The ‘EX2’ is 100% electrical, delivers zero emissions, 10 times lower noise levels, 10 times higher efficiency and a reduced total cost ownership compared to conventional counterparts.

This new innovation in the Volvo’s construction equipment product line is “...in line with the Volvo Group’s vision to be the most desired and successful transport solution provider in the world, Volvo CE is committed to contributing to sustainable development,” said Thomas Bitter, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Product Portfolio.
