General Motors is working with the US Army Tank Automotive Research, Development & Engineering Center on a hydrogen fuel cell Chevrolet Colorado that will enter Army service.
General Motors will work with the US Army to further develop hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicles as a way for the military to reduce petroleum dependency. The US automaker and the US Army Tank Automotive Research, Development & Engineering Center (TARDEC) have reached an agreement to develop, design and test fuel-cell powertrains on military vehicles for the next five years, though GM wasn't specific on how many vehicles would be develop
The biggest vehicle on the floor of the Society of Automotive Engineers World Congress in Detroit this week is the Fuel Efficient Ground Vehicle Demonstrator (FED) Bravo. As that name might suggest, yes, this is a military project. Also, the term "fuel-efficient" is relative: the FED only gets around 10 miles per gallon, depending on terrain. At the Aberdeen Proving Ground, it gets between an estimated 11.2 and 12.5 mpg. Going
The U.S. Army has ordered six hydrogen hybrid vehicles from Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, the company announced today. The press release (read it after the jump) doesn't specify what type of vehicles these are/will be, but they will be used by TARDEC, the Army's Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center. Doesn't take too much thinking to realize that if these Quantum vehicles aren't tanks, then the Army is at least looking to m
We've mentioned fuel cell manufacturer Quantum a few times recently in conjunction with their hydrogen storage systems being selected by General Motors for the fleet of fuel cell powered Equinoxes GM are building, plus via their supply of hydrogen fuel systems and storage to Ford for its Escape Hydrogen Hybrid.
