In the United States developed a hybrid low-noise armored car eJLTV

In 2015, the American company Oshkosh won the tender for the supply of a JLTV light tactical armored vehicle for the US Armed Forces, who intend to partially replace the Humvee fleet with this vehicle. At the same time, further creation of new samples of the JLTV family is underway.


Oshkosh has taken the initiative to develop a hybrid version of the technology, which, as indicated, has a quiet ride, while “retaining all the characteristics and protection” of the basic modification. The new car received the designation eJLTV.

Virtually silent electric drive enhances the eJLTV's ability to perform reconnaissance missions without being detected

- declare in the company.

Among other advantages of the new version, fuel savings of 20% are indicated. The eJLTV lithium-ion battery stores energy while the vehicle is in use and can be fully charged in 30 minutes. As explained by Oshkosh, the self-charging capability eliminates the need for additional vehicle maintenance, which could lead to poor logistics on the battlefield.

The Army plans to complete the JLTV procurement program in the basic version and award a follow-up contract in September 2022. The planned $6,5 billion agreement provides for the delivery of an additional 15 vehicles over five years, after which new options will follow. Oshkosh is betting on the new eJLTV, thanks to which they hope to win a new contract and continue deliveries to the military.

    In their desert, under each cactus, there is an outlet for auto-charging ??? Moshina may not be bad, but problems with charging in battle conditions or a long march make hybridity a minus in this case.

      A hybrid is not an electric car, there is also an internal combustion engine, read about the Toyota Prius.

        Air Force reserve lieutenant-read three times, I see an indication of the presence of a lithium-ion battery, which increases the operating time! A hybrid installation is ALWAYS combined, for ground transport it is most often an internal combustion engine, diesel, gas turbine engine and an electric motor! hi I'm not writing that this is an armored electric car, it's a trachoma with a conventional engine, a typical ugly armored car.

          Something you are confused.
          There is always a battery in a hybrid.
          The battery in a hybrid can not be recharged from the outlet from the word at all.
          However, you can use an electric motor.
          Very useful when you need to move quietly.
          Well, there is some kind of fuel economy due to recuperation, and the heavier the car, the greater the savings.


          So the hybrid is a PLUS.

          Well, if the issues of reliability, survivability, etc. are resolved.

          The only negative is that the hybrid will always be more expensive.

            Not only. The highest fuel consumption is at the moments of acceleration - the needle of the device for measuring fuel consumption in this mode goes off scale to the right, fuel consumption increases significantly due to the enrichment of the mixture.
            In a hybrid drive, the electric drive takes over the acceleration function. This significantly reduces fuel consumption and eliminates the need to drive at high speeds, reducing the overall noise of the car.

              The same savings effect can also be obtained from an energy storage flywheel.
              Recently there was a situation in the news "electric bus - frozen" - and with a gyrobus this would not be possible in a cold climate.

                This is my second year with a hybrid. The car periodically spends the night in the yard. And the frosts we have oh mom all January and a piece of December did not rise above 30, below it always please reached 45 in the red .. The car surprisingly starts with a half kick. You look down on the ordinary ones who try to start every morning.
                So this is normal for hybrids. And you don’t need a big battery to start the car, you can generally start it from a battery. What was shown to me in the service. Disconnected the terminals and started from a conventional battery.

                  The internal combustion engine starts up and it was also about the possibility of saving fuel, which is not limited to only one option with a battery - for example, the developers did not try to implement switchable cylinders.
                  In data centers, they are trying to use flywheels, not only batteries. https://www.iksmedia.ru/articles/2974544-IBP-raskruchivayut-maxovik.html

                  Flywheels at least come in a low-hazard tape version, with the possibility of delayed destruction.
                  A lithium battery provides instant cremation - when its body is broken, the discharge current will be like that of an arc metallurgical furnace, with the appropriate temperature.
                  In general, it would make sense to make both fuel tanks and batteries automatically reset in an emergency, and autonomous electrical systems - de-energized. When the body is deformed, the factory locks are opened by this deformation and dangerous units are discarded by the force of inertia with the withdrawal along the guides.

                    And the lithium battery provides instant cremation -

                    It doesn’t provide a damn thing, all the batteries in the car are stacked from 18600 or or 21700 cells or analogues and each element with protection against short circuit and overheating in a separate housing. In addition, a group of elements is controlled by the controller and it also has protection. Learn materiel.

                      And how they burn powerfully, even with such protection. Protection, apparently, does not always help. Videos of fires are gradually starting to accumulate, with the introduction of electric ships into operation.

            The only one ? How are you going to repair this fool in the war - this alone is enough to abandon this idea. What kind of noiselessness nafig? As if they were going to drive up to a pistol shot. And from half a kilometer you won’t even hear a tractor. Now you can hear a passenger car by the rustling of tires rather than by the motor.

              What is there to repair? Batteries are easy to replace.
              An electric motor is much lighter than an internal combustion engine.
              you probably never did not see a hybrid up close (at the service)

            In a hybrid, the battery is never charged from an outlet or from the engine or the spinning wheels. The electric motor is used as an additional usually small power.
            What is not too great is the presence of a large number of electronics.

      For long marches, noiselessness is optional, as in combat.
      But in reconnaissance in the immediate vicinity of the enemy, it is very useful. Moreover, the hybrid drive allows you to reduce the noise level from using the internal combustion engine as the main one.
      Batteries are just expensive.
