2023 GMC Hummer Electric SUV Leaked Via GM Investor Call
With the 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup officially revealed and out in the open for all to see, anticipation has moved to the truck’s close sibling, the yet to be officially revealed Hummer EV SUV. General Motors has been clear about when we should expect to see the fully electric Hummer SUV reach dealerships: Sometime in 2022 (after the EV pickup), as a 2023 model. Less obvious is when we might, you know, actually lay eyes on the new electrified GMC Hummer off-road SUV. That time is now.
Someone on a GM investor video call nabbed the above image of a 2023 Hummer EV SUV prototype—and promptly dropped it on the internet via HummerChat.com for all the world to see. The SUV model appears to be parked behind the company’s presenters, namely CEO Mary Barra and Doug Parks, executive vice president of global product development, purchasing, and supply chain. Another future GM electric vehicle, perhaps the yet-unseen Chevy Bolt EUV, is just visible in the upper-right corner of the shot.

The Hummer SUV shares its face and blistered fenders with the pickup truck model we’ve already seen, and its basic shape matches that of an official Hummer teaser photo seen here. The blacked-out roof and white paint treatment matches the Edition 1 first-year limited-edition Hummer EV pickups that sold out rapidly, perhaps hinting that the SUV will also be offered in rare first-model-year Edition 1 guise. The SUV is, as expected, essentially a Hummer EV pickup with a fixed roof over the bed area. We suspect that also means it’ll be available with up to 1,000 horsepower, wild off-road features including a “crab walk” function, and nifty design details, just like the truck model.
Final details will have to wait until GM officially unveils the 2023 Hummer EV SUV, which, by the appearances of the vehicle in the investor call photo, could be fairly soon. On a separate earnings call, GM indicated plans to move up several new vehicle releases, and the company’s electric-car team is currently amidst a frantic push to deliver a gaggle of new EVs to various brands, from Cadillac to GMC to Chevy. The pickup, for example, was turned around in lightning speed.
