The Hummer is a brand of large SUVs and trucks that was originally developed by AM General, a military vehicle manufacturer. The first Hummer, the Hummer H1, was based on the military’s Humvee and was introduced to the public in 1992. The Hummer H1 was followed by the smaller H2 and H3 models, which were based on civilian truck platforms and were introduced in 2002 and 2005, respectively.
The Hummer brand was associated with ruggedness and off-road capability, and the vehicles were popular with consumers who wanted a vehicle that could handle tough terrain and inclement weather. However, the Hummer’s size and fuel consumption made it a controversial choice for everyday driving, and the brand faced criticism for its environmental impact.
In 2010, General Motors (GM) announced that it was discontinuing the Hummer brand due to low sales and the negative perception of large SUVs. However, in 2021, the brand was relaunched by Chinese automaker Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machines as the Hummer EV, an all-electric pickup truck. The new Hummer EV has received positive reviews for its impressive performance and off-road capabilities, but it remains to be seen if it will be able to recapture the popularity of the original Hummer brand.
