DETROIT - Bob Lutz, GM vice chairman, global product development, unveiled a prototype right-hand-drive H3 during the opening ceremony of a new HUMMER facility in Manchester, UK. “HUMMER’s iconic design and unparalleled off-road capabilities appeal to a wide audience globally. We are determined to build upon the brand’s unique recognition in Europe and especially here in the UK,” said Lutz.
The right-hand-drive HUMMER H3 will be assembled at GM’s Struandale plant in Port Elizabeth in South Africa, where GM invested more than $100 million to prepare for production of the H3. The South African-built H3 will be available in other right-hand-drive markets, such as Australia, Japan, and the UK.
