Over the last couple of months, Volvo CE has launched over 50 new models to its dealers and customers in Europe and North America. The new products are equipped with the latest engine technology fulfilling Tier 4i and Stage III B requirements. Some of the products will be launched in other sales regions later this year.
Among all the new products, the wheel loader 220G in March won the most globally-recognized design prize, the Red Dot Award. Competing with over 4,000 entries the L220G stood out from the crowd because of its fuel efficient and productive design, with 20% increased lifting force, 10% improved breakout force and stronger hydraulics.
In March, Volvo CE announced plans to invest USD 100 M in its Shippensburg manufacturing facility and start production of wheel loaders, excavators and articulated haulers. Also, Volvo CE’s North American sales headquarters and Volvo Rents will relocate from Asheville to Shippensburg.
