2006 Hummer H3 in Paris
28th July, 2005
General Motorsí Hummer Division this month continues its global expansion with the sale of the all-new 2006 Hummer H3 in Europe. The Hummer H2 is currently sold in 33 countries around the world.
"Hummer has global appeal. European customers have already demonstrated a high level of acceptance of the Hummer H2 due to its unparalleled off-road capabilities and iconic design," said Susan Docherty, general manager of Hummer who oversees the brand in the U.S. and abroad. "We expect the H3 to make the Hummer brand even more approachable and accessible to a wider array of European consumers.Ē
Initially the H3 for Europe will be offered in a U.S. built left-hand-drive configuration with a Vortec 3.5L inline five-cylinder engine, rated at 164 kW. As part of Hummerís growth plan, a global version of the H3 with added features and content aimed at markets outside North America will go into production in GMís plant in Struandale, South Africa in late-2006. Those models will later offer both right-hand drive and an optional diesel engine.
Australian release is expected in early 2007.
