JCB celebrates electric mini milestone

21 December 2022

JCB has produced its 1000th electric mini excavator, a milestone celebrated at the plant in Cheadle, Staffordshire, UK where JCB’s compact products are produced.

The manufacturer said the 19C-1E, which began production in 2019, was the world’s first volume-produced all-electric mini excavator.

JCB Chairman Lord Bamford said: “We are delighted with the success of JCB’s electric mini excavator, which is proving very popular around the world, particularly in North America, France and the UK where there is a growing demand for zero emissions equipment operating in urban environments.”

The 19C-1E is five times quieter than its diesel counterpart and can be fully charged in under two hours. JCB said the machine will complete a typical full shift on a single charge.

The model is targeted at work inside buildings and in emissions and noise-sensitive inner-city areas.

JCB added; “It is perfect for working indoors or outdoors, in factories, tunnels or basements, for digging foundations, or on utility projects.”
