Tafe Launches Electric Tractor & Hydrogen Powered Concept at AGRITECHNICA 2023
Tafe, a pioneer in agricultural machinery has recently unveiled their innovations at the Agritechnica trade fair in Germany. The E30 electric tractor will be available post-summer 2024, while a hydrogen-powered concept awaits future developments.
Tafe, a leading agricultural machinery company, is at the forefront of sustainable farming technology. The company unveiled two great innovations at the Agritechnica trade fair in Hannover, Germany: an electric tractor named the E30 and a hydrogen-powered concept tractor.
Showcasing the new E30, which is a black electric tractor from Tafe has shared exciting news that it will be up for sale after the summer of 2024. The E30 is a small 27 hp tractor with a lithium-ion battery and a two-speed transmission, letting it go from 0 to 10 km/h or 0 to 24 km/h.
The tractor can tackle heavy tasks for up to 4 hours on a single battery charge, such as mowing, and handle lighter duties for 10 to 12 hours. A fast charger can replenish almost the entire battery in an hour, while a standard charger takes five hours.
Tafe plans to release the electric tractor to the market after the summer of 2024, with pricing details yet to be revealed. The electric motor, which works like a continuously variable transmission, the tractor is remarkably super efficient.
Distinguished by its two pedals—one for forward and the other for reverse—the E30 can tackle heavy tasks for up to 4 hours on a single battery charge, such as mowing, and handle lighter duties for 10 to 12 hours.
Similar to electric cars, a fast charger can replenish almost the entire battery in an hour, while a standard charger takes five hours. Tafe aims to release the electric tractor to the market post-summer 2024, with pricing details yet to be revealed.
Alongside the electric innovation, Tafe presented a hydrogen-powered tractor featuring a 55 hp Simpson combustion engine. However, this larger tractor remains a conceptual innovation, not available for sale. Equipped with hydrogen tanks strategically placed behind the seat and under the platform floor, the tractor demonstrates functionality.
The company remains at the forefront of transformative agricultural technology. Tafe acknowledged that while the tractor works, there are no immediate plans for commercialization due to the lack of ready infrastructure for hydrogen refueling.
