CNH INDUSTRIAL PRESENTS FIRST ELECTRIC TRACTOR PROTOTYPE WITH AUTONOMOUS FEATURES
Zero emissions farming solution enhances value and delivers next step in the Company’s innovation plan
London, December 9, 2022
CNH Industrial revealed the New Holland T4 Electric Power – the industry’s first all-electric light utility tractor prototype with autonomous features – at its Tech Day in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
A concentrated effort between our team of experts in the USA (Burr Ridge, Detroit) and Italy (Modena) was able to halve this prototype’s development time thanks to collaboration with our strategic partner Monarch Tractor – an electrified Ag innovator based in California, USA. Our expertise and resources, in conjunction with Monarch’s disruptive technology, made this world-first result possible.
This product milestone is the latest development in our strategic plan for electrification. The prototype presented is branded New Holland Agriculture, while the commercial model will also extend to our Case IH Brand. It follows the launch of the multi award-winning e-Source power pack – an external generator for electric farm implements.
“The T4 Electric Power is the ideal solution for lower horsepower operations. It is suited to mixed farm, livestock, municipality, orchard and specialty applications. We know our customers are eager to adopt this type of product, so it makes perfect sense for us to continue our Ag electrification journey with this platform,” explains Marc Kermisch, Chief Digital & Information Officer, CNH Industrial.
