John Deere unveiled an electric excavator at CES 2023 that the company expects to provide construction firms and roadbuilders with lower daily operating costs, reduced jobsite noise and more.

Powered by a Kreisel Electric battery, John Deere says the electric excavator also enhances machine reliability and produces no emissions – all without sacrificing the power and performance users need in machines.

“Everything we do at John Deere is focused on real purpose and real impact,” says Jahmy Hindman, chief technology officer at John Deere. “This means we’re developing technology that enables our customers to provide the food, fuel, fiber and infrastructure that our growing global population needs.”

In 2022, John Deere acquired a majority stake in Kreisel, which developed battery technology for a range of mobile and stationary applications. John Deere says Kreisel’s charging technology results in faster and lower-cost connections to the electrical grid.
