According to GMSA, which will build the H3 at its manufacturing facility in Port Elizabeth, interest in the vehicle has grown to such an extent that the first two months planned supply is already committed.
South African H3 production for global consumption and export kicks off in the middle of 2006 in left hand drive. From early 2007 GMSA will start production of right hand drive Hummers too.
GMSA says that the benefit of local production should translate into a "substantial pricing advantage" over the vehicles largely imported competition.
Local distribution outlets for Hummer H3 will be rolled out during 2007 to cover all major centres in South Africa and is seen as an integral part of GMSA?s premium brand strategy.
