Re: General Motors South Africa May 2008 Sales

^^ I didn't know there was a HUMMER plant there. BMW also builds a lot of its right-hand drive vehicles there. It's sound like production of HUMMERs for South Africa just started a few months ago.
Hummer SA starts rolling


10 October 2006 General Motors began the first production outside the United States of the Hummer H3 sports utility vehicle at a plant in Port Elizabeth, South Africa on Tuesday.
GM said it expected eventually to produce more than 10 000 units of the H3, the newest and smallest model in the Hummer range, for export to Europe, the Middle East and Asia under a US$3-billion contract awarded to its South African subsidiary in April 2005.
Production of a right-hand drive version, for export into right-hand markets in Europe and Asia as well as for local sale, will begin at GMSA's Struandale, Port Elizabeth plant in the second quarter of 2007.
"The GM team in South Africa has demonstrated to the world that they have the people, the leadership, the technology and the skills to execute the type of automobile engineering and assembly that is required in the new global economy," Maureen Kempston Darkes, president of GM Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, said in a statement on Tuesday
