The HX1 autonomous, battery-electric, load carrier is the first-generation prototype, which served as proof of concept for the updated, second-generation prototype, HX2. In 2016, Volvo CE celebrated HX1’s success in the Swedish Quality Innovation award.
The HX2 autonomous, battery-electric load carrier prototype incorporates shared technologies and components from the Volvo Group. The HX2 also has a completely new drivetrain and a vision system that detects humans or obstacles in the machine's vicinity.
The EX2 100% electric compact excavator prototype delivers zero emissions, 10 times higher efficiency, 10 times lower noise levels and reduced total cost of ownership compared to its conventional counterparts.
The LX1 electric hybrid wheel loader can deliver up to a 50% improvement in fuel efficiency. The machine also offers a significant reduction in emissions and noise pollution compared to its conventional counterparts.
The EX1 is a 70-ton dual-powered, cable-connected excavator prototype.
Although it's operated in exactly the same way as a conventional Volvo compact excavator, it is much more environmentally friendly – in fact, when it's plugged into the grid, it emits no carbon whatsoever.
