Picture this: It’s June 1st, 2009 and General Motors is announcing their bankruptcy following the start of the great recession in the United States. One of the multiple brands they decide to discontinue as part of the announcement is Hummer. Green energy and electric vehicle advocates worldwide jump for joy at the news.
