Army Reveals Fleet of Hydrogen-Powered Vehicles from GM
On Wednesday, the U.S. Army, Pacific, debuted its new fleet of 16 hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles from General Motors. GM claims that it is the world's first fleet of fuel cell vehicles for military use. The Army as well as the other branches of the military will evaluate the fuel cell vehicles in real-world use. The vehicles most likely won't see combat.
"Operating these vehicles will provide the military with the necessary data and experience to determine future applications of fuel cell technology," said Charles Freese, GM executive director of Global Fuel Cell Activities, in a press release.
The hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles are paid for by the Army Tank Automotive Research Development Engineering Center (TARDEC), Office of Naval Research and Air Force Research Laboratories (ONR) and Air Force Research Laboratories (AFRL).
