THE FIRST ELECTRIFIED LARGER VOLVO EXCAVATOR 

This machine, while not yet available to the market, is the next ground-breaking step for Volvo CE as it is the first time the company has electrified a larger excavator as a customer pilot.

The 22-t electric machine has been designed and built at the Volvo facilities in Changwon, South Korea, to suit a broader Asian customer base. The machine will be tested by customers in South Korea and China. During this research phase Volvo CE aims to mature it quickly so that it can be commercialized as soon as possible.
