(CNN)The Hummer is back. But it’s a much different truck than it used to be.
General Motors revealed the new all-electric GMC Hummer EV Tuesday night, officially bringing back the Hummer name after a decade.
Hummer had been known for making large, rugged off-road capable SUVs and trucks that were often criticized for burning lots of gas. This Hummer pickup truck, however, will burn no gasoline at all.
But engineering the vehicle to be electric didn’t just give the Hummer’s eco-bona fides a boost, however, according to Phil Brook, vice president of GMC marketing and advertising. It also helped improve both the on-road and off-road handling.
