2022 GMC HUMMER EV Pickup | Stillwater, OK

To document the development and release of the first-ever all-electric truck, the GMC HUMMER EV Pickup, General Motors has released an exclusive documentary. This feature-length documentary follows the GM team as they developed, tested, and produced this revolutionary vehicle.

The 60-minute film first aired on March 27, on the History Channel. If you missed it, it is now available to stream through History on Hulu or History.com. You can also watch it on GMC’s YouTube channel.

“Our goal was to upend what an electric vehicle is capable of and push the boundaries from 100 years of vehicle development experience,” said Josh Tavel, executive chief engineer. “This documentary captures the soul of a team capable of incredible innovation and resilience. Their learnings are laying the foundation of vehicle development for decades to come.”

Sean King O’Grady directed the film with the help of the Detroit-based WTP Pictures and Hiatus production team. They joined the GM team on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to record testing in freezing temperatures. From there, they travelled to the scorching heat of Moab, Utah.

In the film, you will see behind-the-scenes views of GM’s testing facilities along with an in-depth look at the production process at the Hamtramck assembly plant in Detroit.
