The electric driveline of the 0025 Electric is based upon the same proven architecture and components found on Volvo CE's ECR25 Electric compact excavator and L25 Electric compact wheel loader.

The zero emissions performance suits the machine for use in sensitive or urban environments with strict emission regulations and for organisations looking to meet sustainability goals. Zero tailpipe emissions also mean a cleaner working environment for operators and site personnel. I

Expected to operate for a full shift on a single charge depending upon the type of job and intensity of the work cycle, the 0025 Electric has the same charging solutions as its forerunners the ECR25 Electric and L25 Electric. Customers can choose the right solution depending on operational requirements. The machine comes with an integrated on-board charger which enables charging from 0 to 100% in as little as three hours depending on AC power level. With an optional off-board DC fast charger this can be achieved in little over an hour.

Combining the proven Volvo Asphalt Compactor platform with battery power, the 0025 Electric offers 24kW of available power, 30% more than the conventional Volvo 0025B. The result is a more responsive machine in terms of speed and vibrations, which performs better on grade. It also works better at high altitudes compared to a diesel machine which loses power.

Good visibility and high frequency compaction allow operators to achieve a smooth finish asphalt surface with speed. Frequency can be adjusted from 3500vpm/55Hz to 4000vpm/67Hz to cater for different applications.

And with no engine to service - and electric components, batteries and motors all maintenance free, maintenance requirements are reduced too.
