There’s a reason Chevrolet wants to show off the Colorado ZH2. Though it may be just for the U.S. Army at current, technology and engineering found in the Colorado ZH2 could very well make its way to a future production vehicle.
Chevrolet brought the Colorado ZH2 to the 2016 SEMA Show to make its public debut, also using the time to gauge consumer interest on the project.
In the video above, Charlie Freese, Executive Director of Global Fuel Cell Business, does an in-depth walkthrough of the Colorado ZH2, pointing out the truck’s careful engineering to help solve problems current vehicles have on the battlefield. These include its Exportable Power Take-Off unit, or EPTO.
This allows the Colorado ZH2 to draw high-voltage D/C from the fuel cell and convert it to both high- and low-voltage A/C (240V or 120V). The EPTO unit delivers 25 kW continuously or up to 50 kW peak. That means where there is no electricity, the Colorado ZH2 provides.
