Most Indian cricketers love travelling to Sri Lanka. And it’s not just because it’s a great place to play cricket and sightseeing. There is an added attraction- especially for those who love hot wheels.


Initial Foray into RHD Conversions

Autogroup International completed its first right-hand drive conversion of a GMC Sierra pickup truck for the Australian market, which was the genesis of the business today that now boasts 200+ team members, a trusted reputation for quality and integrity, and ships vehicles to 40+ countries worldwide – all with full homologation and ISO 9001:2014 Quality Assurance.


The first right-hand drive Hummer H2

When General Motors launched the left-hand drive H2 Hummer in 2002 based upon the iconic military-inspired H1 (Humvee) model the world took notice and Autogroup International swiftly began production of the right-hand drive H2 Hummer and exported them worldwide.


The H3 Hummer enters the market

The release of the slightly smaller H3 Hummer pushed demand even higher with Autogroup International producing right-hand drive Hummer H3 and exporting hundreds throughout the United Kingdom, Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, and beyond. Many of the right-hand drive H2 and H3 Hummer’s still around today were converted by Autogroup International.

  • Engineering Excellence: The transformation begins with meticulous vehicle inspection and research, followed by the intricate design and engineering phase. Autogroup International’s team of skilled engineers specializes in various aspects of the conversion process, including mechanical, electrical, and plastics engineering, as well as reverse engineering and prototyping.
  • EV Conversion Experience: Autogroup International’s Engineering and R&D team have always led the way from the emerging Hybrid vehicles in the late 2010s and recently reinforced with the world’s first right-hand drive conversion of the Toyota Tundra Hybrid, the Ford F-150 Lighting, and now the Hummer EV SUV.
  • Quality and Compliance: Manufacturing and quality assurance are pivotal, with over 700 to 1000 newly crafted parts ensuring the integrity of each vehicle. The conversions not only meet but exceed ADR compliance and homologation standards, allowing for legal import into over 40 right-hand drive countries. This adherence to compliance is complemented by a 3-year global warranty, aligning with OEM warranties.
  • Global Reach and Customization: Autogroup International caters to a diverse clientele, shipping converted vehicles to a global market spanning over 40 countries. Customization options are vast, allowing customers to tailor their Hummer EV SUVs with innovative features like Watts to Freedom mode and Crabwalk mode, enhancing the driving experience to suit personal preferences.
