More about Hummer
Hummer was first launched in 1992 and was a civilian version of the military Humvee. The H1 was styled directly on the military vehicle, while the H2 and H3 were smaller and consumer-orientated. Hummers are hard to miss due to their appearance and unique military-grade strength. Unfortunately, the viability of gas-guzzling Hummers was called into question after the financial crisis, and the brand has struggled to maintain a footing ever since.
There have been multiple failed attempts to sell the brand. However, the Hummer is set to get an electric reboot under the GMC Hummer EV brand, with a launch date set for late 2021.
