Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) has signed a three-year agreement to become the official construction equipment supplier to the fully electric World Rallycross Championship (World RX).

The partnership between Volvo CE and the event will aim to limit transportation and logistics emissions at the races, boost inclusivity and reduce travel-related emissions. 

Volvo CE says that this establishes a platform to accelerate sustainable transformation in the construction equipment industry and motorsport.

Bill Law, head of brand, marketing and communications at Volvo CE, says, “A global shift to an electric future is inevitable and urgent – and we know that more sustainable construction solutions are a vital part of driving that change.

“That is why we are thrilled to partner with the now fully electric FIA World Rallycross Championship – a series that shares our commitment to not only demonstrate the power of electromobility today but also work together on a journey to build the world we want to live in.”
