Volvo Booth Includes Electric Equipment Test Drives

March 9, 2023

Volvo Construction Equipment will feature new products, services, and technology in a dedicated Solutions Hall where attendees can test drive electric excavators and wheel loaders. Volvo will also showcase its electric lineup expansion with the 23-ton EC230 Electric mid-size excavator and DD25 Electric asphalt compactor.

“We are committed to being a fossil free company by 2040, but words will not reach targets,” said Melker Jernberg, president, in a prepared statement. “At Conexpo we want to help our customers be prepared for the change by showcasing our wide range of commercially available electric machines packaged with related charging infrastructure and other sustainable power alternatives.”

Autonomous concepts will also be displayed, as will a hydrogen fuel cell articulated hauler and a remote-controlled unit. Volvo’s next series of excavators will be introduced, and the upgraded L350 wheel loader will be on display.

Inside the Solutions Hall, experts will be available to talk about services and technology. Solution offerings include:

  • Site solutions that give customers tailored recommendations for their fleet — regardless of brand — to optimize site setup and reduce the risk of accidents.
  • Business solutions to help customers streamline transactions, better control costs and maximize their uptime potential so they can stay focused on their core business.
  • Financial solutions including valuable bundles and unique offers that help customers better manage cash flow during seasonal slowdowns.
  • ActiveCare Direct telematics machine monitoring and reporting service, that provides proactive fleet intelligence to save customers time and money on diagnosing machine issues.
