Hyundai & Cummins To Develop Electric Mini

Hyundai and Cummins have announced that they are collaborating on the further development of an electric-powered mini-excavator. This is in response to the expectation that mini-excavators working in urban environments will be increasingly required to produce zero exhaust emissions and be significantly quieter in operation than diesel-powered machines.
