Volvo is building the future. As an advocate of sustainability, Volvo invites you to embark on a journey towards electrifying your operation.
Volvo Electric Machines
Explore Volvo’s range of all-electric machines. It included the first fossil fuel-free L25 Electric compact wheel loader and the ECR25 Electric compact excavator. We now also have the compact L20 Electric, EC18 Electric and ECR18 Electric. Electric machines get high performance with less noise, less vibration and no exhaust fumes. Maybe it’s time to change the way you work? Change starts here.
Compact machine models with all-electric transmissions feature supercharged efficiency and the best battery technology. The L25 Electric’s battery is designed to provide up to 2500 full charge cycles, which is the entire life expectancy of the machine. Electric machines require less maintenance, which leads to longer uptime.

How long does a fully charged battery last?
Depending on the type of work, such as the application and the intensity of the work cycles, with a typical stop/start work pattern, you can operate the L25 Electric compact wheel loader for up to an 8-hour working day on a single charge.
How long does it take to charge electric construction machines?
With the right charging infrastructure, it is possible to charge the Volvo Construction Equipment electric machine up to 80% in just 1-1.5 hours. To be this fast, external charging with 400 VAC 32A is required.
When you say “electric”, does that include hydraulics as well?
Volvos compact electric machines have an all-electric power source and hydraulic cylinders and pumps.
How will running costs compare with diesel?
With diesel engines, many operating hours are counted while the machine is idle. With an electric machine, as soon as the operator stops working, the machine shuts down and no operating hours are accumulated. When you think about the total cost of ownership, these hours saved can lead to lower daily operating costs.
How will electric machines perform against diesel?
In terms of power and performance, these machines are comparable to or exceed their diesel counterparts. The Volvo ECR25 electric excavator and L25 electric wheel loader feature almost identical specifications to their diesel counterparts. The few exceptions, such as the slight increase in continuous engine power for the ECR25, are actually improvements.
How does the maintenance of an electric battery compare to diesel?
With an electric machine, there is no motor-related maintenance. State-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries and electric motors require less maintenance than diesel.
Is there a special warranty for electrical construction equipment?
All Volvo CE electric machines come with 2 years free servicing and a full 2 year machine warranty, so you can experience all the benefits of Volvo’s electric revolution with complete peace of mind. In addition, by signing up for a maintenance contract after the second year, the battery and electronic components are covered free of charge against defects for a further 3 years.
