Raser’s Electric Hummer H3

No one can discount the fact that sports utility vans and pickup trucks are very important. Although we could see a dramatic rise for the demands of small, more fuel efficient vehicles, SUVs and pickups are still essential for families with large number of members or for companies to carry their cargos and various equipments.  Yes, small cars save more fuel but can it carry 8 people and their luggage at once?

Nowadays with the coming of the more rigid CAFE (Corporate Average Fuel Economy) standard, a struggle to deliver fuel saving vehicles regardless of size is on constant loop. Just recently a new development from Raser Technologies has shown that the use of E-REV (Extended-Range Electric Vehicle) power-train technology could greatly benefit full-sized vehicles especially the SUVs.

The new E-REV technology has been installed and tested to the General Motors’ Hummer H3, as Hummer was rumored to wither because of the oncoming CAFE standard it was really a surprise to see this vehicle evolve onto something that could pass the very strict CAFE with flying colors. Unlike the other hybrid cars and pickup trucks that still uses an in-house combustion engine to run, the new Hummer tagged as Electric Hummer H3 is completely plug-in hybrid using E-REV technology and is solely run by electric motor. The internal combustion engine is only needed by the generator to keep the batteries in charged state thereby extending the range that the vehicle could take.

When the batteries run out of charge the generator is also responsible for the supply of electric power to the traction motor.

A 278 HP (200 KW) Symetron AC inductor directly propelled the Electric Hummer and the generator is directly connected to H3’s 4-cylinder engine and immediately recharges the battery when it goes beyond the 40 mile range. Since the combustion engine is only needed for battery charging a 1-2 liter engine will be use to replace the usual V8 of Hammer H3.

According to Raser Technologies, the new Hummer H3 can drive up to 400 miles and although this is far lesser than the average speed of some high powered sedans it’s still worth noting that something like this could support the never ending need for bigger capacity, more powerful vehicles. Hummer is by all means big and spacious with its sturdy and masculine body that can withstand high terrain and rough roads. This vehicle is very useful and could figuratively take you anywhere in the world so it’s delighting to know that a more improved environment friendly Electric version is here to save this vehicle from ….
