U.S. Army Enlists Chevrolet-Made, Hydrogen-Powered Truck

This Colorado-based patrol and reconnaissance vehicle is being dubbed the “ZH2”. The heavily modified rig is powered by a 174 horsepower electric motor that is capable of a very quiet ride while driving all four wheels. It also has a very low thermal profile when compared to an internal combustion engine.

The hydrogen fuel tanks and battery are installed in a trunk-like compartment at the rear of the vehicle and all water emissions produced can be collected and used as drinking water. This is one vehicle that seems to be well equipped for offroading with its lifted body, 37-inch tires, and an extreme off-road suspension that could make this a great asset for our military.

Do you think Chevy was a good choice for the project?
