Solectrac, an electric tractor manufacturer and an operating company of Ideanomics, today announced it is expanding its sales and service network as part of its nationwide plan with the addition of a new certified dealer in the Pacific Northwest. Brim Tractor, a leading agricultural equipment dealer located in Lynden, Wash., is the first certified Solectrac dealer on the West Coast and will offer the company's full lineup of electric tractors including the e25 compact electric tractor, and the award-winning e70N, a powerful, narrow electric tractor purpose-built for vineyards and orchards. Solectrac will further expand its dealer network outside of the Pacific Northwest this year to meet the increasing demand for the company's award-winning electric tractors.
Solectrac and Brim Tractor will deliver electric tractor solutions to hobby farmers, rural lifestylers, first-time tractor buyers and more — while reducing their total cost of ownership compared to the cost of a diesel-fueled tractor, without sacrificing safety, performance and reliability.
Brim Tractor serves the greater Pacific Northwest area, and its opening supports Solectrac's continued expansion of its dealer network into key markets. Solectrac's all-electric tractors allow farmers to power their tractors by using the sun, wind and other renewable energy sources.
Today's announcement marks a major milestone for Solectrac, as the company looks to build out a world-class dealer network under the stewardship of recently appointed CEO Mani Iyer. Since Iyer's July 2021 appointment, the company has launched a new flagship tractor — the e70N, won major industry awards and hired John Deere veteran, Hariharan Viswanathan, as SVP of Product and Supplier Development. Since being acquired by Ideanomics in June 2021, Solectrac has made progress in facility expansion, advancement in engineering, after sales service, product support, hiring and more.
Solectrac electric tractors are available for purchase at all Brim Tractor locations in Washington, which include Lynden, Mount Vernon, Pacific, Rainier and Chehalis, in addition to Brim's locations in Rainier, Salem and Eugene, Ore.
