“Instant torque!”…”Sealed drivetrain for water crossings!”…”No more MPG worries!”…”1,000 HP!!!…and the list of STUPID comments goes on about the latest publicity stunt from General Motors in revealing the new electric HUMMER.
The electric HUMMER is the latest “shiny object” for people to chase and tout how great it is. IF all electric vehicles were THE answer, which they are NOT, why have they not taken over the road? I know, I have heard those fanboys of electric vehicles say that the break thru in battery technology to allow for electric vehicles to take over is “just around the corner…”
I have written about my take on an electric Jeeps previously, and you can link to that post here.
I find it laughable how many “sheeple” believe first in global warming, and secondly that electric vehicles could have any impact on the fallacy of global warming!!!
Prager University has produced the most succinct explanation of why electric vehicles are NOT “Green”.
IF electric vehicles were ultimately MORE efficient AND better for water crossings and instant torque, why didn’t HUMMER electrify their line up years ago and keep the brand alive?!?!?
The proverbial “horse” has left the barn on electric vehicles with every vehicle manufacturer scrambling to create and/or further develop their “electrification strategy”. With that said, I can understand why GM decided to whore out the HUMMER name plate and show off a $100,000+ toy that very few will be sold of, and have no affect towards a reduction in emissions that those proponents of electric vehicles believe in.
