Makes complete sense when you look at the Hummer, but Hummer EV vehicle performance engineer Todd Hubbard said in an interview that GM didn't look at the competition when developing the Hummer. I respect that kind of confidence they had with their team.
“The way we approached it is that it’s more of a clean slate,” he said. “Let’s just set a target, not rely on competitors, and just make the best truck we can make.
