History of Hummer Car
On this day in 1983, the Pentagon awarded AM General Corporation a production contract valued at more than $ 1 billion for the development of 55,000 high mobility multi-purpose wheelers (HMMWV).
Nicknamed the Humvee and designed to transport troops and cargo, the large and robust vehicles were brought to light when they were used by the United States Army during the invasion of Panama and the Persian Gulf War in 1989. At the beginning of the decade of 1990.
In 1992, a civilian version of the Humvee, known as Hummer, went on sale. The road warrior, imposing and striking, tipped the scales at around 10,000 pounds and got less than 10 miles per gallon. It was an early success with Hollywood celebrities such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, who continued to own a fleet of Hummers.
In December 1999, when the economy was strong and gas prices were relatively low, General Motors purchased the rights of AM General to market and distribute the Hummer. In 2002, the Hummer H2 debuted, a smaller version (approximately 8,600 pounds) cheaper than the original model.
The Hummer has become a symbol of the super-large lifestyle of the United States; However, the vehicle that consumes energy has also been the target of virulent criticism from environmentalists.
According to a report in 2008 at Salon.com in August 2003, “Hummer-hate eco-vandals [hit] four car dealers in the San Gabriel Valley, in southern California, destruction, damage, and burning of dozens of Hummers and other SUVs like ‘Fat, Lazy Americans’ on the scene.”
In 2005, the Hummer H3 was launched, an even smaller vehicle (5,800 pounds) and more fuel efficient (16 to 20 miles per gallon). The following year, GM finished production of the original Hummer due to weak sales. In 2008, when Americans faced a growing economic crisis and rising gasoline prices, as well as growing environmental concerns, Hummer sales were reduced by more than 50 percent.
In December 2008, GM hit hard by the global recession and the collapse of car sales, received a multimillion-dollar federal bailout to stay afloat. On June 1, 2009, the automotive giant, which until 2008 was the world’s best-selling automobile and truck manufacturer, filed an application for protection under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Law.
The next day, GM announced that, as part of its reorganization plans, it would sell the Hummer brand to a Chinese machinery company.
