Previous rumors have now been confirmed: American automaker General Motors has announced its upcoming all-electric Hummer, reviving the classic SUV. Despite its iconic reputation, the original Hummer brand was brought to a close by GMC back in 2010, but to many fans’ excitement, the massive SUV will make a return, now with an all-electric upgrade which can reportedly make 0-60 mph in just three seconds.

Instead of bringing back the Hummer brand, however, the new line of Hummer EVs will carry the Hummer badge but be sold directly through the GMC brand instead. Production will take place at the company’s Detroit Hamtramck plant, where the American automaker plans on creating a factory specifically for electric vehicles. According to reports, the new Hummer will be released sometime in 2022, coinciding with the release date of Tesla‘s highly-anticipated Cybertruck.

A 30-second ad will air during the second quarter of this weekend’s Super Bowl LIV, and the full car will be unveiled on May 20. Stay tuned as more updates roll in.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, 1016 Industries has created an 840-horsepower widebody Lamborghini Urus.
