Volvo Construction Equipment will showcase its lineup of zero-emission machines as it joins more than 40 construction industry manufacturers and infrastructure-focused organizations at the Celebration of Construction on the National Mall, hosted by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM).

"We are excited to bring a sustainably powered lineup of machines to the nation's capital and show policymakers and the public the importance of this transition," says Stephen Roy, president of Region North America at Volvo CE. "Having their support is critical for building a more sustainable future."

The Celebration of Construction on the National Mall will highlight how the equipment being used to build transportation and utility infrastructure is contributing to a sustainable world.

Volvo CE has committed to stopping the development of new compact diesel models and set a goal to reach net-zero value chain greenhouse gas emissions by 2040.

Several of Volvo CE's new electric machines will be at the National Mall event, along with a concept machine and charging solutions:

  • L20 Electric compact wheel loader
  • L25 Electric compact wheel loader
  • ECR18 Electric compact excavator
  • ECR25 Electric compact excavator
  • DD25 Electric asphalt compactor
  • EC230 Electric mid-size excavator, which Volvo CE recently announced will be commercially available in North America in 2024
  • HX04 articulated hauler, what Volvo CE says is the world's first hydrogen fuel cell articulated hauler prototype

The Celebration of Construction on the National Mall is free and open to the public but will largely focus on providing tours and having educational conversations with legislators, their staff, and the media. The Volvo CE display anchors the east end of the mall on 9th Street.
