The GMC Hummer EV, unveiled in early April, will apparently be the heaviest electric car yet. GMC has already confirmed the reports that the electric SUV weighs in at a whopping 9,046 pounds or 4,103 kilograms.
While the new Hummer EV certainly will be posing new questions regarding weight, a heavy EV can source more power via braking than a traditional ICE, however more weight also requires more power to get rolling. Which direction this trend continues in will be interesting to note, although people purchasing a Hummer traditionally do so because they want an obnoxiously large vehicle.
