Muy Bueno on the vid! Def very nice to see non GM people driving the EV1, hence getting closer people. I only understand a little Spanish, but he could have said the truck totally sucks and I still cant wait to get my delivery of this super truck! For a first EV Super Truck, this has everything and more that I would use it for. Stereo wise, I think added 10" or 12" subs under the back seat may be in order. I know I will miss having a nice low rumble non-obnoxious exhaust sound, but def curious with not having it, will effect the road, tire noise etc.. I am just hoping they added sound dampening. C'mon GM lets get these order banks open, lets make it media event to promote these bad boys who are eagerly being awaited by so many customers!

Nice to see cruise control at 70-75mph hopefully we can get close to the 350 miles while doing those speeds. Def not expecting to be doing 55 everywhere just to get good range. I-5 speed limit is 70 anyway so I feel like that should be the “efficiency range of mph” and what highway miles should be based on!

Not likely... I expect Hummer range with 2 people at 70 mph to be 290 miles and at 80 mph 230 miles, bad aerodynamics get much worse with speed, it's not linear. Not to mention the HummerEV rolling resistance with this tires, awful...

The HummerEV will be a very expensive road trip vehicle charging on EA, likely costing far more than a diesel, unless diesel price continue the craziness.

Tom dont be getting all technical about, weight, aerodynamics, and putting a damper on my Sunday Football Day... :) But I do know that alot of Towns are putting in EV stations that are free and dont cost anything. ( For now of course and are prob not fast chargers). For those that stay local and planning occasional longer road trips, the EV1 is a viable option. The other question, is what does the availability fast charge stations for the EV1 look like? How many? Costs? etc. Tom I must say I sold my Raptor in anticipation for the EV1, but you have me looking at big boy Diesel's now.

Haha, I think setting realistic expectations are important to satisfaction in football and BEV range.
