  • Sunday 11th October 2020

The Hummer SUVs need no introduction! While the good old Hummers are not available in the market anymore, you will hardly find an enthusiast who does not know about the Hummer SUVs. The big bad Ameican SUV that is used by the USA Army all over the world was primarily built for the armed forces. However, later civilian versions were launched too. Three-generations of the Hummer made it to the market. The first one was launched in 1992 while it was discontinued in 2009. While Hummer never entered the Indian market officially, there are a handful of imported models here. A few of these are owned by celebrities.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni

The former Indian cricket team captain is a major automobile enthusiast and owns India’s only Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk. Dhoni has a massive number of cars and motorcycles in his garage. He also owns the Hummer H2, which he takes out on the roads quite often. A picture of him driving the Hummer while players of New Zealand team watched him in awe went viral a few years ago.

Harbhajan Singh
