General Motors is expected to announce the sale of its Hummer brand later today.
The move follows the company's move into Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, and is expected to be among the first announcements made during its first day of bankruptcy court proceedings.
Although there is no word on the potential buyer, US newspaper The Wall Street Journal is reporting that GM will continue producing H2 and H3 trucks and SUVs for the buyer at its Louisiana and Indiana plants.
Buyers for two other GM brands - Saturn and Saab - are also being sought, although deals are said to be further off. GM has already announced it is closing down its Pontiac brand.
