Hummer shuts down all production

Hummer shuts down all production

The long and troubled trip that has been the Hummer brand is just about to come to an end for General Motors. The final ever production H3 rolled out of GM’s Shreveport, Louisiana, U.S.A factory last Monday on its way to an American Avis rental car outlet. Hummer H3s had actually ceased production half way through last year as the brand faced bankruptcy, but it resumed production recently to fill an 849 unit special order fo Avis.

GM tried to offload the Hummer brand to Chinese company Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machines Co, but sadly the deal fell through. Now that production has ended, 200 Hummer employees are to be laid off with the rest of the Hummer staff either leaving or being reassigned.
