AUSA 2016: GM & TARDEC Unveil Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle

At GM’s AUSA booth #2939, the company reveals its next-generation Chevrolet Colorado-based hydrogen fuel cell vehicle that is being developed with the US Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC). This vehicle will undergo extreme mission testing by the Army in 2017.

As compared to traditional gasoline or diesel engine vehicles, there are extreme advantages for fuel cell propulsion vehicles, according to GM, that include:

  • Quiet operation
  • Exportable power
  • Fresh and pure water production
  • High wheel torque for off-road handling
  • Refuelling in less than five minutes
  • Low fuel consumption at idle
