    Three Reasons La Jolla UTC Has the Best Dining Options for Employees

    An energy-efficient Humvee? While it seems crazy, the hybrid XM1124 Humvee has been in development for a while now. Today, word came that automotive lithium-ion battery maker EnerDel has been chosen to create the vehicle's battery system. The company has received a $1.29 million contract to design and build a high-performance battery.

    EnerDel will collaborate with the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center over the next 18 months, creating four custom power systems that will be tested in extreme performance simulations.

    While the demonstration version of the Humvee XM1124 is already more efficient than the conventional M1113 Humvee, with a higher top speed, faster acceleration, longer range, and better fuel economy, the new battery should increase the peak power capability.
