A new era for electric loaders: The new fully electric Avant e513 and Avant e527 are here

Working with an electric loader is now more efficient than ever – even in extremely cold conditions. Avant Tecno presents the renewed e series and the third generation of fully electric loaders, whose unique battery technology further improves the capacity, pricing, safety, working time, durability, and lifespan of electric loaders. With a fully charged Avant e527, you can work all day.

Finnish compact loader manufacturer Avant Tecno has been at the forefront of the development of electric loaders for decades. Now, Avant is launching two next generation fully electric loader models, the Avant e513 and Avant e527, which will renew the Avant e series and replace their predecessors, the Avant e5 and e6 models. The new loaders will enter production in January 2024.

Unique battery technology

The new loaders are equipped with Avant OptiTemp® battery packs (13 kWh and 27 kWh)
manufactured by Avant Tecno’s subsidiary Avant Power. The globally unique battery technology
brings capacity to a whole new level, and the energy density of the batteries is among the best in the
world. The thermal management system of the patented lithium-ion batteries guarantees the same
capacity in hot and extremely cold temperatures. Multi-level protection makes Avant OptiTemp®
batteries very safe.

Power for demanding professional use

The new Avant e513 and Avant e527 loaders are almost identical, but the only difference lies in the
capacity of the batteries. The Avant e513 (13 kWh) is a good choice for short-term continuous use
on cattle farms, horse stables, greenhouses or DIY and leisure time, for example. The Avant e527
loader (27 kWh) with a larger battery is ideal for demanding professional use. Construction and
demolition contractors will benefit from this model.
The fully electric Avants are ideal for working in confined spaces and on construction sites that have
strict limits on noise and emissions.

A full workday on a single charge

When fully charged in the morning, the Avant e527 loader (27kWh) can be used for a whole working
day. The maximum operating time of the machine is about 6 hours for medium-duty work, whereas
for Avant e513, it is about 3 hours. The battery of both loaders can be fully charged with a fast
charger in under 1.5 hours, allowing for long working days.

“For years, the market has been longing for fully electric loaders that would be more like diesel
loaders in terms of functionality. Until now, operating time and pricing have been key issues related
to electric loaders, but with Avant’s new e series, we solve them both”, says Jani Käkelä, CEO of
Avant Tecno.

The renewed Avant e series

  • Fully electric loader series. Zero-emission, very quiet. Low operating and maintenance costs.
  • Two models: Avant e513 (battery capacity 13 kWh) and Avant e527 (battery capacity 27 kWh).
  • Excellent capacity in hot conditions and severe frosts.
  • Fast charge in under 1.5 hours. Type 2 charging, built-in 3 kW battery charger. The maximum
    charging current has been increased by 50% compared to previous Avant electric loaders.
  • Two electric motors: one for driving hydraulics, and one for auxiliary hydraulics, boom, and
    steering. Thanks to the electric motor, maximum torque is immediately applied, which ensures
    excellent thrust.
  • The further improved cooling system in the engine package keeps the machine’s heat under
    control even in soft terrain. Increased load resistance in short-term hard work.
  • The updated multifunction display provides information on battery status, temperature, power
    consumption, operating hours, auxiliary hydraulics output, maintenance needs, and more.
  • Same appearance as in Avant’s diesel-powered 500 and 600 series loaders.
