Environment friendly vehicles
are now making inroads into the war zone. The physically imposing Chevrolet
Colorado ZH2, the most extreme off-road-capable fuel-cell-powered electric
vehicle ever from General Motors, was revealed recently at the fall meeting of
the Association of the United States Army (AUSA).
Standing more than 6½ feet
tall and more than seven feet wide, the Colorado ZH2 was built on a stretched
midsize pickup chassis. Reinforced inside and out, the ZH2 rides on 37-inch tyre
and a specially modified suspension that helps the vehicle climb over and
descend all manner of terrain.
The U.S. Army will test the
Colorado ZH2 in extreme field conditions next year to determine the viability
of hydrogen-powered vehicles on military missions.
The Colorado ZH2 features an
Exportable Power Take-Off unit (EPTO) that allows the fuel cell to power
activity away from the vehicle, such as remote locations where electric power
may otherwise be unavailable.
GM and the U.S. Army Tank
Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) collaborated
to develop the Colorado ZH2 from contract to concept in less than a year.
GM is leveraging a range of
advanced technologies for multiple applications, including military.
