Strong Acceleration
Even though the vehicle weighs almost 10,000 pounds, the Hummer EV’s 1,000 horsepower means this machine delivers extreme acceleration. The all-wheel-drive system provides excellent grip, so full throttle results in virtually no wheelspin on pavement. But with speeds rising so quickly, drivers will have to be on the alert since this vehicle is no sports car. The all-wheel-drive system and torque vectoring are helpful, but ultimately this EV’s significant mass doesn’t want to change direction quickly, especially at higher speeds. Physics always wins.
