The 'world's first electric digger' has received this year's £50,000 MacRobert Award for UK engineering innovation.
The Royal Academy of Engineering gave the win to the JCB excavator, which has zero exhaust emissions and very low noise levels.
The company's current fleet is estimated to have saved the equivalent of 15,100kg in carbon dioxide emissions across more than 5.500 hours of work.
