Regardless of where you live on this god’s green earth, we all love Hummers. We know these SUVs are one of the biggest vehicles to have ever launched. The last generation Hummer H2 had a gigantic road presence. It made a ton of torque and delivered inferior fuel economy.
The impracticality of the Hummer made it popular, but it was also responsible for its downfall. As the world was recovering from the 2008 financial crisis, people wanted something with low maintenance and a great fuel economy, which is the exact opposite of a Hummer.
So after multiple unsuccessful attempts to revive it, GMC finally stopped the production of Hummer in 2010.
Fast forward to 2021, and the Hummer is back, as an EV nonetheless. The SUV, which was the main enemy of environment activists, has made a comeback as an environment-friendly zero pollution vehicle. It might be the greatest redemption story for a brand in history.
Hummer EV: Why It Makes Sense!
1. Massive Battery Range
The big lithium-ion battery in the Hummer H2 is equivalent to 10,000 very sophisticated mobile batteries. And it provides the massive SUV with enough power to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds. That’s faster than Lamborghini Huracan. Furthermore, despite being so big, the Hummer has a range of over 483 km on a single charge. The Hummer EV also makes more than 15,000 Nm of wheel torque and around 1,000 HP.
2. King of Real And Concrete Jungle
The Hummer EV is easy to drive doesn’t matter the location. It has crab mode, which allows it to move diagonally. Considering its huge size, the Hummer EV also comes with 4-wheel steering for easily manoeuvring narrow turns and corners.
For navigating the wilderness, the Hummer EV feature air canisters that adjust themselves 500 times a second for a smoother ride and also change the ride height depending upon the requirement. The electric SUV also has a water wading capacity of 32 inches, which is about its tyre length.
3. Long Lasting Battery Life
It is a fact that lithium-ion batteries degrade over time. They’re susceptible to change in temperature, humidity and operate optimally within a set range. To ensure that batteries in Hummer EV alleviate these problems as much as possible, GMC is putting them through a lifetime worth of abuse in its facilities and making appropriate changes or improvements.
4. Fully Loaded Features
Hummer EV is equipped with 17 cameras in its body panels, including one underneath the SUV. The roof on the SUV also comes off, which turns it into a convertible. The Hummer EV also features easily replaceable body panels and over a hundred accessories. From the inside, the Hummer EV has a ton of cargo space, 6.5 feet in length from the back of the driver seat to the end of the boot, to be precise.
5. Tech And Machine
The Hummer EV is loaded with tech. In the interior space, it has dual touch screens that offer a plethora of features. Most likely, GMC will install a variant of its autonomous driving software dubbed Cruise in the Hummer EV.
The price range for Hummer EV starts from $79,995, making it more expensive than its potential competitor, the Tesla Cybertruck. However, the Hummer EV will most likely compete against the Rivian R1 electric pickup and SUV.
