Product launches

Volvo CE is moving ahead with its plans to deliver turnkey solutions adapted for various customer groups. At the same time, the investment in soft products continues and Volvo CE will continue to launch new value-adding products and services for customers.

Product launches in 2010 include compact excavators EC15, EC17, EC21 and EC23, as well as compact wheel loaders L20F and L25F. In addition to these, large wheel loaders L150, 180 and L220 also included OptiShift as a standard feature.

An additional key event in 2010 was that Volvo CE was awarded the Tier 4i certificate from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, which certifies low emissions from heavy equipment equipped with the D11, D13 and D16 engines. This occurred after a similar certificate was received from the EU earlier in the year certifying that the engines complied with requirements in Europe’s Stage IIIB legislation.
