Elgin Electrification Overview

Elgin Electrification Overview

We remain committed to our vehicle electrification initiatives and continue to identify new ways to integrate electrification into our suite of products. Our solutions will guide customers on their path towards reducing their carbon footprint and improving air quality without ever compromising performance.

With continued advancements in electrification, we have also developed dedicated resources and partnered with industry experts to research and identify the most relevant state and federal funding information for sweepers, actively linking our customers to funding opportunities for electric vehicle (“EV”) purchases. Approximately 20% of our annual Research and Development expense is dedicated towards our electrification efforts.

Elgin Sweeper is a pioneer in the development of cleaner, alternative-fuel street sweeper solutions. In the last three years, we have introduced three electric/hybrid electric street sweeper offerings that are important tools for municipalities and operators looking to reduce their own carbon footprint without compromising performance. We also offer a single-engine sweeper that eliminates the diesel auxiliary engine, thus reducing the carbon emissions of the machine. In 2023, we launched our full-size, 100% electric, zero-emission Broom Bear mechanical sweeper at the ConExpo tradeshow. Powered by a 400 kWh, lithium iron phosphate battery, the electric Broom Bear is one of the industry’s first forays into an all-electric sweeping solution. Users can eliminate emissions, reduce noise, cut maintenance costs, and still complete a day’s work on one charge. The fully electric Broom Bear joins the other hybrid offerings in Elgin’s suite of high-performance sweepers in serial production, including the plug-in, hybrid electric Broom Bear and the plug-in, hybrid electric Pelican, our popular 3-wheeled sweeper.
