Declaring the onset of a "quiet revolution," General Motors announced this week that it is bringing back the Hummer vehicle under the GMC label, resurrecting the famed name on a 100 percent electric truck that makes 1,000 horsepower.

An ad spot released on Thursday and debuting during the Super Bowl on Sunday depicts a thundering herd of horses running across the American plains. The commercial's audio then mutes completely, after which viewers are told: "1,000 horsepower will sound like this," a nod to the operational silence for which electric vehicles are famous.

The vehicle is set to be revealed in full on May 20 and available for purchase in fall 2021.
