Roof racks confirmed! Good news, most people predicted this would be the case back in the week leading up to the reveal! Great news.

This has some cool information in the second photo - I should have looked at this more thoroughly a lot earlier! Zoom in and you can see the bimini (folding) top, the wheel choices, a light bar at the top of the windshield, the aforementioned roof rack, a mention of a red accent package, what looks like some kind of storage box for the bed, and various other sundries typically found in the aftermarket.

I am sure someone will make winches, tents and the like for it as well. Now I am just curious what they can do for an electric off road vehicle in particular. Maybe add the onboard air compressor that other electric trucks seem to have and the Hummer doesn't. They have the system to help deflate the tires, not they need something to inflate them. Of course, solar roof panels which could somehow easily plug into the vehicle charge - if even just to add a few miles of range - would be helpful.

Maybe an electric "jerry can" to put some juice in it - Rivian was cooking something up for that: Rivian Files Patent For Detachable Battery Pack
There is a startup that ironically will try and use a gas powered engine to generate electricity to charge the vehicle as well:

Just like Jeep, and soon Bronco for Ford, GMC and their dealers have the capability to make some good money on accessories for the Hummer EV. They might not be able to sell oil changes to customers, but at least they can sell these types of things! And hats, T-shirts, coolers...

That second image is hard to read but I can see:
  • Cross Rails/Roof Rack
  • Bimini Top
  • Red Accent Package
  • Assist Steps
  • Accessory Lamps - Perimeter Illumination
  • Splash Guards
Man, good eye, @JimsH3. I like that roof rack option, plus the bimimi top!

Here's another look at how the Sky Panel Storage Set looks in the Hummer's frunk.

I think its unfortunate GM is charging us for this storage system, since storing the panels in the frunk was presented to us initially, the kit should be included with the truck. IMO I feel like this is a bit of bait and switch, but it is what it is.. haha!

I read something on this the other day. The panels can be stored safely in the frunk for normal driving, but said they would not be protected if going offroad. There is a risk of them bouncing around, so you can purchase this system to further protect the panels. I do wish it came standard, but also depends on your driving and people might not feel the need to buy them.

I see, that makes sense... I might leave them off all summer, and in that case at home in the garage.

I wonder how easily the roof rails and bed rails would be to take off and reinstall? I could see that I may want to use them from time to time, especially with the bed being only 5'.....but I doubt that I would want to drive around with them all the time... Especially the roof rails as it may make a difference getting into a garage or something... But for a road trip to carry extra stuff they could be really useful.

I think they are made by Thule, just clip off and on with a quick release button...
