The GMC Hummer EV livestream event was certainly interesting. This is because it wasn't actually an event at all, and it wasn't live. Instead, it was a five-minute CGI commercial showcasing the upcoming electric pickup truck's incredible capability. When the video ended, we expected some onstage action and a real truck, but sadly, that wasn't the case.
A few days later, we learned that GM doesn't actually have a fully functional production-intent Hummer EV yet. In fact, it's just now starting development of the vehicle.
Let's be fair here to say that this isn't a whole lot different from the concept cars we drooled over for years at auto shows. Plus, GM already has the Hummer EV's platform and battery tech completed, in addition to the display copy's exterior and interior features. The company also explained it has a working prototype, but not one that is fully functional.
