Solectrac manufactures two models of 100% battery-powered electric tractors for agriculture and utility use: the eFarmer and the eUtility. Solectrac's electric tractors eliminate GHG emissions and particulates, reduce noise, use eight times less energy and require ten times less maintenance compared to their diesel counterparts. We help farmers and food producers reduce their carbon footprint, reduce harm to soil and human health caused by diesel engine use, and support regenerative agriculture and carbon sequestration initiatives. Solectrac's powerful, quiet, zero emissions tractors can be powered by renewable energy, and are ready to replace diesel tractors in the 40-horsepower and under market segment.
