HUMMERs and Humvees aren't just two different plants, they're two different vehicles altogether. HUMMER mostly shares the look of the Humvee, not the engineering, hence why AM General was willing to sell the rights to civilian production to GM.

What's going on is this: like most third world countries, China glorifies gas-guzzling ego cars like no others (not even Americans come close, though the Arabs probably have the Chinese beat by a wide margin). That's why Geely (or was it Chery) invested money in ripping off a Rolls rather than making a better daily driver. Good riddance to it, HUMMER is a brand hated by a broad segment of the country.

The more specification or needs in a vehicles, there will be more need for higher volume to get scale advantage.

GM attempts to reduce number of brands might. be precursor to such an attempt.


This is a watcher!

Maybe it creates new standards for the basic model in the Amerikan car market.

Will there be more additional features as the standard model car allowable on the roads in the USA?

ha ha ha

In the past cars were so simple.

But the Basic model has improved by leaps and bounds probably requiring bigger volumes to sell well at the market acceptable prices.
Cars are now so much safer, with so much cleaner emissions, better handling of road, weather conditions.

among the improvements seen in the car could be...
(1) Electronic injection,
(2) Computer controlled engine, fuel richness, engine cooling etc.
(3) Emission control standards.
(4) ABS, or other such braking safety systems
(5) New additional basic accessories
(6) All disc braking system or something better.
(7) Power steering or such.....

and i don't know what more additional features can be added on.
(8) More smart control on wipers etc....
(9) New smartkey, car security system....

and still sell at the same price equal to  6 month's wages!!!!


That could increase barriers to the market.

ha ha ha

It would have a drastic effect on the global industry...

...as all the producers from Japan, Korea, Germany to France, Italy, Spain exports to the United States.

and it become barrier to export for smaller scale nations.


ha ha ha


Suspect, such strategy going to be pursued.

Well the AMERIKAN REGIME is putting up more barrier to prevent entry into the industry!

Look at the top 10 auto makers, almost 80% of the global production.
With recognizable brand names.

Look at the top 11 makers with 90% of the global market. 45 million units of the 50 million unit sales.

Toyota        = 9 million
GM              = 8.3 million
VW              = 6.3 million
Ford            = 5.5 million
Hyundai     = 4.5 million
Nissan       = 3.2 million
Renault      = 2.4 million
Fiat              = 2.15 million
Chrysler     = 1.5 milion
BMW           = 1.5 million  (only produce more expensive cars)
Mercedes  = 1.0 million  (same as BMW)

Japan, Korea, France, Italy, Germany and USA has cornered the entire market.

This leaves only CHINA and MALAYA with the remaining 5 million or so car production.


It's an interesting and BIG JOB to change equation of the business!
Only CHINA can do it!

Italy, France and Korea is in trouble from new Amerikan game!

There are the MODEL for China as these companies start to CROSS SHARE the platforms and use ECONOMY OF SCALE common GIANT AUTOPART MAKERS with IN HOUSE R&D capable of making very competitive parts for Chinese automotive industry.

Brand name building must now start with auto companies in Bohai, Pearl, Yangtze, and commercial, truck pick up in Sichuan.
and of course quality cars with lots of accessories, components to challenge.
