, a subsidiary of Ideanomics Inc., announced the launch of the all-new e70N electric tractor, a specially designed, narrow model purpose-built for easy handling and maneuverability on vineyards and farm operations.
The Solectrac e70N (Narrow) electric tractor is a 4WD, 70 HP (horsepower)
vehicle designed for larger agricultural applications including farms, vineyards, and orchards. The e70N opens a bold new market of opportunities for Solectrac. With up to eight hours of operation from a single charge and the ability to extend that time via swappable battery packs, the e70N allows operators to work more efficiently. The electric tractor sports a narrow 54-inch width, and Level 2 charging via 220 VAC or a solar array. The e70N is now available for pre-order with a fully refundable $1,000 deposit. Delivery expected in Spring 2022.
"The e70N is yet another innovative electric tractor breakthrough from Solectrac, this time focused on commercial-level, heavy-duty farm and vineyard operations,"
said Solectrac CEO Mani Iyer. "This category of zero-emission electric tractors is in high demand as many farmers look to cut emissions and reduce noise pollution, but still require larger, more powerful vehicles with easy maneuverability. The e70N, with swappable battery pack technology, was designed to meet the needs of these customers. The unique and multi-faceted new model will position Solectrac to gain market share and compete very favorably with medium- and heavy-duty tractors in both agriculture and commercial tractor segments."
Solectrac provides zero-emission electric tractor models for applications that span the spectrum of small hobby farms and special utility operations to larger-scale, commercial-level vineyards and farms. Customer deliveries are happening every month, with new orders expected to deliver in Spring 2022.https://investors.ideanomics.com/2021-08-04-Solectrac,-an-Ideanomics-Company,-Launches-New-e70N-Electric-Tractor,-Delivering-to-California-Vineyards-and-FarmsPhotos:
