Building a fuel cell pickup for battle

At the 2017 Washington Auto Show, General Motors and the U.S. Army showed off the Colorado ZH2: a fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) prototype based on the Chevrolet Colorado mid-sized pickup truck platform that runs on electricity generated by a hydrogen-powered fuel cell.

It'll undergo battlefield testing at Fort Carson, CO, this June and at Fort Bragg, NC, in August. Key battlefield benefits expected from this truck include low noise and limited 'thermal signature,' plus low-end torque and ability to 'export power' much like a generator.
