    *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.*

      @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.

      @TriccT Actually, you don't need a full C-Class. For vehicles with GVWR between 3,5, and 7,5 tonnes C1 is enough but it's very rare for someone to get this one. Usually you already go with a full C-class.

    • Ocato92
      Ocato92 8 days ago

      I just want to point out that you need a C-class Driving Licence for vehicles with Gross vehicle weight rating of over 3,5 t. GVWR is the maximum acceptable weight of fully loaded vehicle. Here just the vehicle alone weights 4,1 t, so GVWR is probably way over 6 tonnes! You needed C-class Licence even for Hummer H1, which weighted about 3,3 tonnes.

      @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.

    • Courtney Sutherlin
      Courtney Sutherlin 5 months ago +1

      @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.

    • dante42lk
      dante42lk 5 months ago +1

      Yep, screens are cheaper than actually designing a proper dashboard and quality control for the buttons.

    • Crispy
      Crispy 5 months ago +1

      @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.

    • Răzvan Maioru
      Răzvan Maioru Month ago

      @Alex That's the maximum allowed weight though. Which means, if you weigh 74kg, carrying a single passenger the same weight as you will put you over the 4,250kg. And that's without counting any cargo, not even a single water bottle. I seriously doubt they set the official maximum allowed weight so that you can't even use three of the seats, so it's probably illegal on a B licence

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

    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.

    I think the most impressive thing about it is the range. From going to one of the worse environmental vehicle to one of the better EV's out there, I like it. I like the design, the features and everything. But, like the original Hummer, it's not practical on the street. It can be driven and used everyday, of course. But, that doesn't mean it's practical.
    On and IT CAN GET TO 60 IN 3 SECONDS is something that shouldn't be. But, there it is. WOW!!!

      @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.

    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.

    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.

    GM is so completely out of touch with what most customers really want and require in a vehicle.
    Chrysler had nailed it, in those regards when it made the big, boxy and roomy Town & Country mini van.
    GM should be making large, boxy SUVs with very wide bench seats, lots of head room, leg room, side to side
    room and lots of room for passengers and rear cargo.
    It's easy to get in and out of the Town & Country mini van and you don't need a ladder to climb up into it.
    Most drivers do not go off roading or tow with their trucks / suvs.
    Drivers do not want to be crushed up against the door, side pillar, center floor console, left front wheel well or
    squeezed into a bucket seat.

    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.

    I was one of the first in SoCal to own an H2, I ran an off-road club and I still have my H2 some 20 years later. I also own a Jaguar I-Pace and Porsche Taycan Turbo S so I'm big on EV and have the money to buy toys. I'm going to pass on the Hummer EV, I'd be happy to live the rest of my life without having to deal with finding parking for such a huge/wide vehicle....the term impractical comes to mind....and coming in at a whopping 9,000 pounds is ridiculous, it'll still require a lot of energy to move that thing around. And even with a 300 miles range, it's still impractical for off-roading because you often drive hundreds of miles to get to and from the trail and the weight & width off-road will still suck. I'm gonna wait until Ford comes out with a Bronco EV because the size is much more practical....that or wait for GM to downsize this goliath monstrosity much like they did with the H3. GM builds what they think people want but they don't do the research. Too big, too heavy, too wide and for most people, too costly.

    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.

    • ProCal
      ProCal 5 months ago +1

      @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.

    • NiceGuyRides
      NiceGuyRides 5 months ago

      @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.

    • ProCal
      ProCal 5 months ago +1

      ​@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.

    • NiceGuyRides
      NiceGuyRides 5 months ago

      @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.

    • ProCal
      ProCal 5 months ago +1

      @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.
