Volvo CE's electric line will increase to five machines in 2022.

Volvo Construction Equipment will add three more electric machines to its electromobility portfolio, with production starting in Q2 next year, as well as an app designed specifically to help fleets manage Volvo electric equipment.

Joining the previously released L25 Electric compact wheel loader and ECR25 Electric compact excavator will be the 4.5-ton L20 Electric compact wheel loader and the EC18 and ECR18 Electric compact excavators.

The company now offers five fully electric machines.

The L20 will have two battery sizes available, 33 or 40 kWh, depending on the customer’s desired operating time.

The EC18 is a conventional tail swing unit, available in heated cab or canopy versions. Its 20- kWh battery allows a run time of three to five hours depending on the application, Volvo says.

With a short turning radius, the ECR18 Electric is a canopy-only unit, with a 16-kWh battery affording users 2.5 to four hours of run time depending on the application.

Each machine comes with Type 2 plugs, with a range of the company's fast chargers also available.

Volvo says customers can make reservations for the new electric machines online immediately, starting in Europe.

The company’s “EMMA” (Electric Machine Management Application) telematics app, also available next year, will allow managers to view battery power levels for individual machines, receive charging reminders, and view machine locations.

Additional functionalities will be added in the future, Volvo says, in the areas of mapping and feedback functions to encourage dialog with customers. A demo is available now at
