    Yes, actually they just unveiled their first diesel-electric hybrid Clandestine Extended Range Vehicle (CERV) recently.  The military is taking steps to transition national defense out of fossil fuels. The CERV can get up to 80 mph, climb grades of 60% and do all of this using 25% less fuel than similiar vehicles.

    The CERV made its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit last year. The idea is to achieve the high performance required by reconnaissance and surveillance missions while increasing fuel efficiency, so while the CERV can crank up to 80 mph and climb grades of 60%, it uses about 25% less fuel than a similar vehicle. The vehicle was developed by the Army’s Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center in partnership with
