The electric Hummer ready for war


Having become entirely electric, will the famous American Hummer return to its war roots? Not sure that there are fast charging stations in Iraq or Afghanistan …

Originally, the Hummer was called HUMVEE and was used by the military in the US Army. It was not until 1992 that the AM General brand marketed a civilian version of the large 4×4 designed for driving in deserts during military operations.

Passed in 1998 under the bosom of General Motors then extinct at the end of the 2000s, the Hummer brand has just returned to the catalog of the American group with a 100% electric model, capable of developing up to 1000 horsepower. But he no longer has anything of a warrior.

A Hummer to wage war?

On Instagram, Oscar Vargas virtually imagines this new electric Hummer in a military version, HUMVEE style. All the same, a major problem remains to be managed: even with a range that can exceed 500 kilometers, the constraints linked to the charging of electric batteries seem quite simply incompatible with military use.
