3 second 0-60 at 9000 pounds is absolutely insane this thing is a weapon of mass destruction
3.5 , get ur facts right
This is a totally ridiculous and unnecessary vehicle, even more than the original hummer, considering its weight and speed. The video game animations are just dumb - who at GM thought that was cool? Seems the target customers are rich self-centered gamers with bad taste, who couldn't give a shit about EV efficiency or other cars on the road... kinda like all Hummer drivers.
RIP to the person who gets rear ended by one of these things
@ricky l Yeah I want a hummer too..... Oh you mean the vehicle.
As an European, the crab walk seems very nice for the inner city parallel parking. Especially for the small and tight spaces of the one-way streets. You'd be able to squeeze this monstrosity really nicely after you bulldoze everything behind you.
Bro I am pretty sure this thing won’t even fit some European streets😂😂
*In most countries in Europe you would need a CDL (licence for heavy trucks) to drive that thing since it's over 3.5 tons.*
Same as Malaysia, 3,5 tons. You need to get a lorry licence to drive this in Malaysia
Don’t forget Europe uses METRIC tons…
@Tommy Apel no I know I thought he was referring to America..where getting a cdl is basically made to make money..you should see the elderly buy these huge things coming from basically driving a sedan thier entire life.
@Aterna Teus not in Europe
You can drive a 45 foot rv that weights 40k lbs with trailer without a cdl
My favorite part of this video is how he is throwing shade at the prospective Hummer owner the whole time LOL
@Autovetus that or a tech geek minority with an inferiority complex- it could definitely be either of the two I wager
Does he mean a tech-geek-white-suprenacist type of a person ?
@Charlie Rose you don't need to be a Tesla fan to dislike this vehicle
I’m not a Tesla fan whatsoever, but this truck is completely bananas. It doesn’t make sense for most people. Even if you can afford it… it just makes you be like hell nah!
He's a Tesla simp what did you expect
As someone who lives full time in an RV and have been waiting for EV options, I can tell you crab walk would be AMAZING when parking an RV. Normally to make left and right adjustments you have to move both the truck and trailer forward and backwards. Crab mode seems like it would let you change the angle of the trailer without the extra back and forth motion.
I can see these doing well in larger cities of Texas. Majority of the full size 4 door trucks are used for commuting by one person.
@Scarysunburns I am aware that more resilience isn't the same as perfect resilience, Gary.
@Lex Slate that narrative would make sense if Missouri and Oregon, both part of the East and west power grids respectively, suffered power outages of similar scale as Texas. So your power diversion strategy didn’t even work for them. It’s almost as if the storm that rolled through was just that bad and extremely tough to plan for in any scenario.
@I Pleedafif If Texas had not sealed off its power grid from the rest of the country in order to avoid having its utilities subject to the laws which apply to interstate commerce, then even if half the generating capacity on the Texas Freedom Grid crapped out, it could draw power from places with working power plants.
@Lex Slate Different cities have different priorities. I live in a city where the processing plants would lobby the shit out of Abbott if he let power go out for too long. It does need upgrading either way.
Personally, I like the style of this channel a lot. Not as high production as MKBHD but it makes it kinda feel like he is talking more directly to you and feels less scripted. Not saying I dislike the other channels style though, both are great.
Less bells and whistles and just raw meat
Marques Brownlee, the type of guy to imitate Doug Demuro’s low-tech car reviews.
hmmm, kind of like.. idk DADDY DOUG MAYBE
@Troy Meekhof and a likable person
Modern youtube style vs classic youtube style. Can't hate on the well rounded and refined high production style youtube videos but they make our community feel like TV or something, like a large very disconnected corporation. Gotta love the 'broadcast' yourself classic style youtube videos where everything feels real and personal. I feels easier to trust someone or atleast believe their ideas are their own and not paid for or scripted just because it sounds better or makes money
I will say, out of all the EV pickup designs, I like this one the most aesthetically.
Yeah and it's crap
I thought it was one sexy car, but maintenance and parking must be hell.
