The company said Tuesday it will offer its GMC Hummer EV pickup to help the service meet its need for a light to heavy duty BEV and reduce dependence on fossil fuels in garrison and operational environments.
The Hummer comes with a 24-module Ultium battery pack and can produce 1,000 horsepower, 11,500 pound-feet of wheel torque. The vehicle is capable of up to 800-volt DC fast charging, offering up to nearly 100 miles in 12 minutes.
“Leveraging GM’s advanced technology, this demonstration will prove to our U.S. Army customer what an all-electric supertruck can do and how the underlying technology can be leveraged for future defense needs, whether on an installation or in a tactical environment,” said Steve DuMont, president of GM Defense.
GM Defense is investing $35 billion in electric vehicles and autonomous vehicle platforms in support of defense and government customers worldwide.
