(By Tom Lohnes) – GMC and its Hummer EV Pickup truck seem to be attracting a fair bit of attention, and to gain a little more, they’re entering a highly modified Hummer EV into a new sport called Extreme E.
You would be correct to say Extreme E is a series of extreme stunts performed by Electric vehicles, and this trophy truck Hummer looks up to the task. With over 1100 horsepower from three electric motors, 4WD, and that front light-bar from the normal one, the things shared between the Hummer and the Trophy Truck end here.
With its high-performance air suspension swapped out for extreme-travel shocks, a gutted interior, and just about the most aggressive off-road tire I’ve ever seen on anything, this Hummer is ready to race. I can’t wait to see where this sport goes, and if it’ll go mainstream like Formula E is starting to do right now. Hopefully roaring, monster V8 trophy trucks don’t get replaced by these silent dune-killers, but I would love to see the two compete in the same league.
You can’t buy the trophy truck, but prices for the standard Hummer EV range between $79,999 and $116,500.
