Looks like a better, more practical vehicle than the Cybertruck, albeit more expensive.

Practical ? You may want to look up that definition.
I like it yeah. But it’s at yo big to be considered practical

Perfectly practical and not too big for target audience, as a frequent US visitor I still gasp as the size of their SUVs, the Yukon XL is just jinormous

I had a Yukon XL as a rental for a few weeks. A big piece of sh1t, real plastic inside. Over sized engine because they can’t tune them. My previous rental was w Suzuki jimny
Still not a practical vehicle for the road
A bit of info
The 3 second 0-60 launch requires you to put it in a special Watts To Freedom mode. Yes, WTF mode. Can't remember if the 212.7 kWh battery was mentioned in the videos before. He spent a day driving it and averaged 1.1 miles/kWh (56.5 kWh/100 km).
As for charging, it's got a DC trick to help fill the battery faster. Not sure if it's been done elsewhere? "Fast-charging is available via the industry-standard CCS port. Here, an Ultium party trick comes into play. Although the powertrain and battery run at 400 V, if you connect the Hummer EV to a 350 kW DC fast charger, the battery switches from a parallel to a series configuration, allowing it to charge at 800 V." I'm no electrician, so I don't know how much of that is PR BS or real.
As for home charging, 20-100%, a 7.7kW charge takes 24 hours. 16 if you can get 11kW. They don't quote their 120V domestic sockets, but the article reckons about a week.
I'll say the same here as I say in the Rivian thread. Bring it here ffs! one of the few vehicles I'd have over a Tesla.
