Hummer and Saturn to temporarily restart production

Two dead General Motors brands, Saturn and Hummer, will get their last hurrah on the automaker’s assembly line.

“We are building out a few Saturns to utilize existing material,” GM spokeswoman Kim Carpenter said. She said that GM will assemble Outlooks for a few more weeks.

The automaker made 1,037 Outlook crossovers last month after not making any Saturns in October.

A fleet company has also ordered 849 Hummer H3s and H3Ts, so the Hummer line in Shreveport, La., will restart April 12 to build the vehicles. The automaker has promised to finish the Hummer production run by May 13.

Hummer stopped production in January.
