Happily the deal fell through, and GM is now in the process of winding down production of the most anti-social ‘car’ ever known.
Some factoids about the soon-to-be-deceased Hummer (stats for the H2 model):
- Around 10mpg (imperial), (source)
- A drag coefficient similar to a small truck
- The only vehicle that I know of that has a website dedicated to making rude gestures at it
- Weighs nearly four metric tonnes (giving a kinetic energy guaranteed to destroy most things that come in its way, including pedestrians, drivers of normal cars, etc.)
The first nail in the SUVs coffin. Goodbye Hummer.
