Focussing a sustainable vision for the future of farming, New Holland Agriculture, a global agricultural equipment brand of CNH Industrial has developed methane powered concept tractor.
This concept is the next step in realizing the farm of the near future, one that moves away from fossil fuel powered vehicles and embraces renewable sources.
It combines alternative fuels and advanced agricultural technology with readily available powertrain innovation from CNH Industrial sister brand FPT Industrial. This machine is said to reduce running costs by 30 per cent with a six-cylinder methane engine delivers 180hp and 740Nm, which is the same power and torque as its standard diesel counterpart.
CNH Industrial's brands are forerunners and market leaders in the development and commercializing of natural gas-powered vehicles. Biomethane represents the latest phase in the Company's alternative fuels strategy. It particularly suits on-farm use by agricultural vehicles as farmers already possess the raw materials and the space to produce the gas. This enables agribusinesses not only to be fuel sufficient but also energy sufficient.
