Right-hand-drive Hummer H3 unveiled
Detroit, Michigan – Bob Lutz, GM vice-chairman of global product development, has unveiled a prototype right-hand drive Hummer H3 during the opening ceremony of a new Hummer facility in Manchester, U.K. The new H3 will be assembled at GM’s Struandale plant in South Africa and will be available in several right-hand drive markets, including South Africa, Australia and Japan.
It will be the first time the H3 has been assembled other than in GM’s North American facility in Shreveport, Louisiana. The new international H3 is intended for most markets outside of North America; General Motors has invested more than US$100 million in preparation for production.
