New Battery Heavy Duty Electric Tractor Launch:

As a testament to their commitment to innovation, AGCO and BMZ are excited to announce the launch of a highly innovative new Battery Heavy Duty Electric Tractor – the Fendt e100. This tractor represents a breakthrough in farming equipment, offering:

  • High-performance electric propulsion systems.
  • Improved energy efficiency and reduced operating costs.
  • Reduced emissions and noise levels.
  • Enhanced precision and connectivity for optimal farm management.

The innovative new Fendt e100 Vario boast exceptional technical parameters, setting a new standard in the agricultural machinery industry:

  • Energy Density: These state-of-the-art batteries feature an impressive energy density which translates to longer operational hours and increased productivity for farmers. The high energy density ensures that the vehicles can operate for extended periods between charges, significantly reducing downtime and increasing efficiency.
  • Text Box: THE GREEN ENERGY SYSTEM PROVIDERNominal Capacity: Developed batteries offer robust and reliable power to meet the demanding needs of heavy-duty farming equipment. The 150 Ah capacity ensures that the BEVs can handle the most challenging tasks on the farm, from plowing fields to transporting crops, all while maintaining consistent performance.

This technology not only enhances the operational capabilities of the Fendt e100 Vario Tractor but also aligns perfectly with AGCO and BMZ’s commitment to sustainability and eco-friendly farming practices. By delivering higher energy density and a substantial nominal capacity, these BEVs enable farmers to accomplish more while reducing their carbon footprint.

This Heavy Duty Electric Fendt e100 Vario Tractor is a significant step toward sustainable and efficient farming practices, allowing farmers to embrace modern technology while preserving the environment for future generations.

AGCO and BMZ are excited to introduce the Fendt e100 and look forward to shaping the future of agriculture through innovation, sustainability, and collaboration.
