Why are EVs like the Cadillac Lyriq and GMC Hummer so heavy?

More and more car buyers opting for electric cars over their gas counterparts is not surprising given the benefits of electric driving. Electric vehicles are cheaper to own, cheaper to fuel, better for the environment and you even get tax credits for buying them, among other benefits. However, one thing about them that could prove problematic in the future is that they are much heavier than gas-powered cars. This is especially illustrated by models such as the Cadillac Lyriq and GMC Hummer.
