The Arquus 'Scarabee' military vehicle was unveiled by the Volvo-owned venture and aims to provide special forces with the power they need to complete missions. Shown off at the 2019 Paris Air Show, the light armored vehicle is positioned to join the French Army in the next decade and boasts an efficient operation that includes an internal combustion engine as well as an electric motor. This enables the vehicle to operate in fully-electric mode when being used during stealth missions or on extended reconnoissance jobs.
The Arquus 'Scarabee' military vehicle features a four-wheel turning radius that enables it to turn with extreme agility to navigate tight areas with ease. The unit is capable of being airlifted and deployed from a Chinook helicopter or C-130 plane.
