Have you been secretly lusting for a Hummer? Here is your last chance. GM is definitely shutting Hummer down. The remaining inventory of 2,200 Hummers will go on a big fire sale.
According to Automotive News [sub] “GM is shutting down its Hummer SUV brand for good, taking the last of its four discarded U.S. brands off the market.”
After the deal to sell Hummer to China’s Tengzhong had fallen through, GM said they would entertain other offers. Apparently, there was nothing of interest. Now, GM decided to close the brand, Hummer spokesman Nick Richards said. Hummer CEO Jim Taylor has retired, effective immediately. Hummer’s 153 dealers were told yesterday.
To clear out the remaining 2,200 new Hummers in stock, buyers of the last of the dinosaurs can get 0 percent financing for 72 months or cash on the monstrous hoods. There will be $4,000 off 2010 H3s and H3Ts, $5,000 off 2009 H3Ts and $6,000 on 2009 H2s or H3s.
Beijing was never enthralled with the idea of one of theirs owning Hummer. But the message went over GM’s head.
