The Complete History of HUMMER Cars. A brand that has been dead for 5 years

Logo Hummer

Hummer is a truck and SUV brand that was first sold in 1992 by AM General when they started selling civilian versions of the M998 Humvee model.

In 1998, General Motors purchased the brand and sold three vehicle models: the original Hummer H1, which was based on the Humvee, the Hummer H2 and the Hummer H3 which was based on GM's vehicle platform models.

The viability of the brand's business has been evaluated by GM management since 2008. The brand was not transferred to the Motors Liquidation Company when GM went bankrupt in 2009. GM itself plans to sell the brand.

China's auto company Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery Company said in 2009 that it would take the Hummer brand, pending the Chinese government's approval.

However, these Chinese companies eventually canceled their bids after they did not get approval from the government.

According to Reuters, the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China rejected this agreement on February 24, 2010.

In late February 2010, General Motors announced that they would eventually close the brand. Two days later, GM announced again that they had received a new offer after negotiations with Sichuan Tengzhong would not be completed.

In April 2010, sales of Hummer finally stopped and Hummer dealers began to close. After meeting a large number of car rental companies' demands, the last Hummer H3 finally came out of the Shreveport factory on May 24, 2010.
