Caterpillar has revealed three new battery prototypes for off-highway equipment at the Bauma construction industry trade fair in Munich, Germany. 

The 48-, 300- and 600-volt prototype batteries use lithium-ion technology and feature a modular design for optimised performance, as well as packaging for third-party original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Developed as part of a strategy to support customers through the transition to low-carbon, the batteries have been engineered with sustainability in mind throughout their lifecycle, with the potential to reuse and recycle at the end of life.

Caterpillar’s low-carbon programme initially focuses on battery solutions for equipment used in industrial applications, and incorporates expertise across its global network of technical centers in the US, UK, China and India.
