Hummer heads back into production

Hummer heads back into production

Hummer H3

The Hummer sale isn’t officially official just yet which means the Chinese authorities haven’t given Tengzhong the green light. What is official is that GM has restarted production of the 2010 H3 and H3T at its Los Angeles plant. General Motors didn’t want to be stuck with dead models, so it shut down production while its side of the deal with Tengzhong was being finalised. But by the beginning of November, inventory was very low with just 1,183 units on hand and action was required.

Hummer sales remain down more than 50 percent but people are still buying, and the company’s two H3 models are clearly the most popular. According to a Hummer spokesman the 2010 H3s should be arriving in dealerships in December — and they may come in two new colours and with biofuel capability.
