Mitigating Climate Change (Mitigating Climate Change through Products and Services)  Hybrid Hydraulic Excavators Surpass 3,000 Units in Sales

HB205-2

HB205-2

Since 2008, when Komatsu introduced the world’s first mass-produced Hybrid Hydraulic excavator (PC200-8E0), the number of units sold has continued to increase, with the cumulative sales total surpassing 2,000 units in FY2012, then exceeding 3,000 units in FY2014.

In FY2013, a model change was made to HB205/215-2, which greatly decreased the emissions of nitrogen oxide (NOx) and particulate matter (PM). Also in FY2013, in addition to the 20-ton class excavators, 30-ton class excavators were added to expand the model types available for overseas exports to countries such as Australia.

For these hybrid models, a 20~30% cut in fuel consumption has been achieved in comparison to previous models.
