Video of the Week: Hummer EV 0-60 in 3 seconds with Watts to Freedom Launch Control

The look on your passenger’s face will be priceless when you turn your head and tilt your shades down before saying, “hold on, I’m putting the Hummer EV in WTF-mode.” That’s Watts to Freedom, in case you were wondering.

Basically, this user-selectable driving mode lowers the Hummer’s Adaptive Air Suspension two inches and delivers optimal power and torque (with ambiance provided by “unique sounds” on the Bose stereo and animations on the infotainment screen) before propelling you from 0-60 in roughly 3-seconds.

“Watts to Freedom unlocks the full potential of the propulsion system and puts all of its available power to the pavement,” said Al Oppenheiser, HUMMER EV chief engineer. “It’s an all-encompassing experience unlike anything else — purpose-built for straight-line fun.”

If you hadn’t already heard, the Hummer EV has a ludicrous amount of horsepower and torque.

“It’s an amazing demonstration of just how fast 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of electric propulsion can move you,” said Oppenheiser. “It’ll put a smile on your face every single time.”
