In the United States, nearly half of the population is overweight. And we can imagine that this also applies to the American fleet. After all, that largely consists of oversized pick-ups and SUVs, such as the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Suburban, next to which a full-size Range Rover looks like a Toyota Aygo.
If we look at an average European car - a Volkswagen Polo or Golf for example - then it weighs between 1000 and 1500 kilos. A Range Rover exceeds that with more than 2300 kilos and such an American Chevrolet Suburban comes out at more than 2700 kilos.
But we are not there yet. The all-new GMC Hummer EV - a massive electric pickup, due to be released later this year - beats all the cars on the market by a truly absurd weight. If you put it on the weighbridge, you will fall backwards when you see the result: 4103 kilos!
This is partly due to its size - it is 5.5 meters long, 2.2 meters wide and 2.0 meters high - but mainly due to its battery, which is 200 kWh. In comparison, a Porsche Taycan Turbo comes to 93.4 kWh and a Ford Mustang Mach-E to 98.7 kWh. With its impressive battery pack, the GMC Hummer EV goes about 560 kilometers.
Three electric motors with a combined power of 1014 hp and 15,592 Nm (!) Torque provide the drive. The heavy-duty pick-up thus goes from a standstill to 96 km / h (60 mph) in 3 seconds. The launch control system is called insufferably American: Watts to Freedom.
