    Tengzheng has a chance to succeed with Hummer if they are smart. How to do that?
    Tengzheng should make deal with Raser Technologies and accelerate proccess in releasing “green” hummer by using Raser E-REV power train. They already spent about two years in development specifically for Hummer. There is no better option to consider, and get results in a very short time.
