Officials from the American military say U.S. forces plan to implement hybrid-electric vehicles into their ground fleets as soon as possible. According to a recent climate plan by the U.S.
military, the service plans to deploy tactical hybrid vehicles in the field within 13 years, and the ultimate goal is to have only fully chargeable electric vehicles by 2050.
Ground Vehicle Systems Center (GVSC) prioritizes vehicle electrification as one of its four major objectives. According to breakingdefense.com, As a result of adopting the evolving technology, military costs will be reduced (according to estimates, this is about a 20% reduction) and tactical performance will improve.
Among the advantages of this technology is a power-based silent motor, which allows the vehicle to carry out tasks quietly. Additionally, vehicles that do not require fuel can be more durable and have better mobility due to the availability of electricity.

However, despite advancements in the field, military experts argue that battery capabilities need to be improved and battery size reduced in order to make the most of the technology. It will also be necessary to develop an electric vehicle charging system and to equip the vehicles with portable generators.
