WASHINGTON — The U.S. Army has picked six companies that will develop ways to power electric vehicles in austere, remote locations, according to an April 22 Army Futures Command statement.

The effort will support the Army’s Next-Generation Combat Vehicle (NGCV) modernization effort and the Ground Vehicles Systems Center — in collaboration with the Army Applications Laboratory and Alion Science and Technology — as the service tries to tackle how to power a future fleet of roughly 225,000 electric vehicles while operating out in the field where infrastructure for such capability would likely not exist.
