The Future is Battery-Powered
The Battery-Powered Construction Equipment Trend is Growing
According to the International Energy Agency, the global Electric Vehicle (EV) fleet exceeded 5.1 million vehicles in 2018, up 40% from the 2 million vehicles in 2017. By 2025 global EV sales could top 100 million per year. In a new report issued by IDTechEx Research, it is predicted that by 2029 construction, agriculture, and mining EVs will surpass fuel-powered vehicle sales.
Clean technology and the reduction of harmful emissions, coupled with the ability for use in urban job sites or noise and emissions-sensitive environments such as hospitals and schools, is making battery-power impossible to ignore.
