The Super Bowl yesterday featured several advertisements for electric cars. With these advertisement slots being some of the most coveted and expensive it’s clear that car manufacturers see all the momentum EVs have gained. But despite the effort, it’s obvious that these companies still don’t know how to sell electric cars.

The Hummer has always been known as THE gas guzzler. Hummers are big, loud, and burn through gas. But it looks like that’s changing with a new model set to be unveiled on May 20th. We took a look at the possibility of an electric Hummer a while ago, and while we did say it wasn’t impossible I’m still surprised to see new teasers coming from GM. Let’s take a look at the new, aptly-named Super Truck.
