Good ol' GM. As the anti-SUV backlash continues to grow, Hummer has started building the H3 in South Africa for export to new markets, including the UK. And from next year, they will be making it in right-hand drive.
The H3 is the smallest Hummer – around the same size as most larger European SUVs. It is powered by a 3.7-litre, 241bhp five-cylinder engine, connected to a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic gearbox.
However, to make a real impression on the European market, it will need a diesel engine. GM is said to be considering an Isuzu unit. Either way, construction of the right-hand-drive Hummer starts at Port Elizabeth in the second half of next year.
The H3 is expected to cost around £30,000. It will most likely be sold from a handful of new, bespoke dealers in the UK.
