The first version which was available for civilians was built by AM General and started marketing to the general public in 1992. It was at the insistence of Arnold Schwarzenegger that AM General first started building it and making it available to the public. In 1999, AM General sold the brand name to General Motors and has been under the company since.
As demand for stretch limousines increased, especially for use in weddings, proms and bachelor parties, many different models of cars were converted by enthusiasts and professionals. The hummer was a natural attraction to be a great candidate as a stretch limousine because of its aura of invincibility, its grandeur and class.
As the demand was there, people started converting Hummers to Hummer Limousine. These conversions almost always start with a brand new Hummer vehicle purchased from the factory. A number of modifications then follow to convert it to a stretch limo.
The first step is to enhance the braking system to accommodate the extra size and weight of the limousine. Oversized front brake pads rear braking cylinders are used to accomplish this. Heavy-duty springs are also installed to carry the extra weight of the vehicle.
The vehicle is then cut in half using quality laser guided systems at state of the art factories. This cutting process is so precise and the body parts are locked in place so there is no flexing or moving that could jeopardize the process.
The chassis is then extended and strengthened. This adds length to the vehicle and ensure for a smooth and quite ride. In addition to this, heavy-duty isolators are usually added to limit vibration that may be caused by the new length of the vehicle. Electrical connectors are then used to extend all the wires and electrical connections. They are insulated to protect them from humidity and temperature extremes, especially in cold places such as Toronto. The drive shaft is assembled and balanced to ensure a smooth comfortable ride.
The structure of the vehicle is finalized and the interior is then primed to add rust protection and to prepare for the installation of the roof and side panels.
High strength aluminum is used to build the divider assembly, the section which separates the chauffeur from the passengers. An automatic glass panel similar to that used in power windows is installed to allow the driver to control the separator panel.
Once the roof and side panels are installed, it is time to start the interior building process. The hummer H2 limousine is known for its luxury interior that includes many elegant features such as leather seating, hard wood floors and multiple mini-bars. These features are added according to the client’s specifications.
