Elio Motors to build efficient three-wheeler in old Hummer plant

US automotive start-up Elio Motors will build its quirky, fuel-efficient, three-wheel car from 2014 in a plant that was once home to the hulking Hummer H3 SUV.

2007 Hummer H3 Review

2007 Hummer H3 First Steer   “If you thought GM’s Hummer H3 was the king of Bling and nothing more – you’d be dead wrong. What this thing can do off road, is downright scary” My old man’s authentic 1942 WW2 Jeep has always been my off-road hero. Many a Sunday afternoon was spent duelling with hard-core beach buggies on Sydney’s once busy Dee Why sand dunes...

2008 Hummer H3 Specifications

Love it or hate it, the all-new Hummer H3 has finally made its way to Australia. You might have seen a few private-import Hummer H2s going around, but starting this week GM will begin sales of the new, smaller and more civilised HUMMER H3. When we say, GM will begin sales, it's a bit of an understatement, the company has already taken over 400 pre-launch orders since the car's preview at the Brisbane Motor Show earlier this year...

2007 Hummer H3 Australian Launch

We finally have official word of the Hummer H3. When we had the opportunity to sit inside the H3 at the Brisbane International Motorshow, we were more than disappointed. The interior felt less spacious than a Lotus Elise, while the plastic trim put the final nail in the coffin...

2008 Hummer H3 Alpha

GM has blessed Australian with the Hummer H2/H3. The H2 is the more hardcore of the two (even though half the car is still plastic). The H3 on the other hand is actually affordable, and given the Hummer badging and image, there has been quite some interest in the car...

Hummer H3 coming to Australia

Oh No. Thats what I thought when I read the news from Holden today. Oh god no.. we don't need any more hummers in Australia, we already have enough problems with SUVs. Nevertheless, when there is a market, there is a supplier and I can think of a lot of Australians who would be running to the dealers after reading this trying to get their name on the "I am inadequote so I need a hummer" list...
