The benefit: Excon 2017 is the perfect platform to highlight our unique position in supporting India's ongoing infrastructure buildout. We are excited to highlight our strength in depth as well as the superior productivity of our machines during the show.
Launches or product upgrades: Our new EC200D excavator will be the star at the expo this year.
We are launching it in Excon; this will be the first chance for many to see the new machine up close and personal.
Generating business: We are expecting to see strong interest in the EC200D, which has been designed specifically for general construction work. The new excavator features our famed fuel efficiency, a bucket breakout force of 123 kN and an arm tearout force of 96 kN, which helps it deliver high job site productivity and fast cycle times.
Understanding customer requirement: Volvo CE is heavily focused on productivity and lowering the cost of operations, or cost per tonne, for customers. A big contributor to this is fuel efficiency. It's not unusual for a Volvo CE customer to report fuel savings of 10 per cent or more for one of our machines versus a competitor model. We achieve this by constantly looking for ways to improve our existing product line, so there is not just one specific R&D activity; it's an ongoing focus for us.
