GM Fuel Efficient Hybrid Military Truck

General Motors Corporation is hoping to help the U. S. Army move to the next plateau of energy efficiency and less dependence on petroleum-base fuel powered vehicles with the introduction and hopeful sale of tactical vehicles powered with fuel cell auxiliary power units. The advantages of these units are numerous and include a more cost efficient unit to operate and their heat output in the field makes them less likely to be picked out by the enemy’s heat sensors.
