HUMMER on verge of extinction

HUMMER on verge of extinction

Hummer H3 12

General Motors is moving full steam ahead on its hopeful sale of HUMMER, hoping to make a decision on the SUV marque “as quickly as practical.”

Shortly after appointing Jim Taylor to the head of the brand, the automaker has contacted interested parties with a full sales prospectus. Recent sales of the oversize trucks have been very slow, posting massive declines this year in the states. GM has too many other problems so it comes as little surprise that its anxious to get the former military-spec brand off its books.

Though GM claims it is not necessarily committed to selling the marque, they have few other options. An entire revamp of the HUMMER line would use up precious resources that would surely be better spent on more fuel efficient, forward thinking products like the Chevy Volt. In any case, there should be an announcement soon about the future (if any) of the HUMMER brand.