Check out the XL it’s in all black with the removable roof
Better than the cyber truck
Hummers have always been impractical. They tried making them smaller to make them practical and it ended up killing the brand
It’s gaudy, heavy and excessive but it perfectly captures the H1 vibes that the H2 and H3 lost. It looks durable, it looks heavy (it damn sure is), it looks like it’ll get you through a brick wall.
The tailgate also has another feature that I didn’t see covered. The little cutout section also opens up for a step up into the bed.
Every truck has that now
This is the best EV ever because it has enough bed for a fuel tank and generator 😊
Ya my Silverado has that, I think its standard on Chevy/GM after 2022
The vibration through the seat is probably a safety feature knowing people are taking their hands off the wheel much to often to go on their phones. Red light, drive through... going 120km on the highway lol. Literally both hands! So I appreciate it.
This car is a massive feat of engineering and could be absolutely terrifying in negligent hands
Yes.... in the hands of U.S. military
And it will take a week to put out the fire.
Anyone who owns this monstrosity is negligent by default
Putting a 200+ kwh battery in a car is dumb engineering. Just stuffing batteries in an inefficient motor and heavy body is just stupid.
Marques - you make the best review videos over all - your style is impecable and your direct and honest way of explaining things ….just works!! Giant new fan from Denmark 👍😎🇩🇰🇩🇰🇩🇰
serioulsy? usually, you make clear comparaison to see the difference. If I am interested to buy this truck. After this video, I still have no clue if it worth or not. The video do nothing than throwing: it is a ROG phone!
@BenGSynth we have alot of ev cars like bmw hyundai tesla and all those. We don't have a lot of trucks because our roads are not that big
Do you guys have lots of EVs there? How's life in Denmark?
Nice tour! What a huge beast of a machine. The brake regeneration paddles are great in traffic but leave a slightly sea sick feeling if you use the heavy setting.
It's so good it break everytime
This vehicle has gotten me through so many hard times, it’s been a vehicle that’s literally saved lives. I wouldn’t be able to complete tasks without it. I think all of us playing modern warfare 2 DMZ have gotten used to it!
i am walter white. the one piece, the one piece is real.
Not sure if its been said in the comments yet, but one thing you can also do with that tail gate. You touched base with the handle to help you get in and the speaker system under that flap, but that whole section where the speakers are at actually folds down to become a step as well with said flap to assist getting in the bed. Pretty handy :-D
I think if they scaled this down to a more reasonable size they would sell a lot. It’s a good looking vehicle.
I agree on the center dash buttons, these actually look like a nice fusion between digital and analog.
Qif youve ever been in a H1? a lot of unnecessary center console. Driver and passenger literally in two seperate cockpits lmao
@iMeatbag Ridiculous. When they talk about wire weight I can assure you they aren't talking about these wires. The wires for buttons can be very thin and light and they can plug into the screen panel or some controller around it, they certainly don't go around the whole car.
@iMeatbag that sounds rediculos, the wires needed for those buttons is a very small gauge of wiring. It's only going from the console to the center console.mabye a few grams of wiring for those buttons. That is must rediculos statement I have ever heard. If you put in a customer car stereo the wiring would be one of the lightest things added.
@iMeatbag >there is a reason Tesla doesn't use them if they can Yep, screens are cheaper than actually designing a proper dashboard and quality control for the buttons.
@iMeatbag I don't think weight is the big factor, I think they want to build the simplest car with the fewest parts as cheaply as they can. Besides, the center screen still has all those same wires running to it instead of the buttons.
I’m really liking this channel man! Maybe some build quality checks would be interesting too, pressing on the dashboard, checking some of the panel gaps, stuff like that. I know that’s less tech focused though.
i have to admit those drive change animations are legit cool af
Crab walk mode could be really useful for parallel parking if that ever became a thing with this vehicle
Loving this throwback vlog style of the classic MKBHD years!
One thing you might consider relative to the crab mode, going back to your parking comments, it would let you scoot side to side in a parking space to help your passengers, and given presence when a parking neighbor is present also them, a little better access in turn without getting misaligned with your space.
