General Motors plans to reintroduce the Hummer to consumers as an electric pickup truck under the GMC brand, unnamed sources familiar with the matter tell the Wall Street Journal.

The big picture: The revival is a part of automakers' race to introduce more electric trucks and SUVs to the market. Tesla unveiled its version of an electric pickup dubbed the Cybertruck in November, expected to arrive by late 2021.
