The 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 had brilliant approach and departure angles, allowing it to climb over obstacles and up hills which would stop most off-roaders 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 Wagon" version.

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.
