Hummer is back! It is the Electric Hummer

General Motors have recently announced their new Hummer, bringing it back to life after the H3. This time, GM created the Hummer purely electric, and you may presume the driving range would be around 10km, I think everyone has the same concern.

Hummers are notoriously heavy, slow, and unreliable due to their electric power train, with the H1 being the exception. I know I sound slightly negative, but Hummers do not have a good reputation.

According to GM, Hummers are capable of delivering 1000 hp and 15,000 Nm of torque. I think this was a typo! Neither the drivetrain nor the tyres will be able to cope with this amount of torque and stress. The range is approximately 560km but turning on the Hummers front light could reduce the range to 50 km. They appear hilariously energy-consuming for an electric SUV and will feature two or three electric motors with 350 kW charge speed.

In my opinion, it will be fun to see an electric Hummer. Maybe this time GM will produce a Hummer that will not fall apart like the previous ones. We will see!

Hummer H1 Rolls Over

I don’t like to post funny videos from YouTube but some of them are really interesting. They should be shown to people for teaching, what not to do with their vehicles!

This person will be remember for decades! Thanks to his achievement to roll over a three-tonne Hummer H1 only by his hand.

Weekend Videos: Hummer H2

For weekend I chose Hummer H2’s video. After watching the video, you will see problems of H2’s drive train and glad that we don’t have it any more :) One explanation for this problem; heavy weight and weak material.

Sakis’s Hummer

I was thinking are there any video clips which were taken in Europe and placing a Hummer! Usually Hummer is mostly preferred by the American Rappers, they love to song with their 42inch wheels and flashy interior with 2467873 LCD screens with unidentified exterior colour. This is very usual and nobody would be shocked to a Hummer in those kinds of video clip.
However I watched a video clip and I was shocked by seeing a Hummer H2. Not H1; the petrol eater, usual, inefficient, pointlessly big, ugly, plastic H2. But it becomes more surprising, the video clip is from Greek singer Sakis Rouvas. I was not expecting to see Sakis inside a Hummer H2, what was the producer thinking while placing a Hummer in a video clip! There is one explanation for this, they wanted to get bankrupted very quickly. That machine is eaten petrol like nothing else on planet! Even if you used an Airbus A380 double deck air plane, it would be cheaper than Hummer H2 :)
Hopefully that’s an old video clip and there is no more Hummer brand exists :) Sakis next time try to drive something better like a Range Rover or Mercedes G Class or Toyota LandCruiser not a petrol eater ugly machine :)

And my creation for the lyrics:

I am guessing the lyrics of the song. I bought this Hummer, I don’t know how to fill it up, I decided to make a song for it, may be someone will listen it, then I can fill up my Hummer. I bought this Hummer, I can’t find place to park it, so I drove to mountain but I run out petrol. I bought this Hummer, I wrote this song for it.  
Technical note: Hummer H2 has an inefficient 6,2lt engine which produces only 393 horse powers. Germans are producing 510 horse powers from the same engine with better consumption.
Translation by Google Translate:

