I like how open it is, which is like some of the ideal open tops today (Wrangler JL). Someone should convert one into a HUMMER EV Landaulet like this G-Class

This is SWEET. I LOVE this. And it's great to be able to come straight to the forum to see it, so thanks, @Oakwood!

This confirms the guesses we had here a few weeks ago, as now we know that the entire roof comes off for open-air off-roading. Really interesting also how the center roof crossbar between the two front panels comes completely out, unlike the back crossbar. That is FAR more open then I expected. And to make matters even better...this removable roof feature is standard on all Hummers!

Also, did you guys notice that there are no connecting beams between the windsheild and center "roll bar" (i.e. there's no frame above the front door windows), and same with the back? Which means that the windows will likely be frameless, like an Olds Aurora...or the new Bronco. And the reason the Bronco went frameless was so that you could just roll the windows down and take off the entire door in one, smaller piece (the lower half of the door with the window rolled inside it). That makes me wonder...could the Hummer have fully-removable doors as well?!?!?

I am SO EXCITED for this comeback!!!!

(Edit - if you guys are on Facebook, I highly recommend giving the "GMC Hummer EV Community" page a follow, I follow it and the admin posts tons of great info. He apparently posts these threads on the page lol, I assume the admin here is the same guy as the admin there, another good way to get updates to come back to the forum and check out the new info)

I did not expect the roof to be so open either! Based on what we see in this photo, GMC seems to really be going after Jeep with the open roof. I would not be surprised at all if they reveal that the doors can come off (either on all models or on specific trims). As far as vehicle teasers go, this is one of the better ones I've seen in recent memory!

Car and Driver has some information regarding the panels and the front t-bar.

The GMC Hummer SUT will come standard with the removable roof panels, although when asked about the availability on the SUV, GMC declined to comment. We also don't know whether or not the electric Hummer's roof will be offered in both hard- and softtop versions like the Jeep Wrangler. The four roof panels and front T-bar will be able to be removed manually by one person, GM spokeswoman Tara Kuhnen told Car and Driver, and there's no connector over the top of the front and rear window.

No only do the screens look huge, but unless my eyes are playing tricks on me the center screen looks THICK.
I noticed that exact same thing, so if your eyes are playing tricks on you, so are mine. Especially that middle screen, if you look at the bottom left of that still frame, it looks like, back-front, the side of that screen is a solid 2 inches thick! WOnder if that is just a pre-production kind of deal, or if it has something to do with durability. Maybe a floating screen that's in an off-road vehicle needs to be thicker and more structurally sound to handle the beating that comes with the territory?

Maybe it's an homage to the H1's chunky interior lol.
