Hummer HX Concept to be launched

12 February, 2008


Hummer plans to roll out its new HX Concept car at the Geneva Auto Show in March 2008.

Hummer has brought in its exclusive design into this entry-level, open-air vehicle that packs the off-road acumen for which Hummer has become legendary into an easily convertible body, said an auto news report. The new concept vehicle comes across as a reconfigurable off-road concept vehicle.

According to the company, the HX is Hummer's trail-ready, open-air vehicle that fits the lifestyles of everyone who needs or wants to drive off road and it carries an off-road capability that's termed as exceptional .

The car has a pair of removable roof panels above the driver and front passenger, and a modular, removable rear roof assembly. As the panels get removed, the HX can be transformed into a convertible. The Hummer HX can also be configured into an SUT, a stylish slant-back or a traditional, wagon-like design that offers a bit more cargo space. One may even remove the doors. The HX is made of a sturdy, body-on-frame construction.

Round headlamps in square housings, an upright windshield profile, minimal overhangs, hood vents and prominent air intakes are the pluses. The seats take off from an aircraft-inspired design. Powered by an E85 FlexFuel 3.6L direct-injected V-6 engine, the car boasts of a six-speed automatic transmission. The advanced V6 and six-speed transmission come about as an efficient package making the concept vehicle a must try when it gets introduced.
