Volvo CE Unveils Electric Compact Wheel Loader Concept

The title of this post is the same as that of this Volvo CE press release.

This is the introduction.

Volvo Construction Equipment demonstrated the LX02 electric compact wheel loader at the Volvo Group Innovation Summit in Berlin. The prototype machine delivers zero emissions, significantly lower noise levels, improved efficiency and reduced operational costs.

I suggest that you read the press release, as it says a lot for Volvo’s plans for carbon, pollution and noise-free construction.

  1. Quiet construction vehicles will be welcomed by a lot of people living near large building works. I wonder how these vehicles will be charged when working on groundworks on new sites where there is often only a temporary limited “builder’s” supply. The use of lithium batteries in fork lift trucks has made a big difference as a lot of capacity was lost in carrying around lead/acid batteries.

    • As I said, I think JCB’s link to ITM Power is significant, as they could put a hydrogen supply at the nearest sub-station.
