ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING:

HOW CAN I FIND CHARGING STATIONS IN MY LOCAL AREA?

The availability of public charging has increased substantially over the past few years. GMC HUMMER EV works with the available myGMC Mobile App with Energy Assist features (active service plan required) allows you the access to the following functionality:

  • Check Range in a Glance
  • Find Real-Time Charging Station Availability 
  • Click to Charge. This is not payment, it is the ability to start a charging session with a “click” from within Energy Assist. 
  • Plan Your Route
  • Wireless projection via Apple or Android Devices.

WHERE CAN I CHARGE AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE?

For the average commuter, the vast majority of charging happens at home (overnight, similar to your smartphones). For the times when you need to charge outside of the home, there are currently about 70,000 public charging outlets in the US and this number is growing every day.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CHARGE AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE IN GENERAL?

Charging times will vary depending on charging type and vehicle specs. There are three levels of charging:

  • AC Level 1 charging can deliver 2 to 4 miles of range per hour (at home use)
  • AC Level 2 charging can deliver 7 to 40 miles of range per hour (at home use / at work)
    • Range per hour varies depending upon the type of charger used (3kW to 19kW)
  • DC fast charging can deliver 60-100 miles of range in 10 minutes (public use)
    • Range per hour varies depending upon the type of charger used (24kW to 350kW)

WHAT TYPE OF CHARGING CORD COMES STANDARD WITH THE VEHICLE?

It will offer a dual cord set that is capable of charging either Level 1 (120v) or Level 2 (240v).

ELECTRIC VEHICLE BATTERY LIFE:

WILL THE BATTERY DETERIORATE OVER TIME, LIKE THOSE IN CELL PHONES?

Lithium-Ion batteries are designed with protective measures to ensure longevity of battery life. So unlike cellphones, the battery in your electric vehicle will enjoy a reliable useful life.

HOW DO EXTREME TEMPERATURES AFFECT THE BATTERY?

High voltage batteries are designed to safeguard against degradation due to extreme temperatures. Extreme temperatures can affect vehicle range.

WILL THE BATTERIES BE ABLE TO BE RECYCLED?

GMC batteries are expected to enjoy a long useful life, however, GMC will leverage recycling relationships to re-use and refurbish batteries for various use cases

ELECTRIC VEHICLE MYTHS:

IS IT SAFE TO DRIVE AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE IN THE RAIN?

Electric vehicles are safe to drive in the same conditions as a traditional internal combustion engines (ICEs) vehicle. There are numerous precautions built into the design and manufacturing process to protect the high voltage battery in the event of an accident. It’s also safe to charge an EV in the rain — the plug-in receptacle is equipped with numerous safety features to prevent electrical mishaps and accidental shock.

DO EVS REALLY POLLUTE LESS CONSIDERING MANUFACTURING AND OPERATING EMISSIONS?

EVs emit no direct tailpipe pollutants. Electric motors convert 75 percent of the chemical energy from the batteries to power the wheels. By comparison, internal combustion engines (ICEs) only convert 20 percent of the energy stored in gasoline. And while EV production contributes to global carbon emission, total electric car emissions are significantly lower than those from ICE vehicles.

ELECTRIC VEHICLE BENEFITS:

HOW WILL I KNOW IF AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE IS RIGHT FOR ME?

If performance, reduced environmental impact, convenience, and reduced operating costs versus conventional vehicles are important purchase factors, then electric vehicles should be at the top of your shopping list. Owning an electric vehicle has never been more compelling.

DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING TO MY HOUSE TO BE READY FOR OWNING AN EV?

In order to charge an EV, you simply need access to a household outlet (120 Volt, 3 prong). If you wish to charge at faster speeds you may consider upgrading to a Level 2 charging station. GMC is working with Qmerit to help with the process of installation at home from a qualified electrician. More information to come at a later date.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER BENEFITS OF OWNING AN EV?

EV propulsion can be nearly silent and EVs can offer attractive performance attributes (e.g.,acceleration and handling). Additionally, EVs benefit from reduced operating costs when considering energy, maintenance, and repairs. There may also be federal, state, and local EV incentives available. Finally, EV customers may benefit from HOV lane access in many parts of the country.