Σκεφτόμουν υπάρχουν τα βίντεο κλιπ που ελήφθησαν στην Ευρώπη και την τοποθέτηση ενός Hummer! Συνήθως Hummer είναι ως επί το πλείστον προτιμάται από την αμερικανική Ράπερ, αγαπούν το τραγούδι με 42inch τροχούς τους και φανταχτερός εσωτερικό με 2467873 LCD οθόνες με αγνώστων στοιχείων εξωτερικό χρώμα. Αυτό είναι πολύ συνηθισμένο και κανείς δεν θα είναι συγκλονισμένη με Hummer σε αυτά τα είδη των βίντεο κλιπ.
Ωστόσο Είδα ένα βίντεο κλιπ και σοκαρίστηκα βλέποντας ένα Hummer H2. Δεν Η1? Ο τρώγων βενζίνης, συνήθως, αναποτελεσματικές, άσκοπα μεγάλο, άσχημο, πλαστικό Η2. Αλλά γίνεται όλο και πιο περίεργο, το βίντεο κλιπ από την ελληνική τραγουδιστής Σάκης Ρουβάς. Δεν περίμενα να δω τον Σάκη μέσα σε ένα Hummer H2, ποια ήταν η παραγωγός σκέψης ενώ δίνει Hummer σε ένα video clip! Υπάρχει μια εξήγηση για αυτό, ήθελαν να πάρουν χρεοκοπήσει πολύ γρήγορα. Η εν λόγω μηχανή τρώγεται βενζίνη τίποτα άλλο δεν ήθελα στον πλανήτη! Ακόμα και αν έχετε χρησιμοποιήσει ένα αεροσκάφος Airbus A380 διπλό αεροπλάνο κατάστρωμα, θα είναι φθηνότερο από Hummer H2:)
Ας ελπίσουμε ότι αυτό είναι ένα παλιό βίντεο κλιπ και δεν υπάρχει πλέον μάρκας Hummer υπάρχει:) Σάκης επόμενη φορά που προσπαθείτε να οδηγήσετε κάτι καλύτερο σαν ένα Range Rover ή Mercedes G Class ή Toyota Landcruiser δεν τρώγων βενζίνη άσχημο μηχάνημα:)

Και της δημιουργίας μου για τους στίχους:
Είμαι μαντέψουν τους στίχους του τραγουδιού. Αγόρασα αυτό το Hummer, δεν ξέρω πώς να το γεμίσει, αποφάσισα να κάνω ένα τραγούδι γι ‘αυτό, μπορεί να είναι κάποιος θα το ακούσει, τότε μπορώ να γεμίσουν Hummer μου. Αγόρασα αυτό το Hummer, δεν μπορώ να βρω μέρος για να το πάρκο, γι ‘αυτό οδήγησε στο βουνό, αλλά εγώ τρέχω έξω βενζίνη. Αγόρασα αυτό το Hummer, έγραψα αυτό το τραγούδι για αυτό.

Τεχνική παρατήρηση: Hummer H2 είναι αναποτελεσματικός 6,2 lt κινητήρα, η οποία παράγει μόνο 393 ίπποι. Γερμανοί παράγουν 510 ίπποι από τον ίδιο κινητήρα με την καλύτερη κατανάλωση.

Bye bye Hummer

World’s the most unforgetable vehicle was placed itself in automotive history. The huge, heavy, big, inefficient, symbol of being rich and lack of taste will be shut down. Hummer was one of the most sensational vehicle, many people loved it many people hated it but it always caught attention; may be that the secret of Hummer! Many car companies are trying to do by very different way but Hummer did not struggle to achieve this. Actually that’s the only achievement Hummer has achieved.
When it was first loved my Arnold and he wanted to drive it daily, those day he was not interested on environment. Then, every block buster action movie placed a Hummer, people who won lotto bought one. Despite its lack of quality, lack of everything, it was a symbol. And this high demand to Hummer ignitiated the more civilized model H2. It was powered by a ridiculious petrol powered engine with Chevrolet Sububran strucutre. It made a huge impact when the petrol was something cheap and it was not considered as a symbol of wealth. Meantime, many car manufacturers introduced SUV models and competition became tough and Hummer’s ability on sand was not helping to defeat the competitors.
Later on, GM introduced H3 model to survive the brand but it was from last century and offering nothing special. Then petrol price started to increase and increase and Hummer’s hunger for petrol became more significant. People was no longer looking forward to buy a Hummer and changed their preference but the only one who has not changed the preference was the GM. And they tried to sell Hummer to Chinese, it was looking fine. However some rumours started and finally it was announced that nobody on earth wants to buy Hummer and GM will shut down the brand. We will miss the Hummer, it was nice piece of entertainment for automotive world.
