Hey! Hey! Watch it buddy!

What's wrong with having vehicles that will endure the apocalypse?

So now I have 2 Hummers, two Pontiacs, two Chevys and a Buick in my stable. I guess if I get this new Hummer, then it's technically a GMC! Wahoo, another name plate.

GM planned to build a new group of premium electric pickups and other vehicles such as SUVs at its Detroit-Hamtramck plant, beginning in late 2021

I remember this being one of the (many) settling points from the GM strike last fall. Didn't realize the platform was going to carry the "Hummer" badge, though. The Hamtramck location is already tooled for the Volt that the location makes sense.

Jeep-like pickup for off-road enthusiasts, the person familiar with the new program said. 

It will be a low-volume vehicle, the first of many large, all-electric SUVs and pickups GM will roll out over the upcoming years.

 

GM has been playing catch up to to Chrysler for a while, now. The (current generation) Chevrolet Blazer (also low volume production) is GM's response to the Jeep Cherokee so, and I'm only venturing a somewhat educated guess here, I'm thinking the "GMC Hummer" (as an aside, that just sounds weird) will be GM's response to the Jeep Grand Cherokee... ?

I am, however with reservation, looking forward to what the automakers bring to the table over the next some years in the form of an all-electric pickup platform. I personally cannot ever see owning a part/full electric truck myself but I am certainly curious as to what is on the  horizon in the form of performance, longevity, serviceability, functionality and so on.
