GM Electric Hummer Review: $110,000 Worth of Armor, With Soft Spots

For a huge, heavy truck, it’s got serious thrust.

There may be no more polarizing vehicle than General Motors Inc.’s new Hummer EV.

The $112,595, more than 9,000-pound pickup is a gargantuan remake of the military vehicle that was tamed for civilians in the 1990s. It is 1,000 horsepower of muscled Americana with knobby tires and a ridiculous launch mode that will further inflate the diaphanous egos of those who engage it. It is as tall as a tank with a hood extending to my shoulder height. Nobody needs this truck.