It's funny you mention this. I'm not an off-roader, so 99.9% of what I use crabwalk for is adjusting in a tight parking spot 😂
I wish more manufacturers would give us buttons with tactile feel for climate control, radio, etc. Much easier to use when you need to keep your eyes on the road.
yeah man, button simply a lot better when driving. i hate touch screen in some of the car just to adjust AC.
they will bring that back as an invention and charge you for it big time.
Physical buttons are too reliable and can’t be monetized. Locking you into software controls means expensive “repairs” for software issues which can be created on a whim.
they could always add some haptics i guess
The screen plus multi menu buttons setup is probably the best UI possible for an ev.
Having such a massive battery would be great for emergency backup power for your house (or even usage as a power wall when not using the truck), like the ford lightning allows. The hummer battery is almost twice as big too.
@Dane Peterson since you asked, actually yes they are cost effective as battery backups. The largest competitor current is the Tesla power wall, which costs almost $1k per kWh ($12k for 13kwh version). The hummer EV offering over 200kwh of storage at slightly over $100k actually halves the cost of a Tesla powerwall per kw. On top of all that, you actually get a whole capable electric truck as well. Lol Plus, losing power in the winter and inability to heat could cause damage much higher than the cost of your vehicle (frozen burst pipes, etc). Also, the vehicle to load application is useful even when grid power is available, allowing you to charge up your vehicle during cheap super off peak pricing and provide power to your home during peak usage periods, effectively reducing your electric cost by about 2/3rds and helping to reduce peak grid load / electric usage.
Is it worth that price for those 2 instances of power usage? I think you can survive without it
The crab walk mode is to give you some clearance when you're tight and parallel to something.
That paddle on the wheel would actually probably come in handy on steep downhill roads, given the extreme weight of this thing.
The button set up under the UI is actually so nice, better feedback than touch based buttons/settings
As a Hummer H1 & H2 owner who’s trucks live & run in the tundra of northern Canada 🇨🇦 the crab walk would come in handy when the polar bears are blocking your path👇🏼.. (yes that’s a thing) Bring it up here I’ll give that truck a good test off road ( no paved roads up here) cheers from HudsonBay area 🇨🇦
Northern Canada is not a war zone. This thing needs to be tested on a real battlefield ...... in Ukraine.
The batteries won't charge in the tundra bro
you going to carry around 5 gallon jugs of extra electricity?
Amazing. In Germany, you would not even be allowed to drive this with a car licence - everything above 3.5 t requires a (semi)truck licence 😀
What is green about this?
That was the first thing I immediately thought about when hearing it weighs over 4 tons 😂
These vehicles were not licensed as commercial because nobody in the government at the time thought any individuals would want to drive one. That includes all the biggest trucks and SUVs.
It's GM. Trust me u don't need this crap
I like this style of video! The review seems more genuine than a version with snazzy B-roll and cuts.
Crab mode is for parking and trailer maneuvering. Someone might use it off road but it would have marginal and niche utility compared with coordinated steering mode.
I've had my hummer ev edition 1 for 3 months now, and I still love it!!! Most fun I've ever had in a vehicle.
It looks like a fun car
I'm a little jealous!
Ok the 4WS is pretty cool and wish it was available in regular trucks. Just being able to maneuver in tight spaces, it’d be very helpful (not sure if crab walk is useful on road, maybe parallel parking?)
I played this expecting to go "WTF", but I'm actually liking what I see. If I could afford it, and didn't live in Europe (where streets and parking are too tight for such a huge vehicle), I'd totally get one :D.
9:34 This is actually horrifying. A 9,000lb truck doing 0-60 in 3 sec? There's not much that can withstand that kind of momentum.
@AHungryHunky this is my greatest fear as well, imagine a used Tesla M3P in 5 years that only costs 20k used and can rocket to 60 in 3 seconds. I can already see the accidents
Sounds like the perfect pick for bumper cars imo
I suspect everyone thinks everyone else is an idiot on the road, so that is not a tenable filter. I'd bet @AHungryHunky camps in the left lane on the same stretch of road that they are calling out, something I think - an in some states - is not something you should be doing. If road damage is a function of weight, just charge registration fees or tolls by manufactured weight for passenger cars. Insurance will take care of the rest.
