Hummer H1 details:
Originally launched in the civilian sphere in 1992, the Hummer H1 owes its birth to the popularity of pictures from Operation Desert Storm and the enthusiastic campaign from actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who personally owns several variants of Hummer cars. GM announced that 2006 would be the last model year for the Hummer H1 with production winding down in June 2006, thanks to a new emission laws for Diesel motor cars which take effect in 2007. No version of the Hummer H1 ever manufactured would meet these new standards. AM Basic currently has orders for an excess of 50000, new Hmmwvs to be manufactured between 2006-2009 for the US Military. AM Basic also will continue to produce the Hummer H1, just not the Alpha. These cars will be sold via Fleet sales. The next Hummer H1 will most-likely bear a refined version of the prior 6. 5L Turbo Diesel motor, but that has not been confirmed. Selling the Hummer H1's via fleet sales will enable the AM Basic to not be subjected to the new emission rules and regulations. AM Basic has sufficient fleet orders to produce 600-800 units per year right now.
The Hummer H1 has three common variants: a convertible-like soft top, a 4-door hard top pickup truck and a Wagon body version. Other less known variants include a two-door pickup truck and a 4-door slantback. At this time, the convertible/soft top and the station wagon versions are the only ones available in the mass sphere. The two door and four door pickup versions are only available in fleet livery.
