GM Considering To Revive Hummer By Going Electric

General Motors had plans to further expand the range but the Global Financial Crisis of 2008 reduced demand and contributed to the automotive giant shutting the brand down as it entered voluntary bankruptcy in 2009.

Now it is the market itself that is demanding models like the missing Hummer, SUVs of large proportions with off road skills, and with that, General Motors is now planning to resurrect the Hummer, but with a huge change, it will be an electric auto.

The Hummers were rustic trucks and SUVs of large size and power.

However, despite gleaning this information about the responsible authorities, the precise perpetrators remained a mystery. If Russian suspects are charged in the Netherlands, it remains to be seen whether they would ever appear for trial.

However, there would be extensive costs with a Hummer revival. With petrol prices high and environmental concerns pressing, GM was unable to find a suitable buyer for the brand.

Reuss had previously confirmed that GM is working on an all-electric pickup to compete with Ford's upcoming battery-powered F-Series, and elaborated that there's a market for a variety of electrified trucks. No, a report from Bloomberg says that GM is mulling over the idea of building an electric Hummer.

IT'S the auto that built its reputation belching diesel exhaust fumes on battlefields for the American military, but Hummer could soon be revived as a clean, green all-electric brand, according to a report out of America. The Hummer name has been synonymous with a rugged SUV with do-it-all capability, which also turned out to be quite the luxury statement in its later years. However, this scalable platform is intended for medium-sized or compact models. The second program would make electric pickups and other full-size vehicles, some of which could go off-road. "I love Hummer", Reuss said on the sidelines of a press conference on June 12. We'll just have to wait if this plan of General Motors will come to life.
