Bobcat Reveals Electric Compact Loader at Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas


LAS VEGAS (DTN) — Doosan Bobcat has unveiled an all-electric Bobcat T7X compact track loader at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2022 — a high-profile, three-day technology show ending Friday. The T7X is the first machine of its kind to be fully electric, eliminating hydraulic systems, emissions and vibration, while providing a cleaner, quieter machine.

“This is (an) innovation that will transform how work is done and lead to a zero emissions future,” said Joel Honeyman, vice president of global innovation at Doosan Bobcat. “The T7x is a combination of raw steel, but also cutting-edge technology and is environmentally conscious and has powerful productivity … We challenged the status quo to deliver a connected, all-electric machine designed for power and performance that previously was not possible.”

During the company’s CES Media Days news conference, Doosan Bobcat also announced a strategic partnership with South Carolina-based Sunbelt Rentals, a leading rental equipment company in North America with more than 1,025 locations. Sunbelt Rentals has committed to a significant investment in a large fleet of Bobcat T7X all-electric compact track loaders and electric compact excavators in North America. These Bobcats will be co-branded and made available beginning in 2022.
