That actually makes too much sense for GM (Government Motors)...lol

The Hummer was known as a gas guzzler. Wonder if this reincarnation will become known as the 'Electric Meter Guzzler'?[emoticon]


What makes sense is building them where they already announced, Detroit - Hamtramck. A lot closer to the 2 plus billion dollar battery plant they're building in Lordstown OH with partner LG.

Some of you folks need to get off that Government Motors foolishness. Nothing like beating a dead horse to death for 12 years.....lol

Good competition for Gladiator and Bronco. Can't wait to see reports showing real off-road capability. Now if could be engineered to be towed four-down this thing could build a real following.

The dead horse isn't dead enough and probably won't be for a long time.
So, Government Motors isn't going anywhere anytime soon. [emoticon]

An onion has a thicker skin than you do..lol

We own one (Suburban LTZ) and I still refer to them as Government Motors. Always will.

Why not build them in Lordstown at the shuttered Cruze plant, that is even closer.

Pole Town is a lot farther away.

What’s funny about an electric Hummer? Interesting idea. You don’t have to buy one.

Must be time for our weekly gas vs electric discussion. There hasn't been one for a least a day or two. Im sure most people will be able to afford an electric hummer when it comes out. I cant wait to get mine.

Talk about projection lol

That boxy Hummer is more Tonka while Cybrtrk is futuristic most aerodynamic truck ever built.

500 mile range and Tesla Supercharger network makes it clear winner.

Where will you Recharge Hummer driving long distance?

Ive been drivin Chevys over forty years now but my next truck will be Tesla.
That rust n dent resistant stainless steel body makes it worth alone.

Watching that referenced video, I get a kick out of certain medias making a big deal over the failure of Tesla's window when hit by the bowling ball. It broke but the bowling ball did not go through it. If you were sitting in a normal truck when that bowling ball hit, you'd be dead.

Anyone woried about window breakage can simply stick on
Safety film inside.
Good idea to prevent break ins anyway.

Some are saying the jump in the Tesla stock price this morning came from 4 manufacturers advertizing EV’s at Super Bowl. E hummer might have to be an option as first four years of production Tesla cybertruck is already pre-reserved.

Interesting that Tesla still doesn’t spend a dime on advertizing.
