Volvo Unveils Electric Excavator

Nov. 2, 2020

Volvo Construction Equipment unveiled a fully electric compact excavator at its inaugural Innovation Summit in London, England, this week.

The EX2 delivers zero emissions, 10 times higher efficiency, 10 times lower noise levels, and reduced total cost of ownership, the company said, presumably compared to a diesel excavator of the same weight class.

The Summit's focus is on smart cities, "to examine the role that innovation in commercial transport, including automation, electromobility, and connectivity, will play in the cities of tomorrow." It is the first of a series to be held around the world.
