Hummer finally gets some interest

Hummer finally gets some interest

Hummer H3T fq

As unbelievable as it may seem someone actually wants to buy the struggling Hummer brand. In fact, AM General, the company that created the original HMMWV for American troops back in 1983 is rumoured to be in the mix of bidders, joining forces with China’s Hunan Changfeng Motor Co. Changfeng has been interested in the American brand since GM first put Hummer up on the auction block, but it wanted a bidding partner. It appears that Changfeng found one shortly after touring the automaker’s facilities a few months back.

It was AM General that first launched the Hummer marque in America before selling marketing rights for the brand to General Motors in 1999. Even with a Chinese partner, rumours indicate that Hummer would remain an American off-road brand that’s marketed mainly towards the United States.
