Doosan Bobcat unveiled its all-electric Bobcat T7X compact track loader at the CES 2022 expo in Las Vegas, USA. The T7X is the world's first all-electric compact track loader. This machine is fully battery-powered, built to be more productive from the ground up with electric actuation and propulsion, quieter with highperfor­mance torque and more powerful than diesel-fuelled track loaders.

Scott Park, president and CEO of Doosan Bobcat, said: "Doosan Bobcat is at the forefront of innovation, and we are proud to debut the all-electric technology of the

T7X to help customers maximize both sustainabi­lity and productivi­ty. Our focus remains on providing solutions and products that empower people to accomplish more and build a better world."

Joel Honeyman, vice president of global innovation at Doosan Bobcat, said: "This machine is a technologi­cal feat for Bobcat and for the entire industry," said "We challenged the status quo to deliver a connected, allelectri­c machine designed for power and performanc­e that previously was not possible.

We are excited to share this advancemen­t with the world and proud of the hard work that has gone into making this a reality."

The Bobcat T7X was developed for the North American market initially, but internal testing and the gathering of customer feedback is planned for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region to identify its commercial potential.

Vijay Nerva, head of innovation, Doosan Bobcat EMEA, said: “The T7X has been developed for the North American market for now but it addresses a global need and challenge. We plan to undergo internal testing and gather customer feedback in various countries in the EMEA region this year to better understand customer needs in this market before taking commercial decisions.”

In the T7X, the traditiona­l hydraulic work group has been completely replaced with an electrical drive system consisting of electric cylinders and electric drive motors, which means virtually no fluids. The new, allelectri­c Bobcat T7X uses just under one litre of eco-friendly coolant compared to around 216 litres of fluid in its diesel/hydraulic equivalent model.

The all-electric platform enables instantane­ous power and peak torque available at every operating speed. The operator no longer must wait for the standard hydraulic system to build up power.

The T7X operates with zero emissions and reduced noise and vibration generated by the machine. It works quietly and efficientl­y in noise sensitive areas and indoors, which significan­tly lowers sound levels and improves the working environmen­t.

At the heart of the T7X is a powerful 62 kw lithium-ion battery from technology partner, Green Machine Equipment, Inc. While applicatio­ns vary, each charge can support common daily work operations and the use of intelligen­t work modes for up to four hours of continuous operation time and a full day of operation during intermitte­nt use. The intelligen­ce of the power management system is programmed to sense when loads are increasing, automatica­lly backing off power when not needed to preserve the total energy use and extend the machine's runtime
