...well, THINK AGAIN! Electric trucks are great for a run to the dump, but not much else. First, the weight of the battery is 3,000 lb! This is dead weight that SUBTRACTS from the tow capacity and brings the Hummer's weight up to a massive 9,400 lb. This limits the Hummer's tow capacity to 7,000 lb, not very much when you are looking at super-duty trucks.
The Hummer sports an impressive 327-mile range fully charged. Boy, you would think "No problem, I can go ANYWHERE I want" right? WRONG! That range doesn't account for towing shit, so these guys set out to find out what the Hummer's range REALLY is:
The Hummer's range started dropping immediately as it adjusted for the mileage it was actually getting, trailer in tow. He couldn't even get the Hummer to the designated charging station and had to double back. And, to add insult to injury, he had to unhook the trailer so he could BACK into the high-current charger, a process that takes about 10 min, adding 20 min to the charging time.
The Bottom Line: the 327-mile range dropped to 128 miles, almost ONE THIRD the advertised range! Plus, when the batteries got low the truck began limiting power which could have stopped him dead on a hill.
Note: this test DID NOT test cold weather conditions which would have exacerbated the issues with EVs, likely reducing the Hummer's range to less than 100 miles.
Conclusion: EV trucks ARE NOT for serious towing applications, but only for "Show and Shine" dudes.
