Mini Electric Hummer Golf Cart minimizes the Hummer's greatest faults

It’s been over a year since the last Hummer rolled off the production line , ending the gas-guzzling era of the oversized and intimidating vehicle. Now, in a production more ironic than Congressman Anthony Weiner actually showing off his wiener, General Motors has unveiled an electric golf cart version of a Hummer for all of those men in plaid pants that want to display their machismo on the course. The MEV Hummer HX is now on sale for a bargain price - when compared to a full size Hummer - of $16,000.

The MEV Hummer HX electric golf cart was named after the HX concept revealed by GM in 2008. It is powered by a 3.75hp electric motor, but a $1,475 5.5hp electric motor is also available as an upgrade.

The model comes standard with upholstery embroidered with the H2 name, a custom floor kit, polished chrome wheels, side rails, a rear license plate, a painted front grille, H2 logos on the sides and rear, a HUMMER stamped rear bumper, and an H2 body kit licensed by General Motors. The HX MEV can also be ordered in a 6 passenger limo version for $3,874 or an 8 passenger version for $4,974.

This Golf cart is far different from the existing golf carts in the golf courses. The stronger stance and reduced space for equipments can be observed.

Now it’s better than the Hummer. The size of a golf car fits perfectly. I notice that in order to have their target size, they cut the back space of the cart.

For now, the mentioned amendments are more than okay. Nevertheless, we can’t stay static forever.

I agree. They should not stop until they find a way to completely remove the flaws.

Why should they need to minimize them only? Why can they not eliminate them fully?

I’m pleased that most of its qualities don’t conflict with each other.

Isn’t that cool then? It has become more efficient.

It looks like a life-size toy car, but it has better improvements for a simple golf cart. This is very efficient being an electrical even if it’s not a roadster.

I hope that this will be available in my country. It will be a big help because of its fuel efficiency. Although it has that feature, it didn’t affect its performance negatively. In fact, the result is otherwise.

This one is so cool!! Now the fuel can be saved but the energy is about to increase. This is a great idea for every Golf Cart providers.

Are they actually serious in bringing this one out in the market? I find it rather silly, but at the same time very amusing. Hope to see this one soon out in the open.

Hey, this one actually looks interesting. Maybe they would come up with miniature versions of other cars. Though you might find it odd seeing folks riding these when ever you head to the tee park.

Well, if they are indeed doing that, it seems to be rather futile. For goodness’ sake, the Hummer is already dead, so there is really no need to tell everyone else about that.

I would agree that this one is actually very cute, but I also find it pretty pointless. I mean, why poke fun on something that is not there anymore? It really wouldn’t work.

It seems that they are actually poking fun at Hummer with this one. If you think of it, the brand’s main thrust is its size, which is somewhat being played around by this one.

Yes we can say that this Hummer is a true power saver but don’t you think that its a little bit odd for a Hummer that is well-known in huge type of cars, then switching to a golf cart? what’s that?

Wow, ain’t this one very cute. This one is definitely for those folks who would want to own a Hummer but who are sane enough to realize that that giant is a gas guzzler.

So what now! Does Mini think that having a electric car version for the Hummer is a great solution for being a gas guzzler of the original concept? Well, I don’t think so, they just make things worst! Heck! electric cars are unreliable and I bet later on after purchasing one, the next problem would be

"WHERE TO CHARGE?"

This is awesome! Now the gas and car insurance won’t be a factor anymore! smiley
