Hannah Macmurray | 03 November

If you think GM’s Hummer was totally dead think In 2008 GM Hummer debuted a car called the HX Concept . In an eleventh effort to bring Hummer’s gas days to an end GM proposed a smaller, more efficient version of its yet highly desirable ‘in face kind’ larger H2 and H3. Effectively it was too little too late, GM to sever the brand in 2009 and on trying to salvage the rest of its

After the recession hit the automotive GM was faced with many restructuring decisions and subsequently handled the dissolution of the Hummer However, just like another of GM’s brands fed to the Hummer had something that is priceless, it has the legacy of a remarkably design.

Using the same utilitarian cues but adding authentic spirit the Hummer quickly a celebrity car in its own right and in no small way to Arnold Schwarzenegger (who a Vegan version these

It was no wonder that when GM to sell off Hummer many were interested in licensing the In some countries, such as a Hummer is still a status But all bids fell through, could not be secured and in the midst of it all a company called MEV . My Electric . secured GM’s official product Hummer seal of

Not only was the of size and weight addressed but the and much criticised poor consumption eradicated. What you end up in MEV’s HX™ and HX-T™ is the of both worlds really, the fun looks of the Hummer and a relatively electric vehicle.

The world, and congested London, didn’t another Hummer but the EV culture needed the HX-T™. in the very it detracts from the eye sore is the G-Whiz.
