New RogueX2 autonomous wheel loader concept to be unveiled for the first time in Paris  

THE Bobcat stand at Intermat 2024 will give an insight into what the company is developing for the construction industry of the future, together with new and existing products that provide customers with fresh solutions and increased productivity today.

For the future market, Bobcat will be unveiling the new RogueX2 autonomous wheel loader concept, the second iteration of the original RogueX system.

The RogueX2 loader has been developed from the RogueX concept presented at the Conexpo 2023 show in Las Vegas last March. RogueX2 is an all-electric and autonomous concept machine that produces zero emissions, and features a lithium-ion battery, electric drive system and electric actuated lift and tilt kinematics with no hydraulics.


Specifically designed and built without a cab, the RogueX2 and RogueX concept machines address the challenges of workforce shortages by eliminating the need for an operator. They also provide the blueprint for how work machines of the future can be designed and optimized for new technologies and enable an entirely new work experience.

With RogueX2, the internal combustion engine (ICE) is replaced with an electric powertrain for power and drive. This machine also eliminates 100% of the hydraulics, including all connectors, hoses, tube lines and fittings that are common failure points. The absence of hydraulics and fluids in its design not only reduces ICE emissions but also minimizes noise pollution and the risk of all environmental pollution.

The original RogueX was designed with tracks, and it uses advanced workgroup kinematics to offer unique functionality that combines vertical-path, radial-path and variable-path lift capabilities in one machine.

In contrast, RogueX2 is designed with wheels instead of tracks to optimize the electric battery run time. It also features axial flux motors, which give the machine superior tractive effort. The machine delivers greater power output for demanding applications like grading, digging, or powering attachments for heavy-duty work.

Together, the RogueX and RogueX2 concept loaders have garnered many new patents pending. ‘These patents represent more than new features on a machine -– they signify how we are breaking rules to define a new work experience,” said Joel Honeyman, Doosan Bobcat’s vice-president of global innovation.

Other new Bobcat additions being showcased at Intermat include a brand-new range of rotary telehandlers and a new variable-pressure portable air compressor.
