All new 2022 Hummer EV truck

Last Updated:

This is a very early video teaser for the all new Hummer Electric pick up truck.

By the end of 2021, that new Hummer will not be the only large pick up truck available.
Since the new Ford F-150 will also offer an electric version. And other brands like Rivian and Fisker are planing EV pick ups for around the same time.
But also, GMC.
Which means GMC will offer both the Hummer and the GMC Sierra electric pick up. Why??
On the subject of why: 1000HP and 0 to 60 in 3 seconds. Why?
Why this obsession with ridiculous power and speed in electric vehicle?
For most drivers, 0 to 60 in 3 seconds is just too fast! It is just way too much power in the hands of regular, untrained drivers who do not have the skills to handle it.
While I do like the design of the new Hummer (at least from the little we can see here), I just don’t get the reasoning behind this half way rebirth of the brand…

  1. To reach 1g at a linear acceleration, you must accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.74 seconds. That seems to be the performance goal of all the latest supercars… and too many EVs including the new trucks

  2. What’s the reasoning behind this crazy ass Hummer pickup? I’m going out on a limb and guessing… to make money. I mean, I have no need for a pickup whatsoever but now I kind of want one.

  3. They have to make huge claims and put crazy power in these vehicles to get anyone's attention. Also truck buyers want to brag. Hard to get a truck buyer to look twice at an EV. Truck buyers have a hard time accepting a Twin turbo V6 or a turbo 4 cyl let alone electric. It doesn't make noise, range anxiety. Hummer is all about marketing…nothing else. And it will help sell these and make some money. GMC will be less money but also not make less money for GM. None of this is practical…
