A Hummer a Treehugger Can Love

Meet the tiny electric Hummer HX. It's perfect for getting around a beach resort. Off-roading in Panama? Probably not.


The Hummer is back! Well, sort of. General Motors ceased production of the H1, H2, and H3 SUVs in 2010, but it still licenses out the trademark. And the electric car company MEV has borrowed it to make the Hummer HX. It looks like a Power Wheels toy and, indeed, is intended as an on-site ride for resorts (it only gets 60-100 miles per charge).

There's something deeply satisfying to me about seeing that infamous Hummer grille on an electric car that's about the size of a large riding lawnmower.
