The GMC Hummer EV has been all over the news in the past few months. However, it has never been seen in public. Other than what can be gleaned from the model’s official reveal in October, no one has any idea how it actually looks like.

That is, until spy shots of the upcoming electric pick-up were shared by an anonymous reader of online publication Roadshow, showing that its development is coming along well—and very quickly at that.

According to the online post containing the photos, the new Hummer EV was spotted just outside of the automaker’s Warren Technical Center in Warren, Michigan. The vehicle notably features what appears to be the bodywork that’s bound for final production, which is consistent with what was introduced a couple of months ago.

While still partly camouflaged, the vehicle in the pictures can easily be identified as the new GMC Hummer. The images show the vehicle in motion, which suggests prototypes of the electric pick-up might already be testing or are, at least, being prepared for it.

The spied vehicle is sporting a license plate that spells out “WTFMODE,” which people in the forum think refers to the model’s 1,000-horsepower capability called the Watts To Freedom technology. This launch-control feature allows the truck to go from zero to 60 mph in three seconds.

GMC is expected to launch the Edition 1 of the Hummer EV within the 2021 calendar year. However, units of the variant for the entire production year have all been reserved for buyers. The model will come with removable roof panels, Super Cruise hands-free driving assistant, CrabWalk, and 350 miles of range. It is likely going to be the most expensive new model in GM’s lineup with a starting price of $112,595.

The photos do not exactly reveal what type of testing the Hummer EV is going through. But considering the location, experts believe it to be winter testing.
