Arnold Schwarzenegger Unveils All-Electric Hummer H1 Prototype
September 21, 2017  Kennedy Paul


Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzeneggers love affair with the Hummer seems not
over yet despite the fact that the gas-guzzling Hummer has been
discontinued. Schwarzenegger along with Kreisel Electric unveiled an
all-electric Hummer prototype along the lines of the inauguration of the
companys new R&D facility.

Kreisel Electric, a small Austria-based startup for converting internal
combustion vehicle to electric, earlier this year built a custom
all-electric Mercedes G-Class for Schwarzenegger, and he was present again
yesterday to unveil the electric Hummer.

  "Kreisel Electric electrified my G-class last winter. And now a Hummer. If
Kreisel keeps it up at this pace, I will soon be able to fly here from LA in
an electric airplane," said Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The all-electric Hummer H1 is a soft top prototype and is powered by
electric motor on each axle. With a capacity of 100kwh batteries, the pair
of electric motors produces 360kw (480bhp). The electric Hummer prototype
weighs 3,300kg, has a top speed of 120km/h and a range of around 300km.

But the not so good news is that Kreisel Electric is not planning to sell
the all-electric Hummer. The company says that the prototype is intended to
demonstrate the capabilities of its technology.

  "With our electrified prototypes, we want to show what is possible using
Kreisel technology, says Kreisel Electric co-founder Markus Kreisel. We will
certainly not mass-produce these models. But our Hummer is a powerhouse in
wolfs clothing, one that drives so quietly even the sheep are not

Kreisels primary business is to produce battery packs for electric vehicles
(EVs) and to showcase their technology, they made EV conversions like a VW
e-Golf with a 55kWh battery pack and $1 million classic Porsche 910 as well.

DriveSpark Thinks! The gas-guzzling Hummer was discontinued because it was
highly pollutant and the electric Hummer could have solved the issue of
pollution and many potential buyers could have benefitted. With Kreisel
Electric showcasing its potential of converting a polluting vehicle to
almost clean and green vehicle, we wish Kreisel changes its decision and
starts producing the all-electric Hummer.
