Hummer vs. reality.

 

General Motors Corp. will cease production at four truck plants in North America and possibly sell its Hummer division, components of a major shift away from gas-guzzling trucks and SUVs toward more fuel-efficient vehicles.

The company will add third shifts at factories in Oakland County’s Orion Township and Lordstown, Ohio, which make popular Chevy and Pontiac car models. It also will build a new small car in Lordstown, what it calls the next generation of the Chevy Aveo.

The company also will consider a complete revamp or even sale of the Hummer division, it said, in a “strategic assessment” of the brand.
