(Detroit Free Press, 7/10/17)
The U.S. Army has begun testing an extreme off-road version of the Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck powered by a hydrogen fuel cell.
The military and General Motors collaborated to develop the Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 fuel cell electric truck, which could pave the way for a stealthy new mode of military transportation.
Although its tricked-out design is conceptual and would likely not grace the final product, the Colorado ZH2 boasts a silent hydrogen fuel cell powertrain that could give American soldiers an edge in war zones.
The Army is testing the vehicle for noise, detectability, torque, fuel economy and water vapor discharge.
