The Volvo Group energized attendees with a pioneering display of product and service durability.

Volvo CE displayed and demoed more than 50 of its most advanced on-and-off-road machines across the live show and indoor display. The complete line-up consisted of 47 construction machines, six commercial trucks, including both the autonomous Volvo FH and a series of electric trucks, and a demonstration of Volvo Penta's engines.

Volvo CE's dedicated innovation area detailed every step of the electrification journey, from concept to completion. The official launch of the ECR25 and L25 electric compact machines marked a significant moment in the company's drive toward building a more sustainable future.
