Tesla Cybertruck vs. Hummer EV – High Voltage Drag Race

December 5th, 2023

This video is a tip of the hat to modern electric vehicles. The latest chapter in the uncertain story of battery powered electric vehicles could be titled ‘Pickup Trucks’. EV cars have basically gone as far as the current technology will allow. From a performance standpoint, these quiet cruisers have surpassed expectations by leaps and bounds. Now, it’s time to test the high-performance EV pickup market. That’s what we’ll be looking at today.

The all-wheel drive prototype Tesla Cybertruck utilizes a battery powered tri-motor setup to realize 845hp and 686 lb.-ft. of torque. At a curb weight of 6,800-pounds, the Cybertruck can turn the quarter-mile in 10.8-seconds and accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.6-seconds with a top speed of 130 mph. With these impressive performance specs, it would be easy to forget that this new Tesla has 17.4-inches of ground clearance and rides on 35-inch all-terrain tires. It’s a brute and looks the part.

In the opposite lane is the Hummer EV. Tipping the scales at 9,060-pounds, the all-wheel drive Hummer EV also uses a battery powered tri-motor arrangement to generate 1,014hp and 1,095 lb.-ft. of torque. The massive Hummer EV can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5-seconds and blast through the 1320 in 11.9-seconds @ 106 mph. Top speed is projected to be 130 mph. This quiet crawler boasts 16-inches of ground clearance with 35-inch all-terrain tires standard.

The time for jaw-boning is done. Let’s get down to where the rubber meets the road.
