No Hummers from GM after 2009

General Motors has revealed it will stop producing the Hummer range after this year.

GM has had Hummer up for sale for several months, since global sales of the 4x4 brand plunged due to fuel price increases.

It has given no specific end date for production, but has almost five months of stock in the US.

GM still hopes a buyer will acquire Hummer and take the brand forward.

GM will also be phasing out its Pontiac brand and wants to get rid of its Swedish Saab brand too. GM must complete its restructuring by June 1 to gain the US government loans it needs to avoid bankruptcy protection.

After shedding Saab, Pontiac and Hummer, GM will focus on its Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick and GMC brands.
