GM's fuel cell truck is ready for the next natural disaster

GM Surus Truck Chassis

You can charge the batteries, or use SURUS as a generator.

In what's something of a throwback to the GM Autonomy concept of 2002, GM has revealed another hydrogen fuel cell platform that's effectively flat and can accept just about any body.

The Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure can be used with a cab attached to house a driver, or it can be used as simply platform to carry cargo on its own.

GM announced SURUS on Tuesday as part of its plans to introduce 20 all-electric passenger vehicles by 2023.

Video Shows Utah Officer Fatally Shoot Fled Man
Officers pulled Harmon over the night of August 13 for riding a bicycle without a tail light, according to the Guardian . The officers revealed to him he would have been captured, yet Harmon "catapulted and kept running".

GM designed SURUS to be the basis for several commercial vehicle solutions that use a single propulsion system integrated into a common chassis. It is driven by two electric motors and features four-wheel steering.

SURUS is powered by GM's latest hydrogen fuel cell system. Some of the major benefits of SURUS are its, off-road mobility, zero emissions, instantaneous torque, exportable power generation, water generation and quick refueling times.

Something like this could be useful in disaster zones or in conflicts, the automaker said.

At least one SURUS configuration includes a cab, but it's meant to be capable of fully autonomous driving. Much of that is due to the electric powertrain, which produces less noise than a diesel engine. The platform could also be used by the military. Although the technical specifications released thus far are not comprehensive, GM says that SURUS will store enough H2 for more than 400 miles (643km) of range.
