Trucks brings to attention the Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure (SURUS for short), which is General Motors' hydrogen-powered electric platform with autonomous capabilities, offering a standardised chassis that can be arranged for a variety of roles.
Some of the benefits of Hydrotec include quiet and odor-free operation, high instantaneous torque and quick refueling. Like the ZH2, it is also capable of providing an exportable power source and generating water.
SURUS is designed to assist in “some of the toughest transportation challenges” such as natural disasters and global conflicts, according to GM. It will also have autonomous capabilities that could allow multiple SURUS vehicles to operate in a digitally-tethered platoon, or convoy.
