A special driving mode called Crab Walk, designed for tight conditions, has become one of the technological innovations implemented on the new GMC Hummer EV electric pickup. In the video posted, the manufacturer showed how this mode works.
- In the episode (at 3:54 minutes of the video), dedicated to the "crab mode", the pickup truck is driving along a narrow road in rocky terrain. A fragment of a rock blocks his way. With traditional steering, it would be difficult to maneuver in such a situation.
- When the Crab Walk mode is activated, both the front and rear wheels of the Hummer are forced to rotate at an angle of up to 10 degrees, which allows it to move almost diagonally. GMC believes that this solution will significantly increase the pickup's maneuverability in difficult road situations.
- The GMC Hummer EV was unveiled the day before. The electric pickup, which received a name that has not been used since 2010, was equipped with an all-electric power plant with up to 1,014 hp. and a host of innovations that simplify off-road driving. The $ 112,595 top-of-the-line pickups, Edition 1, which are the first to hit the market, sold out on pre-orders in less than a day.
- A similar mode of operation of the power plant for maneuvering in confined spaces is also available in the competitor of the new Hummer - the Rivian R1T pickup. The developers called it a "tank turn": the right and left wheels of the pickup can rotate in different directions, which allows the R1T to turn literally on the spot.
