What is the expected battery life on the hummer EV?
What will that cost to replace?
5-7 years from now the batteries are going to need service or replacement…I would guess.
I would think that’s going to cost ALOT!
I just heard an end of battery life story of a Tesla and a $20,000 battery replacement!
Got me thinking of what we might be in for in the future!

The Battery in the Hummer EV will last for 10 years or more with mild degradation, a replacement battery will cost $20-30K, depending on technology at that time, but remember the old battery still has value at end of vehicle life. Can be sold for stationary storage, or recycling. Hummer EV has an 8 year battery warranty, so it will easily last beyond that.

I have not put that much mileage on all my cars combined in my lifetime yet!
And I started driving in 1978!
You must live in a relatively urban/walkable municipality or maybe you just don’t like driving. I have had my license since 1984 and am sure I am over a million miles. Driving is therapeutic for me mentally. I always volunteer to be the driver in a traveling group and will frequently go on a recreational drive to nowhere. The views/curves/elevation changes here in the Appalachian Mountains are always worth it.

Big Oil has enjoyed all of these miles on my forever car...many have shared a spot next to her, but she has been reliable and still a joy to drive...and surpringly not that expensive to maintain with only one major service in 18 years (head gaskets & valve job).

You must not do much driving. You are a used car salesmans unbelievable wild tale or "grandma never driving this car"
I drive easily 20-25k a year & ive been driving illegally since 1975, legally since 1977 so no doubt i have driven a million miles plus some.

Mam, i had to go through the BS of joining this discussion after i read your question. Seriously if you dont know what you're buying into & your knowledge of such comes from nay sayers or other people who haven't read up on EV's for decades but still will answer you with false information, then i encourage you not to buy because unless you dont mind wasting $100,000 you should really learn to ask more difficult
Questions Chevy doesn't want you to ask,
But will gladly answer the easy ones. Had you followed the first Tesla you would know that batteries come in "packs" and are built to last life of vehicle & under warranty for 8 years where they devrade 10% ---thats hella better than an iPhone. If you actually do destroy the battery by sayyyy accidently putting a stick of dynamite under your car, the pack will cost $20k. PerTesla. GM says $20-30K in other words 30k but are quick to point out the warranty is for 8-10 years and thay after that time the battery drops 10% efficiency but your iPhone battery will be dead ass dead & phone in a museum by then. Your EV wont. Its still work with hardly any notice.
its important to note: in 10 years time GM & Tesla expect the cost of the pack to go down in 10 years time, in fact it may be obsolete & more likely in 10 years your EV battery will be more like 2-3,000 dollars and charge faster , live longer, and hold 4x the energy meaning you'll be looking at battery range nearing 1,000 miles

That's one way to welcome yourself to the forums I guess...

You can however educate without having an attitude.

Slight correction for you, however, it's GMC not Chevy. ;)
