GM Shows Off New Fuel-Cell Truck Platform

GM Shows Off New Fuel-Cell Truck Platform”

GM will show the truck, which is known as the Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure (SURUS), at the fall meeting of the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) from October 9 to 11. The commercially designed platform could be adapted for military use.

GM has unveiled a new fuel-cell platform specifically created to be a flexible chassis that can serve both commercial and military needs for a versatile zero-emissions truck.

The vehicle also uses four-wheel steering, advanced propulsion power electronics, GM truck chassis components, and an advanced suspension. Benefits include quiet and odor-free operation, off-road mobility, field configuration, instantaneous high torque, exportable power generation, water generation and quick refueling times. The Army is now testing a hydrogen-powered Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck known as the ZH2, and is in discussions with GM to evaluate SURUS in the future. It has been developed to handle large payloads over longer distances. The SURUS platform is equally well-suited for adaptation to military environments where users can take advantage of flexible energy resources, field configurability and improved logistical characteristics. The idea is to use it and reduce needed manpower in risky situations by using the platform's built-in autonomous driving systems. And the fuel cell will also work as a mobile generator, outputting high voltage AC, DC, or 120V AC in addition to sending power to the vehicle's lithium-ion batteries.

GM will continue testing the SURUS truck through the spring of 2018.

Since April 2017, the Army has been testing the commercial Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 on its US bases to determine the viability of hydrogen-powered vehicles in military mission tactical environments.
