…and we’re proud to take a leading position to help make it happen. The construction industry is at an inflection point where sustainability and technological transformation are on everyone’s mind. That can sound intimidating to some contractors — but we’re showing them that it doesn’t have to be.
As part of Volvo Group, we’re uniquely positioned to lead the charge on manufacturing zero-emission construction equipment and integrating those units into both public and private sector fleets. Volvo CE has one of the industry’s largest lineups of battery-electric machines, and we’re also exploring other sustainable power sources like hydrogen — but it doesn’t stop there.
We were the first construction equipment manufacturer to commit to stopping development of new diesel-powered compact machines. With our six-machine electric lineup, that commitment is coming to life.
The construction industry also needs to reduce emissions in larger machines to make significant strides toward a more sustainable future. Our new mid-size EC230 Electric excavator is taking the industry to that next level.
We’re also partnering with another Volvo Group business, Volvo Energy, to responsibly take care of batteries in each step of their lifecycle. This holistic view benefits both our customers and society as a whole.
Electric machines are only viable when practical charging solutions are available and accessible. We’ve been hard at work making that a reality with options like DC fast charging, off-grid solar options and more.
