While the transportation industry is highly focused on developing all-electric replacements for ICE automobiles, many other forms of vehicles and heavy equipment are also experiencing an electric revolution. In the world of agriculture, the tractor has recently seen significant research and development from many companies, where the final product requires a whole different perspective regarding power and durability. 

The benefits of electrifying the tractor could be huge: One company, Gridtractor, estimates that

  • Farms can save 55-75 percent on fuel costs by going electric, and up to 90 percent by supplying stored power to irrigation pumps and to the grid.

We’ve put together a list of eight tractors, both on the market and coming soon, that are particularly exciting. Read on to see eight agriculture e-tractors to watch out for.
