Slated to be rolled out in fall 2021, the all-new GMC Hummer EV has been creating waves before its release. The electric vehicle is expected to be loaded with features that have nothing in common with Hummer’s other models.
There are several new attractions launched by General Motors in its upcoming range of Hummer electric vehicles. For starters, there is the UltraVision which is courtesy of the underbody cameras. UltraVision gives 18 angles, each different from the other. The waterproof cameras provide real-time views so that you can choose the best trail. They face the rear and forward direction and are strategically placed so that they can focus beyond the skid plates.
They also sport replaceable lens protectors and a wash function. The especially 35-inch tyres make for towering ground clearance. The specially engineered tires offer optimal balance both on and off the road. A feature that stands out about the Hummer EV range is the stellar off-road driving experience. The independent front and rear suspension make both off-pavement handling and driving on highways a hassle-free experience. Meanwhile, the virtual rear lockers and the e-lockers present on the front give you an optimal level of traction. Ball-spline half shafts maximise articulation and lower steering feedback as you go off-road or go hard cornering.
The car sports tinted sky panels designed to deflect the sun. Then there’s a 14-speaker Bose audio system which enables you to experience enviable acoustics. The vehicle comes with a driving assistance system so that you can also enjoy a hands-free experience. The automatic lane changing feature can be used on over 200 miles of compatible roads. The interiors of the electric car ooze luxury. The interiors sport a unique combination of splendour and innovation. The theme of the design is the lunar horizon which is inspired by the intergalactic landscapes and other scenic landscapes. The interiors are durable and the flooring is suitable for all types of weather. You can have customized data and other settings at your command with the 12.3-inch driver information centre and a diagonal touchscreen.
