Australian Army launches electric-powered Bushmaster ePMV

The Australian Army presents the powered Bushmaster electric Protected Military Vehicle (ePMV) aka ‘Bushmaster green’. This innovation makes a combat vehicle silent and environmentally friendly.



At the launch, Australian Assistant Secretary of Defence Hon Matt Thistlethwaite MP said the ePMV was essential to the Australian Army’s efforts to be “Future Ready”. “We have seen great success with Australian designed and built vehicles that keep personnel safe under fire, and the new ePMV represents the next innovative stage in that tradition,” he said.

In addition, ePMV brings the benefits of electric vehicles to the battlefield, especially being quieter than fuel-burning vehicles. ePMV is on display at the Chief of Army Symposium, a three-day event (9-11 August 2022) bringing together technology, industry partnerships and Australian-led innovation. This symposium provides Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel and industry partners with the opportunity to get hands-on with the latest technology to support the Army of tomorrow.

Various research results and innovations in the defence industry were presented at this symposium held in Adelaide.
