Efficiency now & long-term savings

Did you know that running your Volvo Electric machine is actually cheaper than operating a diesel alternative?

With the rising price of fuel, you can make cost savings on running a Volvo Electric machine, as it requires a simple power up from the electricity grid rather than using costly diesel. And as soon as the operator stops working, the electric motors turn off, so no unnecessary operating hours are added. So just imagine how much is possible to save over the time it takes to complete a whole project.

Electromobility FAQs

What is Electromobility?

Electromobility means vehicles - including cars, buses, trains, trucks and of course, construction equipment - that are fully or partly driven electrically and have a means of storing energy on board.

What is the difference between electromobility and hybrid technology?

Electric machines use an electric motor to propel or perform the main purpose of the machine, whereas a hybrid machine uses more than one power source - usually electric and diesel - and captures and reuses energy that would otherwise be wasted.

What environmental impact is related to an electric vehicle?

Electric vehicles do usually have a reduced environmental impact compared with diesel and gas-powered vehicles. Electric drivelines are generally more energy efficient and emit no exhaust emissions locally where the products are used.

What is the driving force behind electromobility?

Stricter carbon emission regulations - as well as our customers' own CO2 reduction targets - are certainly pushing this technology forward, but we believe that also desire for greater efficiency and reduced noise are key drivers.

How long has Volvo CE been working with electric and hybrid technology?

Volvo CE has been researching and developing electric and hybrid technology since as far back as 1998.

How are the batteries treated at end of life?

So far the amounts of used surplus batteries are fairly low, but as Volvo ramp up their production of electrified machines the need for recycling and reuse streams will increase. To be prepared for this Volvo CE is working together with waste contractors and other actors to maximize the recycling rate of electric batteries. Volvo are also looking into second use possibilities of old batteries to find potentials to prolong the battery lifetime in other applications, e.g. energy storage in facilities.

Will Volvo take care and pay for recycling of batteries at end of life?

Yes, Volvo will take care of the recycling of EV batteries. Assuring sustainable management of EV batteries throughout the lifecycle of the product will be an important component in achieving a circular and sustainable transport sector for the future. The producer responsibility regulations that many countries have mandates the battery manufacturers to collect the batteries. Due to considerable values (metal content, etc) of used batteries, there is also a financial driver providing opportunities for partnerships and 3:rd party involvement within the industry. Volvo Group has recently formed the company Volvo Energy who will develop electrification solutions to the group. Battery recycling, recovery and reuse solutions will be developed and managed by Volvo Energy going forward.

Do the batteries contain any scarce or conflict minerals?

To assure that the materials used in the electric batteries in Volvo machines, Volvo CE is assessing all parts to assure that any occurrence of Tantalum, Tungsten, Tellur, Gold and Cobalt come from non-conflict sources. Lithium ion batteries contain certain scarce materials such as e.g. heavy metals and Rare Earth Metals. Some of the scarce materials that can be found in Li-ion batteries and other electromobility components are known to sometimes be derived from sources known to directly or indirectly benefit armed groups in the area of origin. Often these materials are referred to as Conflict Minerals.

What electric machines are currently available?

Volvo CE's electric equipment offer consists of 5 compact models, Volvo ECR25 Electric, Volvo ECR18 Electric, Volvo EC18 Electric, Volvo L25 Electric, Volvo L20 Electric. Volvo have committed to having 35% of their machine sales be electric by 2030.

What is the warranty for the electric machines?

All Compact Electric models are supplied with a 2 years/ 2000 hours* comprehensive warranty, using genuine Volvo parts. The battery is covered with a 5 years/ 5000 hours* warranty, using genuine Volvo parts. *Whichever is earlier.
