The collaboration between AGCO’s agricultural machinery and BMZ’s battery technology aims to advance sustainable agriculture through electric and autonomous technology such as the Fendt e100 Vario Battery Electric Tractor.
Key highlights of the strategic cooperation include:
- Development of the Fendt e100 Vario Battery Electric Tractor: Specifically tailored for heavy-duty farming operations, this tractor will provide farmers with efficient and environmentally friendly alternatives to traditional diesel-powered equipment.
- Enhanced Sustainability: The adoption of electric technology in farming equipment will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, noise pollution and operational costs.
- Technological Advancements: The collaboration will foster the integration of digital and autonomous technologies into farming equipment, enabling precision farming, data-driven decision making and increased productivity.
The Fendt e100 Vario Battery Electric Tractor offers electric propulsion systems, improved energy efficiency, reduced emissions and noise levels and enhanced precision technology.
- Energy Density: The batteries feature an energy density that translates to longer operational hours and increased productivity for farmers. It ensures that the vehicles can operate for extended periods between charges, significantly reducing downtime and increasing efficiency.
- Nominal 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 tasks from plowing fields to transporting crops, while maintaining consistent performance.
