Oshkosh Defense unveiled Tuesday an electric-hybrid version of its vehicle that’s replaced many military Humvees.
Named the eJLTV, which stands for electric Joint Light Tactical Vehicle, it offers the U.S. Army and Marine Corps the same level of performance and protection as the conventional JLTV, according to Oshkosh. The new vehicle adds a silent-drive mode, extended fuel economy, and increased exportable power capability.
The electric hybrid, still a prototype, can run in silent mode on battery power for up to 30 minutes. It gets more than 20% better fuel mileage than the conventional JLTV.
