    Better than sucking air into the intake I'd imagine. Cars get flooded all the time, it's not good for any car but EV battery banks are well protected from punctures and water and whatever else. Less moving parts, fewer sensors etc. I'd guess EVs probably deal with flooding better than ICE cars.

    While I would miss the sound of the v8, I would certainly be interested in an electric hummer if it had similar or better offroad performance. My biggest gripe with electrics is the range and recharging. It would be nice to be able to charge the car overnight while I sleep and have a full tank the next morning, but what about when I want to do something other than commuting? 200-300 mile range would be acceptable if there were charging stations all over and it only took a minute or two to recharge.

    What about battery-version jerry cans that I can use if I happen to need a bit more electricity to make it back to town?

    Looks like the trend by manufacturers is moving towards cross-overs, so I would be surprised if we saw any new hummers ever.

    Right now pretty much the only car that fits this is a Chevy Volt or the recently discontinued Cadillac ELR. Pure EV for the first 50 or so miles then continue to drive with a gas engine keeping the batteries charged. Unlike something like the i3 which goes into a kind of hybrid limp mode , when the Volt goes into hybrid mode you can keep driving normally.

    Electric is ok, but I'd rather see GM continue with their fuel cell SUVs. Obamacare killed that program, the week before I was to get a fuel cell Equinox for a month.

    Meh. Fuel cell was a failure before it began.

    I'm on the fence with new cars overall---love the great mileage and hey, who doesn't like a new car.

    OTH--I hate that manufacturers control updates to your vehicle which may impact performance over economy and also has access to see how/where the vehicle is driven and is gaining even more control over your ability to mod your vehicle.

    I've got two 1970 cars in the garage and love how stupid simple they are and don't feel that somebody is monitoring what that vehicle does every time I drive it. BUT........when you drive a bright ass purple 70 Dodge Challenger you can't be fooled into thinking it blends in and doesn't get noticed either! And I know there are pictures being taken every time it goes out of the garage--so much for trying not to get noticed! Everybody in this town knows this car and amazes me every time I meet some one I don't know but they know who I am.....

    I'd be interested in an offroad vehicle which was all electric, if the motors were integrated with the wheels. Imagine the torque management and traction control one could build that way. -On the other hand, I also imagine the unsprung weight would be pretty significant

    You missed the bit about GM building hydrogen Colorados? there is no way GM is doing Hummer again, they may make another SUV with the ZR2 package, but your only hope would be it would be a Hummer by GMC (or Cadillac).... it'd be a badge, not a brand. In any case, there is no chance they build it.

    This looks pretty cool. Also, here is a link to a video that talks about the history of the Hummer brand and possible future.

    Video is only what he thinks, what he likes, what his opinions are. GM will really listen to them....NOT! But good for a life during a blizzard.

    Don't know anything about Hummers, but I do speak Malamute.

    At one time there was an H3 converted by some company that claimed it was the future.
    Yes, and GM turned them away due to their limited production numbers and the fact they wanted GM to make some expensive modifications to the engine compartment and GM said NOPE. Due to limited volume it would have cost way too much and that was right around the time GM was sitting on zero dollars and headed into the courts to declare bankruptcy.
    They had on in Moab for a car show one year.
    Some great idea, but again, wrong time, wrong vehicle.

    Looks like the Hummer brand is making a return.

    The article says GM has hired Labron James to do a commercial for the Super Bowl next month. It will be an all electric truck sold at GMC dealerships and marketed to off-road enthusiasts.

    Well, I guess the devil is wearing ice skates and pigs are racking up frequent flier miles. I never thought it would happen.
