John Deere will showcase a variety of productivity and sustainably focused construction solutions with alternative power options at ConExpo-Con/Agg.

“As we continue to introduce battery electric and electric hybrid solutions to the market, we aren’t just designing a new way to fuel your fleet,” says Ryan Campbell, president of Worldwide Construction & Forestry and Power Systems. “We’re also focusing on building an electric infrastructure through innovative and forward-thinking technology. That means expanding our efforts to provide customers with optimal dealer support, jobsite data and charging solutions aimed to increase the electric presence in the construction space around the world.”

John Deere will offer E-Power machines utilizing battery solutions from Kreisel Electric. Offering a hybrid solution, John Deere says E-Drive machines feature an electrified drivetrain with an engine as the primary power source. E-Drive machines enable better fuel economy, improved powertrain component life, and stronger pushing power on the job than traditional models, the company adds.

John Deere is also developing electrification infrastructure solutions to address the energy replenishment challenges faced by battery electric vehicles in off-road production environments. A John Deere electrification ecosystem will offer an array of solutions to address needs for charging, data and connectivity, machine support, and financial services. The charging ecosystem will include a range of solutions for overnight and fast charging, according to the company.

“As a leader in the construction industry, John Deere is committed to helping decrease contributions to climate change and is uniquely positioned to deliver both economic and sustainable value to its customers through advanced technology and solutions,” Campbell says. “By 2026, John Deere aims to offer its customers a variety of electric construction equipment solutions, including 20-plus electric and hybrid models, helping to reduce the carbon footprint of the construction industry, starting with the nine electric or hybrid electric John Deere and Wirtgen Group machines on display at this year’s ConExpo-Con/Agg.

John Deere and Wirtgen Group will be both outside and indoors during the March 14-18 ConExpo-Con/Agg. The companies will be present in the Silver Lot (Booth S5020) and inside West Hall (Booth W40844).
