Hummer was pronounced dead a few months back when the deal to sell the GM brand to Sichuan Tengzhong fell through. The Hummer assembly line workers in Shreveport, Louisiana got a stay of execution when Avis ordered up 849 Hummer H3s for their rental car fleet. The last H3 of this special build rolled off the assembly line earlier this week, and the brand will now fade into the sunset of automotive history, alongside such other GM casualties as Oldsmobile, Pontiac and Saturn.
The Shreveport plant will continue to build Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon pickups (for now), but the workforce will be reduced from 900 to 700. White collar Hummer employees have either been terminated or re-assigned to other GM brands.
