GMC Hummer EV’s “Crab Mode” Uses 4-Wheel Steering to Move Diagonally for Obstacle Avoidance

For months now we’ve known that GMC is resurrecting the Hummer as an electric vehicle, and now they’ve announced when it will be unveiled: On October 20th. To whet the appetite, they’ve released this teaser of a rather unusual trick the vehicle can perform:

“The supertruck’s industry-leading Crab Mode feature is enabled by the GMC HUMMER EV’s four-wheel steering capability, allowing it to move in a diagonal direction – functionality that is tailor-made for off-roading customers.”

Just imagine if the wheels could turn a full 90 degrees–parallel parking something this size would be a breeze!
