FFG unveils fully hybrid Genesis vehicle

The Genesis full hybrid technology solution for 8x8 armoured vehicles was designed with a modular concept, providing a low thermal signature and silent movement.

German company Flensburger Fahrzeugbau Gesellschaft (FFG) has developed a full hybrid technology 8x8 armoured vehicle demonstrator.