@Chutneyperson the whole 1000hp EV is a marketing stunt that will die out fairly soon for everyday cars, because having 1000hp will significantly increase the insurance costs for the car which will make them less accessible to many buyers. What many people in this generation who are obsessed with EV performance forget to realise that even 300 horsepower is quite a lot and let alone 500 horsepower which all sounds modest to them
@Edwin A it being heavier is exactly why it's dangerous... Those giant trucks are also damaging the roads. America needs to lose the truck and suv obsession
It’s like an EV love letter to the Hummer H1 alpha SUT. Fabulously ridiculous. I love it.
I love the way that you get right to the point on your videos. Nicely done!!!
I hate that this exists, but those buttons to control airco and stuff are really well done.
Good review! Would be cool to visually (on Camera) compare the Size against a normal pickup (f150, sierra, tundra etc...). Parking is always an issue with a full size pickup... ;)
This is a great channel. Very honest look at these vehicles. Great attitude. Sub for sure. Can’t wait to see more

@Adan Ramirez lol hater
Do something with your life
Change the last one to "Gamer Truck"
@Zoebby this got me rolling when I saw it in there
@Adam Kittson no prob! Just tryin to help everyone out 👍
I think your EV's reviewing has gone way more interesting than phone reviewing, you see tons of astonishing stuff here, while in phone's world apple adds an animation to 13s and calls it dynamic island in 14s and everybody talks about it, they should review their definition of innovation in 2022-2023, like really review 😂😂
This would be good for surfing/snowboarding or tow a boat/seadoo down to the shore or hitch something along and for camping but, the weight of it is crazy would suck near the city or heavy traffic areas.
I love your EV/ automotive related content!
This truck really is awesome. If money was no object I would get one. I wouldn’t daily it but for trips it would be a lot of fun
This vehicle is definitely for the enthusiast. That’s really it’s only market. It’s big, fast, lots of tech. Towing isn’t the best and god forbid you need this to be towed it’s not going on your average tow truck because of the weight and size. I honestly think it’s more of a gimmick than anything but I do think it’s cool.
I’d love to see you do a auto-infotainment video series. Like a run down of every manufacturer’s attempt to integrate technology into their vehicles (both from a phone integration, and then overall technology usage for climate control, camera, security, display etc) - show how they compare to each other. Could break it up into each price segment, vehicle class, etc. A whole series I think would be fascinating to plan and watch. These are great btw - killing it.
That would be a very short video series considering how slow and outdated a lot of car manufacturers infotainment systems feel like they are from 2008.
Marques, you should've tested it offroad, of course, dude, c'mon! You have to retest it. Load it with people and gear and go at least 200 miles to camp in the wilderness!
it seems like a great experiment project. First Hummer with GMC that doesnt seem outright useless.
Physical buttons instead of only a touch screen is just so good
I think more demos and recording the car doing stuff (like crab walking, or taking off the roof panels) are missing from these reviews. Doug DeMuro also shoots his videos on a phone, and I feel like I learned much more from the first 15 mins of his review because he researches the car so thoroughly and uses tripod shots to show the car as a whole.
rear wheel steering is so cool, should be added to more vehicles
i think they totally nailed it, completely over the top like a hummer should be! 0-60 in 3,5 seconds is hilarious considering the weight
The real hummer (HMMWV) is a spartan, highly mobile special purpose vehicle. Dressing up commercial vehicles like this and labeling them "Hummers" is simply playing to all the wannabes out there who have no real clue.
@T1Oracle Honestly, when you state the weight first and then you get to the fact that it IS speed limited. I tend to find myself nodding in agree to that call.
Thanks for watching my videos 🆙🆙 Hit me up right away 🆙🆙 I have something for you: 🆙🆙
Only thing in the UI they could have tweaked was when you're turning the temp down it flashes red just like when you're turning it up, some newer cars flash blue when your turning the temp colder
Really like the entry level video style. Hope this leads to lots of content here. Have subscribed .
