GMC unveils Hummer EV pickup-based overlander concept by Australian off-road experts for rugged exploration

GMC unveiled an intriguing overlander concept rooted in the Hummer EV Pickup platform. This concept debuts at the 2023 Overland Expo Mountain West in Loveland, Colorado, known as the Hummer EV EarthCruiser, a collaboration between GMC and EarthCruiser, renowned for rugged, terrain-ready vehicles.

While not for mass production, a similar version will be available through EarthCruiser next year, with undisclosed pricing.

A standout feature is the roof-mounted carbon fiber structure integrated into the Hummer EV Pickup’s chassis. When folded flat, it’s 90 inches tall, extending to 117 inches. Solar panels on the roof, coupled with a 6.0-kWh battery, provide seven days of off-grid power, supporting appliances, including a built-in refrigerator.

Inside, there’s space for a double bed and a well-equipped kitchen with an induction cooktop, plus a collapsible toilet and outdoor shower, usable indoors.

Overlanding, journeys in remote areas lasting weeks or months, is gaining popularity. Electric pickups and SUVs like this offer precise torque control for challenging terrains, with batteries powering essential devices, complemented by solar panels for recharging.

The 2024 Hummer EV Pickup, with enhanced range at 381 miles, and a new SUV variant with up to 314 miles range, is available. Prices start at $106,945 for the Pickup and $100,395 for the SUV, including destination charges. GMC isn’t taking new reservations as they fulfill existing orders.
