So, y’all need to check this out. The Hummer HX is a thing, and it’s unlike any other Hummer model you can buy because it’s tiny. GMC released the Hummer HX Concept, and it was a serious idea that they let go. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t get behind the wheel of one today.
The Hummer HX was a wild concept
The tiny Hummer HX is unlike any other Hummer model ever released because it’s the opposite of all things Hummer. Instead of being a massive gas-guzzling SUV that had its fair share of off-roading problems, it’s tiny and electric.
As an official product of General Motors, the Hummer HX is born in America and is now available worldwide. GM introduced the first Hummer HX in 2007 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
GM was revealing this concept as a compact SUV option to compete against the Jeep Wrangler. The two-door Hummer was a body-on-frame, rear-wheel-drive SUV on its own chassis. GM didn’t have a chassis small enough for it to use at the time.
The Hummer HX sat on 35-inch tires, a Hummer grille, a built-in winch, and full underbody protection. It was equipped with an independent suspension in the front and a solid axle in the rear. There was a 3.6-liter direct injection engine with 304 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque under the hood.
The rugged interior featured lightweight helicopter seats to look good with the doors removed, had a shovel embedded in the front-passenger seat, and a flashlight and first-aid kit were in the driver’s side door. But it didn’t take off.
The MEV Electric Hummer HX
MyElectricVehicle or MEV couldn’t let the Hummer HX go to waste, so despite this concept vehicle never going to production, they won exclusive rights to the Hummer HX brand. So, they ran with it.
MEV transferred the Hummer HX concept into a slightly smaller vehicle and made it electric. This electric Hummer is available as a resort vehicle and is intended to be more like a golf cart. And these baby Hummer models are pretty cute.
The Hummer HX has two seats, the Hummer HXT has four, and the Hummer HTX Limo has up to six seats. Each model has a 100-mile range and can be plugged in to charge in multiple countries because the Hummer HX is equipped with a multi-region onboard charger. If you order a tiny electric Hummer, it will be shipped to you. You can also apply as a dealership to sell these baby Hummer models.
Is the Hummer HX returning?
The new 2022 GMC Hummer EV is finally making its debut soon, and we know there will be a few different variants. A Hummer EV SUV and Hummer Truck are being teased, but what about a two-door model?
A two-door model would compete well against the new two-door Ford Bronco and Jeep Wrangler 4xe. However, would it have the HX name if the rights to that title were sold to MEV? If it does make a comeback, it will be a lot more powerful than the golf cart version.
