No it is a standard door but a roll up sectional door so the frame it sits on is 79".
I understand your issue with the garage door opening. My garage door opener (motor) allowed me to adjust the door to where it is fully retracted (flat) to where there the door garage door opening is clear and the bottom of the door is pulled completely out of the way... Hope that helps but, looks like 37" tires are not possible.
If what I read is true it is 81.1" tall so won't fit in my garage!
Hi, I'm thinking we will be ok with the height and garage opening clearance issues.

I expect we will be able to lower the air suspension 2" for parking. If you look at WTF mode it lowers the stance 2". I cant believe we can not do it manually....

I think we will be able to set it in the lowered mode, that is actually the mode with the best CV joint angles, and likely the most efficient mode to drive in, but will look silly going down the road as a low rider.

Hi,
I think you missed the point on the vehicle height. The point was to be able to lower the EV1 to park inside the garage or parking structure when clearance is an issue. See full read on dimensions and another on 37" tires.

Sorry for my poor explanation, I am sure the Hummer will be able to be set in the low mode anytime the driver wants. Some cars only let you lower in parking garages because it puts the CV joints in a less optimal position and they do not want you to use power or go fast like that, but for the Hummer the lower setting makes everything more optimal drive train wise. Does that make sense?

Based on this photo, I think the 81 inches is with full extract mode. The GMC rep in the back ground was about 6 ft tall and you can see the truck is less than 1 ft taller than him.

Well hopefully the Hummer has an automatic lower setting similar to what the Corvette has where the front lift raises the front of the car using the GPS. You just tell it once and it does it everytime! Since many of the Corvette engineers have supposedly been moved to the Hummer team, this should be a no brainer. :)

I don't see why it can't be done. In WTF mode the suspension lowers 2 inches.

For the SUV so far we only know the wheelbase: 126.7". The truck is 135.6".

They will announce the dimensions sometime next week apparently.

Pretty sure this prototype is parked in the lowest suspension setting.
