Hyundai CE to introduce new loaders and excavators at ConExpo

Hyundai CE

Hyundai CE Americas will display a full range of wheel loaders and excavators at its two ConExpo exhibits in Las Vegas. 

The exhibits will include new and enhanced models, Performance Series models (Stage 5 emissions compliant), integration of new services under the Hyundai Intelligence Care brand and two working prototypes of electric-powered compact excavators.

Hyundai will introduce a new 11,340 kg wheel loader, a 20- to 24-ton crawler excavator, a 9-ton compact excavator and a 26-ton material handler, as well as a new version of the HL975CVT wheel loader with a continuously variable transmission. 

As well, Hyundai CE will display a collaboration with Cummins; the introduction of “Cummins Performance Series” on both Hyundai wheel loader and excavator models to achieve compliance with the international Stage 5 emissions control standard. 

Furthermore, Hyundai will feature an expanded variety of Hyundai Intelligence Care technologies, including a new Hyundai Hi ASSIST (Hyundai Intelligence) option for HX series excavators that integrates a Trimble 3D machine-control system into the Hyundai control/monitor cluster, enabling remote setting of dig-site parameters to achieve more accurate digs, among several benefits. 

Another new service, Hyundai Hi CARE, establishes a support platform that facilitates dealer service organizations to provide remote support to their customers. 

To meet the need for low noise and zero emissions, Hyundai will show two electric excavator prototypes. 

At its indoor exhibit, Hyundai will show a working prototype of a Hyundai-electric-powered compact excavator. The outdoor exhibit will feature a working prototype of the Cummins-electric-powered Hyundai R35E compact excavator. 

The electric-powered compact excavators offer a variety of benefits, including no carbon emissions and quiet operations. The 3.5-ton excavator also contains eight BM4.4E modules connected in a series configuration to provide a total energy of 35 kWh.

Hyundai’s outdoor exhibit also will include an HX220A excavator live demo machine that will be outfitted with Hi ASSIST. The HX220A is a Performance Series update of the HX220L
