Nothing has been announced in this category nor is there anything currently in the European market, 

The lawn mower is currently the best substitute to either vacuum them up into the bag or mulch them into fertilizer for the lawn.  I understand this is not a solution for all situations in need of a lawn vacuum, but I was surprised this year when I mulched all of my leaves and did not rake, vacuum or bag leaves for the first time in 20+ years.

I also use my mower for mulching and vacuuming leaves. Even leaves that have fallen on the sidewalk and in the street gutter. Height setting #1 does a great job on the sidewalk and gutter.
I could see the vacuum being effective for places the mower can't reach for sure, but I tend to use my leaf blower to get them out where the mower can get to them.

I say build one. :). If they won't make it, doesn't mean it can't be made. Snow blower motors are crazy powerful. Hard to find. But they show up on ebay.

I say this because I doubt it's going to happen. They have a ton of tools to make but instead, they are just upgrading the core tools, leaf blower, trimmer, hedge trimmer, mowers ect.

I too would like to see Ego make a blower/vacuum. If they did I would have already bought a mover, string trimmer, hedge trimmer and blowervac So, I might buy the Greenworks yard tool suit just because they have a blower/vacuum/mulcher.

Please build a leaf mulcher that attaches to a large bag.  When I use my Ego mower to mulch leaves,I spend most of my time emptying the mower bag (stop the mower, open the back hatch, empty the bag, open the back hatch again, reattach, and start the mower).  I prefer to get my deep knee bends at the gym :-)

A wet/dry vac that would vacuum up leaves and straw in my driveway and sidewalk and works with standard lawn and leaf bags would be a great item for me.   

These are already available in other brands - but I'm holding out for an EGO!
