Of course we are going to meet the SUV version of the Hummer EV, but I expect we will also get some new and updates information on the Hummer EV program. I am hoping for some good updates...

Towing Capacity?
Updated Range?
New Features?

I don't expect to see any more specs until later this year when they're ready to do media testing and reviews.

I think we'll get updated range, seeing as they're about 6 months away from early productio. I don't expect towing yet...but I definitely expect range, maybe some charge specs, real torque, etc.

I hope we get something worthwhile to chew on soon, GM has been too stingy with final details... for me anyway... haha! Even something small would be nice, like "plug and charge capability"? They have a bunch of these things on the roads now, and it looks like they are racking up quite a few miles, so @Aloppen should have a pretty good idea how the numbers are coming in compared to their original estimates.

In addition to the all the above things mentioned, I would love to see the latest on the HMI/infotainment system they are going to come out with. I know they will be using Unreal Engine to help with the HMI layout, but I wonder if it will also make it easier to download/play Unreal Engine powered games as well. Even if that's not in the cards, it would be nice to show more of the infotainment. Some videos of GMC videos have shown off some of the widgets, but what is that Sasquatch looking one!? Google will be the base upon which the system is built so we can assume a great mapping system and voice recognition. Both Mercedes and BMW (I know not really competitors in most respects) have been showing more of their upcoming systems, so it would be nice to see what GMC are planning.

Yes, I agree, so much to figure out about the infotainment, this will be the first of GM's new system (rumor is its android based and will have an app store for future purchases.

A few more potentially interesting tidbits found by scouring some more websites:


The patent above relates to making a 3d model of the ground beneath the vehicle and putting it on a screen as well as "telling" the user where there could be clearance issues. This uses LIDAR though, in addition to the cameras already there in the first edition, so it may not come out in the first generation of the Hummer - except maybe as an option? Most of the pieces seem to be there already: the cameras, the 3d graphics possibilities due to the Unreal HMI, the sensors.


The above youtube video has a little bit about the Hummer Infotainment at around 3:35 or so. It shows the "air down mode" available to air down the tires. At around 4:21 it shows a button that has "Rock Vision" - is that the same as Ultravision? I love it when they give little hints/easter eggs as to what's to come in these types of videos. They could just be old mockups and no longer relevant, but it's still kind of fun just to check them out! :)