I would turn off the vibration seats, replace the weels and tyres with 20" all terrains and enjoy this fun truck without the roof! This thing is AWESOME!
20” all terrains would be some terrible puny and small tires. Did you mean 20” rims with like, 40” tires?
Once again, this adds a whole new level of driving on the rumble strip for a sense of “pleasure”
The F150 lightning isn’t a great option if you actually need a truck for truck tasks, but it definitely looks practical by comparison to this thing.
The whole "recording on an iPhone" vibe makes it feel a lot more personal, like Marques is just hanging out with us. I like it, good contrast with the other content. I'm excited to see more!
@Richard Holley Not weird at all. On more and more social media platforms I (as a marketer) can see a similar trend. My theory is when it feels too much like a ad, people get out.
Na it's lazy
@RARESABRA LEAKS you sound angry. Who hurt you?
Marques and Doug Demuro should collab on a Hummer Ev video. They both record with an Iphone.
I like it TBH it looks so sci fi and I really like the trunk bed cover being retractable and functional.
the regen paddle was on the bolt, maybe the volt also. kind of a chevy thing. pretty useful I think
When you can review the Silverado EV it’s GMs second ev truck and it’s really interesting compared to this it’s more user friendly and has a lot of interesting features. Love the car videos MB ❤
You had reservations about the Hummer through the whole video and then figured it out at the end. It’s very cool and very high tech that dash is well designed. Kudos to GM they’re really knocking it out of the park!
Marques!! I'm so mad at you that I just found out about this channel yess get into the auto market you are definitely at the top of my list for tech *subscribes now*
I feel like crab walk *could* be useful for parking especially with how big the car is. If you’re lined up straight with a spot but you’re a little to far left you can crab walk right while keeping the car straight on to the parking spot
I’d crab walk just because I can.
@Kyle Hagerty well, in case you did not know, “could” means maybe it does or maybe it does not. I do not have the car and I presume you do not either which is why I left it open ended
@Snuggieman does it?
@Kyle Hagerty what? I just said it could make it easier. Just like autopilot isn’t made for people who don’t know how to drive, it just makes it more convenient
if you cant park it just dont buy a truck
Heavy trucks have safety systems which vibrate the seat if they detect the driver has fallen asleep or is fatigued. Probably safer than vibrating the steering wheel as they may have taken their hands off the wheel (if they're asleep).
How much of a drain on the battery is the air con? What reduction in range would that scenario produce?
Here in Holland you would need a truck drivers license to drive it. But the crabwalking is my favorite, just love it!
The Model Y is getting cheaper, and slightly lighter with the new more energy dense 4860 cell batteries. They're finally getting those cells ramped, so they will be able to use them for Semi, CyberTruck and hopefully soon after, the new Roadster. We'll see if they really do a 200kw pack though. But the new cells are definitely more energy dense.
It is not massive... It is the perfect size 🙂
in Germany you need to have a truck license for this. Everything over 3,5 tons is not considered a car. But if it barely fits in a parking spot in the US it won't in one in europe anyways. That thing is crazy. But seems like the most american EV out there :D
EU is cringe
This is for big wide north American roads
@Chief Enumclaw Ya old simpsons!
This ev at 9000 lbs is more than my Ford 250 super duty diesel. A 4 door big truck that I tow heavy machinery with. That’s a heavy darn vehicle
@Firth33300 I think you should take a trip down here so your mind be blown about how they live poor here is not like poor on most of the countries, also here in USA most people rather buy new than use and that is why there's alot of used cars, financing is easier when you buy new, so yeah here people getting government help and poor are driving brand new cars.
I saw a green one last month and was so shocked to see it on the road, it was massive!
I like the look of the truck very much and especially the interior. Overall a good truck. I just wouldn't be down to get one though because I feel unwary about it being an EV and scared the thing will catch on fire, just thinking of all the crap it has to power and manage.
@BenGSynth ur clever
Gasoline is flammable.
