|New FED Bravo Fuel Efficient ground vehicle was displayed at Society Automotive Engineers 2012|
This week the United States Army debuted its latest concept vehicle FED Bravo that not only significantly improves upon fuel economy, it also has the capability to generate and export electric power to Soldiers in austere locations like Afghanistan.
The United States Army debuted its latest concept vehicle, the Fuel Efficient ground vehicle Demonstrator, or FED Bravo, to the public at the Society of Automotive Engineers 2012 World Congress in Detroit, Mich., April 24-26, 2012.
Following the grand opening of the arsenal's high-tech lab last week, the Fuel Efficient ground vehicle Demonstrator (Bravo version), or FED Bravo, was displayed to the public at the Society of Automotive Engineers 2012 World Congress, April 24-26. The FED Alpha concept vehicle shown to the public last fall was fuel-efficient, but could not export power like the Bravo version.
True to the Society of Automotive Engineers 2012 theme, "Get Connected," the Army collaborated with students at the College for Creative Studies, or CCS, in Detroit to design the concept vehicle. CCS has a thriving, highly respected automotive design program to feed the styling studios of the Big Three auto manufacturers, Ford, General Motors and Chrysler. A group of 18 CCS students designed FED Bravo to meet specific Army requirements for fuel economy, performance, protection, payload and interior layout.
