ElectromobilityThe power
of change

Real change comes from taking a stand when others are only making noise. Real change comes from taking positive action, not screaming and shouting for others to do it. Some of the world’s greatest changes have been made without making a sound. It won’t be any different this time. We are committed to building the world we want to live in, a world where progress is made in a sustainable, efficient and peaceful way.

It’s time for a quiet revolution.
It’s time to launch our electric construction machines.
It’s time to Add Silence.

In an old city street at night, a Volvo L25 Electric is driven through an archway.

Add silence

Exposure to noise is not only tiresome and annoying, in the long-term it can also affect health in a negative way. So we set out to do something about it with our electric construction machines.

Add clean

We only have one planet and we should take good care of it. So we created a range of electric construction machines that can put us on the road to eliminating exhaust fumes and the emissions they create.

Add comfort

Vibrations are uncomfortable and potentially harmful as they can cause headaches, fatigue and back pain. So when we designed our electric construction machines it was important to keep vibrations to a minimum.