I drive one of the biggest SUVs on the road right now and love it. This Hummer is for people like me who like big trucks and SUVs period. People who like and drive big vehicles already are not gonna complain about the Hummers size trust me. If I could I buy this vehicle without thinking twice
The paddle regen/brake is from the Bolt and something I sorely miss in other EVs
I could definitely see crab walking off road being useful.
The crab-walk mode is there to enable parallel parking that E-Brodozer without crushing nearby smaller cars. Smaller cars like an F150 Lightning. Or a semi tractor. Not my jam. The buttons though! Will the rest of the automotive industry please take note of that setup! That part is awesome.
I'm looking for one with bow thrusters
@Charles Swank you say you work in trucks but someone who understands trucks and vehicle history in general knows electricity is literally the worst option for towing literally anything ever. This is coming from a mechanic who has a dad and younger brother who drives semi trucks. Evs are worthless but if you really want one then I mean they still make smart cars so......
@Dan Mac Actually, I learned to drive in an old Chevy dually and drove that for many years and had a Dodge 2500 (Quad, long bed) for years. Drove box vans and full sized work trucks with service beds for work too. Now I prefer my little truck. Hoping someday GM makes an electric Canyon/Colorado like thing that could tow more than 100 miles. A tall order indeed! And if it weren't for my small RV I'd likely ditch the truck altogether. We had a Bolt for awhile and although it was nothing fancy it was perfect for getting around and short road trips. Kinda reminiscent of old 1980's JDM hot hatches, just electric. I'm looking forward to new electrics in years to come.
Just make sure you never drive a big vehicle, it's hard to go back lol.
So much of this reminds me of my dad's GMC Sierra truck. There's a lot of shared DNA there, like the fancy tailgate (which folds down to be a step, too, try it!!).
While offroading the crabwalk is amazing
Everything he hates about the HumV I actually loved lol. Different strokes or whatever
The main thing I learned here..... If I'm ever driving a Hummer EV, I should constantly be veering into the other lane so I get that warning from the vehicle.
Thanks for living with it for two weeks so I don't have to, but I think I'd rather live with it now 😁😁
That infotainment system with its UI is something I hope all car manufacturers adopt for their sedans because that's just brilliant design. All the little things that would be annoying and dangerous to access while driving (fan speed) all have physical buttons/knobs/switches to control. Good stuff!
I hope automakers stop investing in infotainment period and just focus on making sure CarPlay and Android Auto work flawlessly.
Let me add, the tailgate is a split tailgate, like the other gmc pickups for easier access. I feel as if this is your first pickup you have owned
Let's talk about how Marques gets serious when at 8:55 talks about being hit on the butt for driving warning. And that might explain the kind of person who will be buying this vehicle. ;-)
Great review & editing! Keep up the excellent work!
Its got the multi pro tailgate. There are two buttons on the gate to lower the step. (Where the kicker speakers are)
I would have to upgrade to bigger wheels to decrease the wheel to tire ratio
This is such an interesting car, because even though its so big and has a small potential pool of buyers, you can tell that a lot of thought went into it. Some of the features are something every single other (electric) car should have aswell, especially the dash with PHYSICAL buttons/switches! Thats seriously such a smart way of solving a big part of menu navigation and searching for the right settings, which other EVs suffer from. EDIT: I dont like big cars, I rather hate them. What the Hummer does well however is the *details*, like the mentioned dashboard or storage behind the back seats. Those are all things that id like to see on small EVs aswell.
@NiceGuyRides I disagree, I think the design is well thought out and there is definitely new technology or forms of implementing existing technology that was done better than previously. I also think that EVs will be better in every way than any ICE offroad vehicle could ever hope to be as more models release and that is for 2 simple reasons. Reason 1 being because of its super low center of gravity and ability to place the batteries essentially anywhere on the chassis of the vehicle. And reason 2 being because of the fact that you can put the electric motors directly on the wheels and have truly independent wheel control without loss of torque or power.
