We reported two weeks ago the official reveal of the Hummer EV, scheduled for May 20 in Las Vegas could be delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Today a GM spokesperson confirmed the delay with the release of the following statement:

While we cannot wait to show the GMC Hummer EV to the world, we will reschedule the May 20 reveal date. In the meantime, the team’s development work continues on track and undeterred. We invite all to stay tuned for more stories on this super truck’s incredible capability leading up to its official debut.

Along with the announcement of the delay, the automaker also released a new teaser video of the Hummer silently driving through a forest on YouTube.

Despite the cancellation of the reveal, GM says the production of the electric truck is still on schedule and will go on sale in late 2021 as planned. The automaker didn’t announce when the reveal will eventually take place.
