US Army Truck of the Future, Chevrolet Colorado ZH2
Check out this off-road monster Chevrolet’s Colorado ZH2, a hydrogen-powered SUV for the military that could bring zero emissions to a warzone.
Unveiled at a meeting of the Association of the United States Army, the ZH2 is being tested to see how fuel-cell technology can be used for a military application.
Standing at over six feet tall and more than seven feet wide. Based off a standard Colorado truck, The whole truck has been reinforced and sits on 37-inch rubber and trick suspension that helps allows it to scale pretty much anything that falls in front of it.
It’s all camouflaged paint job means if it can’t climb over something, the ZH2 can just hide in the bushes.
There are no specs on the hydrogen fuel cell or electric motors. It is powered by one as under the bonnet there are plaits and plaits of scary-looking orange electrical wires cascading out of a silver box. There’s also a sci-fi looking box in the truck bed. That’s the Exportable Power Take-Off unit (EPTO), a fuel-cell powered battery pack that can be removed from the car to power things in locations where there are no plugs. The modular cell provides up to 25kW of continuous electricity.
