Discover the future of construction vehicles with our Volvo Concept Wheel Loader ZEUX (42081)

What started out as a fun, informal team building event for the Volvo Construction Equipment and LEGO® Technic™ design teams, gradually evolved into an idea for an actual LEGO Technic product. The goal was to design construction machines of the future, and the result was the futuristic Volvo Concept Wheel Loader ZEUX and the rebuildable B-model, the Volvo Concept Hauler PEGAX.

Pushing the boundaries

“We have enjoyed a truly fun and productive collaboration with the LEGO Technic team over the past few years. We understand and respect each other’s passions for design and quality, so when this idea was born, both teams jumped at the opportunity. Over the course of a year, there were workshops in Billund, Denmark, lots of video meetings and exchanges of concept sketches and sketch models. All of which allowed space to test some really wild ideas.” Arvid Rinaldo, Brand Communication & Partnerships at Volvo Construction Equipment.

The journey of a design project

Listen as the LEGO Technic and the Volvo CE teams tell the story of their cooperation and how their ideas came to life.

The kids gave feedback

As for autonomous vehicles, it’s important that they can interact safely with both humans and other machines. That’s why both the mapping drone and the camera boom mounted on the rear of ZEUX became such essential parts of the overall concept. Technically the camera boom mounted on the rear of ZEUX is not needed as invisible sensors already do the task, but kids said they wanted the autonomous machine to make “eye contact” with them and acknowledge their presence.

Full of detail

This innovative LEGO® Technic™ model is packed with realistic details, including the cool mapping drone and camera arm. It has adjustable counterbalance, an operative boom and bucket, which works independently and simultaneously, and 4-wheel steering. The model also features futuristic rims with huge ground-gripping tires. And when you feel like another building challenge, it rebuilds into a futuristic Volvo Concept Hauler PEGAX.
