GM's view of hydrogen fuel cells: great for military use

Andrew Ganz

General Motors thinks there's a future for hydrogen fuel cells, but it's not in your driveway.

Unless you're a member of the armed forces and your driveway is, say, Fort Bliss.

The Detroit automaker is and the U.S. Army are collaborating on a modular experimental light- and medium-duty fuel-cell truck platform with a name so military that it could have come from a Tom Clancy book: Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure, or SURUS.

GM presented the nearly silent-running, zero harmful emissions SURUS to the Army on Monday. Next week, the SURUS concept will be on display at the Association of the U.S. Army's fall meeting in Washington, D.C.
