GMC Hummer EV “Watts to Freedom” Mode Will Leave Owners Asking WTF
GMC is celebrating the Fourth of July by offering up a new video of its Hummer EV pickup showing off its “Watts to Freedom” mode. Watts to Freedom = WTF, see what they did there? The mode is essentially a launch mode that channels all of the horsepower and torque from its three electric motors for maximum acceleration.
When WTF mode is activated, the 9,000 pound Hummer EV pickup can reach 60 mph in about three seconds. GMC says the mode is designed for pure straight-line fun, and the video shows the truck rocketing off the line with the mode activated. It’s quite impressive to see a massive electric vehicle such as this accelerates so fast.
That said, with an estimated 1,000 horsepower and up to 11,500 pound-foot of torque, the truck should be able to accelerate very quickly, as well as tow and carry cargo. Production of the Hummer EV will start in the fall of 2021, with deliveries coming sometime after that. For now, the performance numbers are estimates, with hard stats coming closer to launch.
