First right-hand-drive Hummer goes on sale in UK
1 October 2007

Hummer has released its first right-hand drive vehicle in the UK market. The H3 is designed to alter the US company's reputation for producing huge, gas-guzzling 4x4s for footballers, and in GM's words to "appeal to a truly global audience".For that reason the H3 is no bigger than a Land Rover Discovery and is available from only £26,495.However, the biofuel and diesel engines intended to improve Hummer's appeal outside America won't arrive for another three years.For now, you'll have to put up with a 3.7-litre five-cylinder inline engine that produces 244bhp, 242lb ft of torque and consumes petrol at an environmentally disastrous 20.4mpg. Just to make sure that the UK has understood the H3's real-world potential, the press release comes with a list of celebrity owners including David Beckham, Wayne Rooney and Arnold Schwarzenegger.And to clarify the direction GM plans for its premium SUV company, the first UK-spec H3 was wheeled out dressed in its own toy box, because it's "the ultimate boy's toy". No mixed messages from Hummer, then.
