Electric Hummer teased by General Motors

Side profile images of the upcoming reborn Hummer have been revealed by General Motors in the US overnight. And before anyone is wondering why GM is reviving a brand that symbolised gas guzzlers and excess, it's worth noting these will be fully electric vehicles. In a video posted to the GMC website, the silhouettes of a twin cab pick-up and an SUV wagon can be seen. A clay sculpting of the car, and a body shell, are also shown at various points during the video.

But there is a big twist: according to reports out of the US it will aim for a more environmentally-friendly image with a line-up of electric utes and SUVs.

GM says selling Hummer

Update: Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery Co named as buyer. Revised story coming. Following General Motors declaring bankruptcy earlier today, the company has now announced it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with a buyer for its once strong Hummer brand. Although most suspected the sale to happen sooner than later, GM says it's a result of the company's strategic review of the Hummer brand and its current rebuilding efforts.
