LIVERMORE, Calif. – April 7, 2023 – Electrification in agriculture is the gateway to an era of clean, profitable farming. That era is now. Monarch Tractor set a blistering pace by bringing the first all-electric, driver-optional, smart tractor to market in just two years. And now, strategic licensing agreements are allowing Monarch’s smart farming innovations in AgTech to fuel the availability of electric utility tractors.
In February 2023, CNH Industrial (CNHi) revealed its New Holland T4 Electric Power light utility tractor prototype. By collaborating with Monarch Tractor and benefitting from Monarch’s innovative and numerous advanced Agtech solutions, the T4 prototype was completed in half its scheduled development time. To this end, many of the Monarch MK-V features show up in the T4. This battery tractor can deliver up to a full day of work and be used as a portable power pack for tools or backup power generation. Farmers save time and money by eliminating diesel fuel costs and simplifying tractor maintenance.
CNHi anticipates the T4 will go to market by the end of 2023. The expansion of the electric utility tractor segment makes it easier for farmers to put AgTech solutions to work on their farm and reap the many benefits that come with it.
