GMC Hummer EV looks massive when parked beside a Tesla Model Y

A Tesla Model Y owner was surprised to see a GMC Hummer EV parked beside his car when he came out of a Starbucks coffee shop in Detroit, Michigan. Although a Model Y electric SUV is larger than a Model 3, it looks pretty small compared to the Hummer EV.

Actually, the Hummer EV pickup truck is a direct competitor to the Tesla Cybertruck both in size and in the pickup segment. The following pics with two different angles show how massive the Hummer EV is in contrast to the Model Y.

However, if we compare the length of the Tesla Cybertruck and the Hummer EV, the Cybertruck is 40.3 inches (1,024 mm) longer than the Hummer EV (237.1 in vs. 196.8 in respectively). So when we get a chance to see both electric pickup trucks side-by-side in the future, the stainless steel body Cybertruck will look much larger than the Hummer EV.

“Finally got to see the Hummer EV up close today at our local Starbucks. The size of this vehicle next to our Model Y is crazy. Also saw the 4-wheel steering in action when they pulled out of the parking lot. Very cool, Love seeing more varieties of EVs on the street,” the Model Y owner posted on Reddit.

GMC calls this 4-wheel steer-ability “Crab Mode”. Tesla is working on a similar 4-wheel steering capability for the Cybertruck. “We’re adding rear-wheel steering, so it can do tight turns & maneuver with high agility,” Elon Musk said in a tweet while giving an update about the Cybertruck development earlier this year.

General Motors has set up a dedicated EV assembly plant in Detroit-Hamtramck, MI and named it Factory Zero (hinting towards zero-emission cars manufactured at the facility). Factory Zero is expected to start production of the Hummer EV Pickup late this year and the Hummer EV SUV in 2024.

The Hummer EVs that are mostly seen in Michigan these days are the production-ready prototype driven by GM employees for testing and calibration.

Before the Hummer EV could go into production, Rivian has already started rolling its R1T electric pickup trucks off the production line and Giga Texas is also getting ready for 2022 Cybertruck production.

For now, we will keep a detailed spec-to-spec comparison of the Hummer EV vs. Cybertruck for another time. But for now, you can browse a detailed comparison of the Rivian R1T vs. the Cybertruck I composed back in 2019.
