General Motors Company said today that it has started production of the 2010 Hummer H3 SUV and the H3T pickup at its Shreveport, LA plant as inventory continues to drop.
Inventory “is very low,” Hummer spokesman Nick Richards told Automotive News. As of November 1, Hummer had about 1,138 vehicles in the United States.
“We’re hungry for Hummer product,” said John Sutliff, president of Sutliff Cadillac, Hummer and Saab in Mechanicsburg, Pa. His dealership currently has two 2009 H3 SUVs and six 2009 H3T pickups. Richards said that the 2010 H3 SUVs should start hitting dealerships in early December.
The halt on production “wasn’t our decision,” he said. “It was based on everything going on around” GM’s sale of Hummer to China’s Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery Co.
The 2010 Hummer H3 and the H3T are now available with a new E85 Flex Fuel 5.3L V8 engine.
