EV startup Canoo has delivered its new Light Tactical Vehicle (LTV) to the US Army for analysis and demonstration.
Canoo says the electric LTV is engineered for extreme environments and includes stealth configurations. It incorporates carbon Kevlar for strength without added weight and is designed for passenger ergonomics and battery safety.
Canoo’s LTV has a proprietary all-wheel drive system that provides up to 600 hp of power. To meet the demands of off-road environments, it incorporates air springs, a raised suspension and 32-inch all-terrain tires.
According to the company, the new LTV can be converted from a pickup to a flatbed truck, a cargo vehicle and more. It can easily carry standard-sized plywood, construction and oversized materials, as well as tactical equipment or attachments for required missions.
Canoo’s proprietary modular attachment system enables the LTV to have mission-specific configurations. Flatbed walls can quickly be exchanged for many other types of mounts, including racks, ramps, storage boxes, tents or tactical systems.
“The LTV is another milestone proving the power of our technology and how it can be used, even in tactical situations,” said Tony Aquila, Chairman & CEO at Canoo.
