I promise not to post anymore vehicle marketing videos, but I will say that whoever did this video for GM did a great job.
I saw the announcement on line yesterday for the 2021 EV Hummer at a price of ~$100K +, and doubted there would be that many takers; but the video delineates the capability of the vehicle much better than the announcement, and its off road prowess looks to be very impressive. Hopefully, the price of electric computerized vehicles will fall like the price of computers fell..............
1,000 Hp - really???
11,500 ft lbs of torque - yikes!
0-> 60mph is ~ 3 seconds
~ 350 miles range with 100 mile added in 10 minutes of 800 Volt charging
4 wheel steering - I think Nissan did that with the 300ZX didn't they?
Under armored and with factory rock sliders
The video hints at tire pressure lowering from the dashboard 15 PSI, but does not expressly promise it. Edit -> further investigation reveals that tire pressures are not changeable from the dash, but require individual attention outside the vehicle, one at a time
Extract mode lifts the vehicle frame/body pan about 6 in higher in slow speed modes
Stock 35 inch tires, with room ( physical and electrical ) for the expected 37 inch tires some will want
Introducing CRAB MODE - now that is interesting - the ability to drive diagonally from the vehicle axis. I don't think we have seen this sort of mobility in an SUV before
And the roof panels all come off, to allow the "Jeep" open air driving experience
The interior looks pretty luxe, but nice. I think the video screen is 14 inches or larger - one only gets a very brief sight of it when the roof is removed
PLEASE - Watch the video, and report your impressions of the new Hummer EV and of the videography of the video as well. This is a marketing video, disigned to sell the viewer a new Hummer, but it is well done, and dots a lot of off roaders "i"s
I think this one may compete with the CyberTruck and the Rivian pretty nicely - I am begining to think I may really want one of these vehicles. It seems doubtful we'll ever see a real Badger. The demise of petroleum powered pickups is dawning - we only need 600 mile range batteries with rapid recharge for those who are towing large trailers. As I think about this Hummer EV, an SUV body style might be even nicer than a pickup.......
