The US Army has allocated $7.3 billion to purchase 15,425 JLTVs, potentially including hybrid or electric-drive vehicles to reduce fuel consumption.

The US Army is seeking ways to improve its Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) while maintaining its affordability and has released on 9 February an RfP for a $7.3 billion follow-on contract to purchase 15,425 platforms and 7,644 JLTV trailers.

The goal is procuring a vehicle possibly featuring hybridisation or electrification to reduce fuel consumption in line with the new Climate Strategy from the US Army.

The recompete programme will comprise a single five-year requirements contract with initial deliveries scheduled to take place 18 months after the deal is awarded.
