In May, HUMMER was the only automaker in Russia to post a month-over-month sales gain, according to Automotive News.
HUMMER sales rose 111.5% while all other automakers posted a double digit decline. During the first five months of the year HUMMER sales were up 85.6%, compared to a 47% average drop in sales among all automakers.
While HUMMERs don’t account for a very large portion of Russia’s overall vehicle consumption, increased demand for HUMMERs is a great thing. International sales are a vital part of HUMMER’s long-term viability, and will play an important role in the design and timeline of future HUMMER models.
