bauma 2019 will be the first major industry event following the recent announcement that Volvo CE is to go electric on its Volvo-branded compact excavators and compact wheel loaders in 2020. With this move, Volvo CE claims to become the first construction equipment manufacturer to commit to an electric future for its compact machine range. The first two hydraulic-electric machines will be unveiled at bauma, followed by a staged market-by-market introduction and ramp up in 2020.

Volvo CE Bauma 2019 02 2019Excavators will be the stars of the show, continuing the thrust of Volvo CE’s worldwide ‘Excavators For Any Challenge’ campaign. New excavators that will be launched at the show include the 20 t EC200E, alongside the EC15-EC20E compact excavators.

There will also be the game-changing launches of the EC300E hydraulic-hybrid excavator and an EC220E that features Volvo Active Control automated boom and bucket movements for a more efficient digging process.

In all, there will be 50 machines on Volvo’s two stands, grouped into the sub-themes of ‘load’, ‘dig’, ‘haul’, ‘pave’, ‘innovation’ and ‘service’. Of these, Volvo Services has a much higher emphasis than ever before at this year’s bauma, with every machine supported with a dedicated service offering, via touch screens and other displays.
