GM Defense has already delivered its first Infantry Squad Vehicle to the US Army, but now, it’s working on an all-electric version. Called the “All Electric Concept Vehicle,” it’s powered by GM’s eCrate electric powertrain generating 200 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque from a 60-kilowatt-hour, 400-volt battery that achieves up to 150-miles on a single charge. Its petrol counterpart is powered by a 2.8L Duramax four-cylinder turbodisel making 186 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Read more for a video and additional information.
You will se a few modifications to this electric model though, most noticeably the relocation of the pickup bed to the back instead of rear seats, thus reducing seating capacity to five people instead of nine. However, both models appear to be based on the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 midsize truck architecture.

“There were no requirements to build anything of the sort. However, we wanted to show our Army customer what was possible in a short amount of time. We took it off-road at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Rock City Campground on Monday, and it performed exceptionally well and did the same course as the ISV which included a steep muddy and rocky hill climb,” said GM Defense spokesperson Sonia Taylor to Motor1.
