Hummer H2/H3: Inspired by enthusiasm for civilian versions of the Hummer military vehicles, General Motors transformed its large Chevy Tahoe SUV into the garish, chrome-decked Hummer H2. A smaller Chevy truck later became the basis for the Hummer H3. GM's Hummer franchise collapsed in the financial crisis and GM's subsequent bankruptcy. GM is now looking at reviving the name for an electric truck.

BMW i3: The i3 is a small city car that BMW used as a test bed for extensive use of carbon fiber body construction and battery electric propulsion. The car's pod-like design separates it from the sleek looks of conventional BMWs like the 3 Series, and so do the i3's relatively modest sales.
