By Andy Brown30 September 2022
China-based XCMG has revealed that at Bauma 2022 in Munich, Germany, the OEM will showcase its biggest ever overseas lineup, with 39 products on show – with ten of them powered by alternative sources.
XCMG’s 1,824-square-meter exhibition area will be over a third larger than its last Bauma and will show products from six categories, including hoisting, excavating, scraping, road, piling and aerial work platform machineries will be on show.
All products on show will be specially customised for the European construction market.
Themed ‘Innovation for Green,’ XCMG will release over ten new energy products, including the hybrid all-terrain crane XCA60EV, electric excavator XE35E, electric loader XC918-EV, electric telescopic handler XC6-2506E (China’s first), electric counterbalanced forklift XCB-LW35 and ten electric aerial work platforms from XCMG fire-fighting safety equipment.
XCMG says that all of the upcoming releases at Bauma share the advantages of having a large-capacity battery, quick charging times, and zero carbon emission.
“Focusing on the goals of carbon peaking by 2027 and carbon neutrality within its operation boundaries by 2049, XCMG has continuously been building up its green R&D and manufacturing capabilities to spearhead the development of new energy products in the machinery manufacturing industry, and with our products demonstrating an excellent power performance, construction ability and value beyond money, we’ve won customers’ recognition in the high-end markets including Europe and Oceania,” said Jianshen Liu, Vice President of XCMG and GM of XCMG Import and Export Ltd.
