Power. On The Move.

Oshkosh Defense® ProPulse® hybrid Diesel-Electric System with Export Power.

Designed for the performance demands of heavy-duty vehicle applications, the Oshkosh® ProPulse® hybrid diesel-electric system dramatically improves fuel economy up to 20 percent and serves as an on-board generator with enough output to power an entire airfield or hospital. Already proven effective on the Oshkosh HEMTT A3 and MTVR, ProPulse technology uses a modular series-hybrid arrangement to simplify the transmission of power to the wheels. It enables significant fuel economy because of a tailored engine control strategy. And life-cycle costs are dramatically reduced because the full electric system lowers torque throughout the drivetrain and regenerative braking increases brake life.

  • Diesel engine powers a large electric generator which distributes power to each axle module
  • Each axle module is driven independently by a dedicated motor controlled from its own power converter, thus providing redundancy
  • Allows for more compact, lighter weight vehicle design
  • On-board generator can deliver up to 120 kW of AC power for external operations
