Who are Hummer?
Hummer wouldn’t be around if it weren’t for the Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger. According to legend, he saw the non-civilian Humvee or “High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle” and immediately knew he wanted one of his own. His persistent requests for a civilian model paid off, and the first Hummer was born in 1992. He eventually developed a fleet of up to seven Hummers for his own use, including some that run on alternative fuels.
A Hummer vehicle was once seen as a US status symbol, but the brand was eventually closed down by General Motors in 2010.
In a world of environmentally friendly electric and hybrid vehicles, the gas-powered Hummer is more likely to be seen as a novelty stretch limo than on the streets as a consumer car.

Can I cut the cost of my Hummer insurance?
Checking the value of your vehicle and its annual mileage is also a good idea – it could help to reduce your costs if you’re driving a lower value car with lower mileage.
You might want to increase your voluntary excess. This can lower the cost of your premium, but be sure you can afford to pay the excess if you have an accident.
