U.S. Army looks to Canoo for electric Light Tactical Vehicle

Canoo has delivered its new Light Tactical Vehicle (LTV) to the United States Army for analysis and Demonstration in fulfillment of a contract awarded in July 2022.

Canoo says the LTV is engineered for extreme environments and includes stealth configurations. Designed to be durable with a focus on passenger and battery safety, the LTV incorporates carbon kevlar for strength without the added weight. The LTV is also designed for passenger ergonomics, taking body motion and height into consideration as well as multi-task components.

The LTV can be converted from a pickup to a flatbed truck or a cargo vehicle. With a convertible flatbed platform, the LTV can carry standard-sized plywood, construction and oversized materials, as well as tactical equipment or attachments.

Canoo says its proprietary modular attachment system and accessories quickly interchange the flatbed walls with many other types of mounts including racks, ramps, storage boxes, tents or tactical systems. This modular upfitting enables the LTV to have mission-specific configurations at a lower total cost investment, the company says.

Canoo vehicles are based on the company’s proprietary multi-purpose platform which integrates all the critical components of an electric powertrain, so it is as flat and efficient as possible, while maximizing cabin and cargo space.

The LTV has a proprietary all-wheel drive system with up to 600 HP. To support the increased demands of off-road environments, the LTV incorporates air-springs, a raised suspension, and 32-in. all-terrain tires to build higher ground clearance suitable for extreme or rugged conditions.

Canoo says full specifications will be revealed closer to production.
