GM Defense, a subsidiary of General Motors Co., has been selected to develop a battery pack prototype for testing and analysis on Department of Defense platforms.
The company will leverage GM's battery technology to create a scalable design for the Defense Innovation Unit that can be used for tactical military vehicles, the company said Thursday.
The Defense Innovation Unit is an organization under the Department of Defense that accelerates the adoption of commercial technology across the U.S. military.
GM's most advanced battery technology, the Ultium Platform, is a combined electric-vehicle battery architecture and propulsion system that can deliver power, range and scale, it said.
