The American says that he connected the Hummer electric car to the home electrical network on Sunday morning. At that time, the battery was 49% charged and the on-board computer calculated that the car would be fully charged by Friday evening. That is, it would take 5 days to charge an electric car by 51%, and a full charge from 20% to 100% took more than a week.

The battery of the GMC Hummer EV is very large (212 kWh) and the charging speed was only 1 kWh. This is due to the fact that in the United States, the Hummer electric car was charged from a 120-volt electrical network. From a 220 or 380 volt outlet, the speed will be twice as high, but even if it reaches 3 kWh, it will still take 2 days and 8 hours.
Therefore, owners of Hummer and other electric cars with large batteries are advised to immediately install a special 11 or 22 kWh charger in the house. In this case, charging will take 20 and 10 hours, respectively.
Focus previously said that the taillights on the GMC Hummer EV cost like a new BMW motorcycle.
