Available on pre-order to North American customers, the DD25 electric asphalt compactor from Volvo CE is expected to begin shipping in the first quarter of 2024. The electric driveline of the compactor is based on the same proven architecture and components found on the company’s ECR25 electric compact excavator and L25 electric compact wheel loader.
Its zero-emission operation makes the DD25 ideal for sensitive or urban environments with strict emission regulations and for organizations that are looking to meet their own sustainability goals. Zero tailpipe emissions also mean a cleaner and more enjoyable work environment for operators, site teams and passers-by. says the company.
Volvo says the DD25 electric asphalt compactor is expected to operate for a full shift on a single charge, depending upon the type of job and intensity of the work cycle, using the same charging solutions as its forerunners. The machine comes with an integrated on-board charger that enables charging from zero to 100 per cent in as little as three hours, depending on AC power level. With an optional off-board DC fast charger, full charge can be achieved in just over an hour.
The double-drum DD25 Electric asphalt compactor offers 24 kW of available power, which is 30 per cent more than the conventional Volvo DD25B compactor.
The addition of the DD25 Electric asphalt compactor brings the Volvo CE electric lineup to six commercially available machines, with a mid-size excavator and mid-size wheel loader in the works.
