    John Deere Unveils Latest All-Electric Tractor Prototype For Zero-Emission Agriculture

    Fred Lambert, December 5, 2016 (Electrek)

    "…[A]ll forms of ground transport will start to transition to electric propulsion relatively soon…[An example is] John Deere’s latest all-electric tractor concept…[T]his concept called SESAM (Sustainable Energy Supply for Agricultural Machinery) is the [company’s] first fully powered by a battery pack…Where you would normally find a large diesel engine under the hood, there are stacks of battery packs adding up to 130 kWh of capacity…That’s more energy than in Tesla’s highest capacity battery pack (100 kWh).

    SESAM needs it to tow large tools and to perform other tasks, which it can do while in ‘off mode’ without having a large diesel engine running…As for power, the vehicle is equipped with two 150 kW electric motors for a total power output of up to 300kW (402hp)…John Deere expects that the electric motors will require much less maintenance than a diesel engine. They will also provide redundancy and last longer…We could soon see more electric machines…” click here for more
