Yanmar, a supplier of power solutions and industrial machinery, will introduce its electrification strategy for off-road vehicles and equipment at Bauma 2022, the international construction machinery trade fair, which will take place in Munich from 24 to 30 October.

Yanmar will showcase its off-road product portfolio, commitment to customer lifecycle value and future vision for industrial equipment. Highlights include the electrification strategy for e-powertrains, a demonstration of electrical equipment, a high-density Yanmar / ELEO modular battery system and an extended 5-year warranty for TN series motors.

All-in-one system integrator

Yanmar will establish itself as the all-in-one system integrator for smart electrified power solutions tailored to the application-specific needs of individual OEMs. As a system integrator, Yanmar will perform system development, design and production of e-powertrains, while providing control development, system evaluation, procurement, manufacturing and quality assurance. As Yanmar develops into a provider of electrified solutions, the company remains true to its core values ​​of durability, reliability, quality and robustness, along with a commitment to be a reliable and trusted partner for customers – values ​​that the company has had. for more than 110 years has been highly respected.

Electric excavator

Mr. Tomohisa Tao, President of Yanmar Power Technology Co. Ltd .: “If Yanmar is to meet the challenges of the next century, our transformation will include new products with alternative fuel technologies.” At bauma 2022, Yanmar will demonstrate an electrified demonstration vehicle demonstrating the practical application of the company’s system integrator technologies. Powered by an efficient electric drive and hard-working 48-volt batteries with the option of fast charging, the electric excavator is a quiet zero-emission machine designed to meet the most demanding emission limitations. The machine is an example of Yanmar’s system integrator application technology that integrates power and control systems with advanced application management into a versatile and user – friendly machine.

ELEO – modular battery systems

An important milestone in realizing the environmental challenges we must overcome is the acquisition of the battery technology company ELEO, a fast-growing developer and manufacturer of high-performance modular battery systems. This acquisition will expand Yanmar’s electrified driveline capabilities with versatile, bespoke solutions for off-road applications. ELEO is building a new battery production plant that doubles the annual battery production capacity to 500MWh – equivalent to approximately 10,000 battery packs.


Yanmar offers a 5-year off-road vehicle warranty. The launch of the new 5 year warranty (or 5,000 hours) further increases the sustainability and extended ownership of the current range of clean diesel solutions during the transformation to CO2-neutral energy solutions. This extended warranty is free and valid for TN Series motors sold in Europe and used in European territory.

Zero emissions

Yanmar undertakes a range of activities in pursuit of a sustainable society to achieve zero emissions and a sustainable future. The company has already embarked on several new energy projects in various business areas, including hydrogen cogeneration, hydrogen fuel marine engine research, biogas cogeneration, natural gas dual fuel energy solutions, marine fuel cell technology, smart agriculture and resource recycling technologies.
