Rear wheel steering ? Awd or 4wd? “ 1 2 or 3 electric motor option. Sounds cool can’t wait to see it

I've just watched the 3rd auto blogger declare this thing has "1000hp & 11,500ftlbs". This is bullshit. The Tesla Semi is reported to be using four of the Model 3 motors, (to generate about 2000ftlbs total); for an 80,000lb rated tractor trailer. GM's electric suv is somehow going to generate more than 4X the torque of Tesla's big rig? Yeah, right.

It’s a misleading math equation using the first gear ratio and the final drive ratio. Under the same equation the new big gas truck that has 910 ft pound would have over 14,000 ft pounds

Like when I reset the fuel mileage button on my Ecoboost F-150 while going down Cajon Pass and suddenly instead of the 15.1 long-term mpg it's getting 86mpg.

Does it come with a gas/diesel generator backup? Whatever "range" they list would be greatly diminished once you start loading the electric motor down off-road. I do like the concept, the practicality for off-road? Not so much.

It's an EV so no.

Any fuel-burning generator would make it a hybrid.

Yes, range listed is city/highway miles, not off-road miles.
