Kubota Unveils Prototype Electric “Tractor of the Future”

When you think of "sustainable agriculture," you might think of organic fertilizers, permaculture techniques, or biodiesel engines. The Kubota Corporation, widely known for their high-quality farming and construction machinery, are developing another option that's poised to change the future face of farming: the electric tractor engine. In January of this year, Kubota unveiled prototypes of an electric tractor and compact construction machinery that they're developing in Kyoto, Japan. Later this year, they'll start testing the machines' efficacy in the fields of France, and after that, the rest of Europe. As soon as they enter the US market, you can be sure the folks here at Evergreen Tractor will have them available for your farm.Diesel has been the name of the game for a long time with farm and construction work, but electric motors have been getting more and more powerful, alongside their well-known efficiency gains. Electric equipment is also quieter than diesel- or gas-powered motors, which will enable more work to be done in more crowded areas and with less protective gear. Both prototypes that were unveiled in Kyoto are powered by lithium-ion battery technology, and are equivalent to their diesel counterparts in terms of maximum output. In a few short years, you'll find it easier than ever to perform weeding in parks, construction work requiring low emission control and low noise output, or general construction, transportation, or fertilizer work.

If electric tractors aren't futuristic enough for you, Kubota has also demonstrated a truly space-age technology: a completely autonomous tractor representing the future of farming. Imagine sitting back in a control room and monitoring tractors from the comfort of air conditioning, instead of working them under the heat and brightness of the sun! Plus, the tractor can change its shape for any type of work, meaning it'll save you money in equipment.
