Charging at Walmart

It is complicated how I got this photo, but has anyone heard about Hummer EVs in East Tennessee? There are some GREAT trails here, like WindRock, but not for wide 9000 pound vehicles.

Just figured out it was the Walmart closest to my house here in Knoxville and I knew nothing about it 馃が. This screenshot is from Google street view.

If they are in your area keep an eye out for them, they are likely not just passing through.... Check the local hotels...

I wonder if they would talk to us enthusiasts about them... Or if they have a Non Disclosure and have to stay tight lipped... I think that it would be awesome if someone here on the forum could catch up and get some type of interview with the testers...

From some videos on You-Tube it seems the engineers have some allowability to talk about the trucks, or show off certain features, but likely not in too much detail. I doubt they will give any valuable information though, certainly not going to discuss details not publicly known. I would love to spy on their charging session, and see what the charging curve is like. GM has said it will peak at 800v 350 kW, but how long can it hold that charge rate. I am hoping it is like E-Tron can can hold the peak rate from 0-75%, that really helps to have a flat charging curve on road trips.
I stalked a few hotels near where they were charging at with no luck. I would like to get a size comparison picture with my Rubicon.

GM testing teams usually use Comfort Suites, or something like that, off the beaten path to attract less attention with their parked cars. Are there any in your area?

Geez seeing these shots make the wait so difficult. Quick q, why do all of these test mules lack the body molding?

Easy answer $$$$ They are not going to put parts on that are not critical to the testing they are conducting (These are mostly powertrain, structure and suspension test mules), another answer is that the production manufacturing for those parts may not be ready when these prototypes were built. Later prototypes will be more and more complete.

These trucks we see will all be recycled when the test program is complete...