@ProCal You keep acting like I have not seen the videos of this off-roading. I have. Time will tell if it can actually stand up to repeated abuse. Good luck if you break something. Again, it is impractical as an true off-roader for various reasons, but hey anyone can choose impracticality over practicality if you got the money. I don't think it is amazing. There is no ground breaking technology in the thing, and for any advantage it gains with crab walking and torque, it loses because of its size, weight and complexity. If off-roading is truly your goal, you'd be better off with something else. If off-roading in a Hummer is your goal, so all your friends can ooh and ahh at your bank account, then by all means. . . I'll wave at you as I am passing you in my Jeep. And back to the breaking point. Trails break the best of off-road vehicles - 3000lb Jeeps on Dana 60 axles. Replacement parts are cheap and rescue is easy for those -not so with this thing. Best keep it in the city where it belongs. I also reiterate the point that 20% of the Jeep trails that I have been on would be impassible in that size vehicle. Some of the other would be seriously damaged by a vehicle of that size and weight, making it crappy for the other people enjoying it. It is not a good design for and off-road vehicle. Ever heard the term tread lightly? It was invented by people who actually use the trails for a reason. As far as the Lightning. I think it is much closer to a competent off-road EV. It does need a lift however and they are going to have to work some major voodoo on the suspension to make that happen. So far all I have seen is a leveled lightning. My reservation was put in 7 days after launch, so we will see. It is hampered by its legacy design however. Manufacturers need to get out of their box with EVs to get the most out of them, ie. Cybertruck exoskeleton, Canoe cab forward design. . . Sky is the limit for the future.
@NiceGuyRides Sounds like a bit of gatekeeping at the end there. And yeah, I agree it is still super impractical and outlandish vehicle, just like all of its predecessors. But for the moment until more EVs come out, it is one of the very few EVs that are really good for offroad use straight from the factory, the Ford F150 lightning being another with maybe some aftermarket tires. You should see it in action, after looking more into it, there are already more 3rd party reviews of it offroad that demonstrate it's capabilities very well straight from factory (unfortunately can't link because YT hides or deletes comments with links). But I digress, it's still an amazing EV with a ton of useful features and a excellent platform to build future models off of. Chances are within the next year or two we will see more EVs that are even more capable offroad and more affordable as well. We might even see a smaller version of the Hummer EV released (smaller than the already upcoming SUV version) that is more reasonable in size and again less expensive.
@ProCal I think my point is that you lose the electric advantage with the Hummer because of its weight. You would be better off buying a gas truck, cheaper, less damage to the trail, not as wide, 0 range limitations. . . . Again, the only real advantage this has is ego. It is a status symbol, not well engineered and should be at the very bottom of any true off-roaders list of vehicles.
@NiceGuyRides lmao if it was gas and weighed the almost 9000lbs it does it would be around 9 mpg. Let’s not act as if large cars have great gas mileage in the first place. The fact that something so large and weighing so much can get a similar “mpg” to something less than half its size is an engineering marvel and proof of EVs efficiency over ICE cars.
I actually liked a lot on this truck, just needs to be available in a smaller package. Here in the UK this vehicle would just be too large to use
You are right, and you couldn't drive it here on a car licence!
In case anyone was wondering, the hummer is big and heavy. This also looks really cool!
Definitely agree with the assessment you made. F150 is a better everyday man’s EV truck, Rivian is a better adventure vehicle (size reasons), this is a “IM A MAN!” EV vehicle.
I’m just amazed that the 0-60 is that fast
Love your channel so much! Keep up the good work!! :D
Those animations for the driving modes are honestly so cool. Also the differential locks give me hope for future off-road electric vehicles
I loved the animations
They worked with Epic Games (Fortnite fame) to create those animations.
Where I live, a vehicle that heavy wouldn't classify as a car, nor even as a 'light truck', you'd actually need a frickin 'heavy truck'-license to drive it. It safe to say that monstrosity will never be sold in my country.
That rear view Mirror is sick, switching the real mirror from camera was so clean
Can you do an episode on everything charge cost related? -cost to charge at home using regular outlet, the GM charger, chargepoint stations -time to charge at these points. etc.
