First-ever Electric Hummer H1 Revealed

What better way to say that you’re concerned about the environment than a 3 tonne Electric Hummer powered by polar bear friendly electricity.

Built by an Austrian start-up called Kriesel Electric, for none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger. The actor had previously hired Kreisel Electric to swap-out his Mercedes-Benz G-class’ internal combustion engine with an electric powertrain. “Kreisel Electric electrified my G-class last winter. And now a Hummer. If Kreisel keeps it up at this pace, I will soon be able to fly here from LA in an electric aeroplane,” said Schwarzenegger.

It is equipped with high-performance batteries from Kreisel Electric with 100 kWh capacity and two electric motors on the front and back axles, a system output of 490hp. The vehicle, which weighs 3,300kg, can achieve speeds of up to 120kph and has a range of about 300km.
