Analysts ask: Isn't it time for GM to sell Hummer?

The Hummer brand could be sold in the near future and if it is, analysts say the buyer won't be a familiar one but instead might come from Russia, India or China.

Yeah, but who would want it? I can't imagine with gas prices and efficiency being the main focus right now, that Hummer sales even happen. So who would want to buy a brand that is not selling, and probably won't sell anytime soon?

I heard that even though noone here will buy hummers b/c of gas prices that it is still making GM a lot of money from international sales

I think GM should keep Hummer.

It's already a pretty integrated brand, and with the H3T and H4 (or HX) coming out, they have some nice fresh product.
Sure they have to address a gas mileage issue, but honestly - who doesn't?

Some of the new diesels GM is coming out with would work out nicely for Hummer IMO.

Yeah, Hummer was originally a diesel only, then when GM bought it, they changed it to gas. I think it should go back. Diesel is well-known for heavy duty, and Hummer should go back to that, instead of soccer-mom usage. Instead of Hummer going from niche vehicle to blending in with main stream, it should move back to niche again. That's just my opinion.
