The expected reveal date of the upcoming electric GMC Hummer truck has been postponed indefinitely because of COVID-19

After Arnold Schwarzenegger was spotted cruising around in his electric Hummer H1 truck last December, many car lovers have been anticipating the debut of the official GMC hummer electric truck since then. The initially announced date was May 20, but following recent press statements of American automaker, GMC; the wait will be longer than expected.

According to the press statements of GMC, the production of this electric Hummer pickup truck still continues as planned, meaning that the truck should hit dealerships by 2021 end. Interestingly, this planned arrival period will coincide with that of other popular electric trucks like the “much-hyped” Tesla Cybertruck.

As compensation to fans for the sudden postponement, GMC released a new “teaser” video of this coming electric Hummer truck. This teaser video does not really give many details as the camera was far from the truck.

Check out the released teaser video below;

GMC cannot really be directly blamed for this indefinite postponement of the Hummer electric truck's debut as the COVID-19 pandemic also affects many other automakers in the United States with most auto firms still on lockdown. Everyone is currently waiting to see the turnout of events next month with the hope that the disease will be contained on time and normal activities could begin soon.
