Hummer H1 was the civilian version of the AM General Humvee
used by the military. It was produced from 1992 to 2006.
The Hummer H1 was completely unsuited to public roads, being
excessivley wide, and horrifically uneconomical. That didn't
stop it becoming a bit of a design icon and a hit with those
wealthy enough to afford one.
It was great off-road, where it was designed to operate. It

in their tracks.
The Hummer H1 was sold in three variants; a soft top model,
a four-door hard top SUV, and later something called an "Alpha
Production of the Hummer H1 ended in 2006 due to a new emission
law for diesel engine vehicles, which took effect in 2007.
Then in 2009 the entire Hummer brand was closed after General
Motors failed to sell the brand to a Chinese company as part
of its bankruptcy settlement.
