2,000 Miles of Hybrid System Evaluation on ‘Hotbuck’ Unit

BAE Systems reports completion of 2,000 miles of tests of the hybrid electric driveline for the U.S. Army’s Ground Combat Vehicle on its “Hotbuck” rig in Santa Clara, Calif. The tests indicate that a hybrid GCV will have greater agility, acceleration and maneuverability than a comparable mechanical system, and that the hybrid vehicle will use up to 20% less fuel than a conventionally powered GCV.
