Hummer SUV – An electric monster SUV

Hummer was originally a civilian version of the HMMWV (High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle, pronounced Humvee), which the US military used during the Gulf War in 1990 and 1991.

After the manufacturer AM General made a version of the monster car for Arnold Schwarzenegger, there were so many who wanted the like that the production of a civilian version was started.

The car was big, thirsty, uncomfortable and very inconvenient. Even with two smaller editions, customers got bored and bankruptcy became a fact in 2009.

Can be ordered now

Now Lobster is back. Later this year, a pickup version with electric drive will be on the road. At Easter, General Motors (GM) showed off a solid, electric Hummer SUV, which will be on the road in early 2023. Already now the car can reserved on the website to GMC.

Good to know before you order, is that the price of the first edition will be 106,000 dollars – around 900,000 kroner before shipping and delivery costs to Norway. In addition, it is not possible to predict what the Norwegian authorities have come up with when it comes to taxes on electric cars in 2023. Beyond the year in 2023, there will be some cheaper editions.

Camera under the car

By the way, it is not certain that the car can be approved in Europe at all. Tesla’s Cybertruck, which will be Hummer’s toughest competitor, was initially too large to fit the requirements of European type approval.

If you want a so-called off-road package on the car, it costs just under 50,000 kroner extra. This is also an exciting package that includes 35-inch tires, steel plates that protect the car’s chassis, electric latches on the front and rear axle, and a camera that shows the underside of the car when driving in the terrain.

Range 480 km

We do not yet know how big the battery pack in the Hummer EV will be, but according to GM it will be able to give the car a range of up to 480 kilometers.

The three electric motors will provide a total of 830 horses and be able to take the car from 0-96 km / h in 3.5 seconds. In addition, the car will probably come with four-wheel steering, which will make it easier to maneuver both in the terrain and in tight parking spaces.

The plan is to build 23,000 cars a year, according to GM.

No tougher

Hummer boss Duncan Aldrer is aware that this will be the toughest SUV we’ve ever seen:

– We envision that Hummer’s electric SUV will be the toughest and best ever built. It will have the best terrain properties, while at the same time providing high comfort on the road. Customers also get more equipment to choose from than in any other SUV. The car can be tailored to each family’s lifestyle, says Duncan Aldrer, vice president of Global Buick and GMC.

30 new electric cars

By the way, the first pickup version of Hummer’s new electric car has already been produced, and was auctioned off to charity at the end of March. The price was 2.5 million dollars – around 21 million kroner.

GM CEO Mary Barra has previously launched a plan to invest $ 27 billion – $ 230 billion – in the development of electric and self-driving cars and launch 30 electric car models by 2025.
