Time is Now

Electrified vehicles are increasingly entering the market, be it due to stricter emission regulations, improved efficiency and controllability or a new green awareness among buyers.

For OEMs or vehicle/machine operators, the obvious question is: What are the REAL benefits of electrification of their vehicles?

  • Low maintenance:

    A battery electric vehicle has a lot less moving parts than a conventional petrol/diesel one.

    There is relatively little servicing and no expensive exhaust systems, starter motors, fuel injection systems, radiators and many other parts that aren’t needed in an EV.

  • Safety improvements:

    EVs tend to have a lower centre of gravity that makes them less likely to roll over.

    They can also have a lower risk for major fires or explosions check this and the body construction and durability of EVs may make them safer in a collision.

  • Work Longer:

    Some areas are introducing Clean Air Zones with fees designed to discourage polluting vehicles and working machines from entering certain areas.

    You will thus have the freedom to move into certain restricted areas or to work with your construction machines even at times that are currently prohibited.

Electric Powertrain

In comparison to a conventional vehicle, an electric vehicle has significantly fewer components and fewer parts that are subject to wear.

Increasing numbers of original equipment manufacturers are releasing electric powered construction equipment to the market, mainly for compact models. Nedjimi also commented that he believes that the industry is embracing electric as a power source, saying, “As a specialist in electromobility, I can tell you that it’s now obvious that we are standing before a shift towards electromobility.”

“Without an internal combustion engine and a fuel tank, there are new design possibilities to explore. In most of those vehicles, there is a large engine usually located in a single place and a fuel tank that takes up space in the vehicle. While there is a need for battery and electric motor placement in electric vehicle, designers are not locked into this traditional framework and are able to package the batteries and motors differently.”
