Yanmar reveals futuristic concept electric agriculture machine
Yanmar AG has revealed its e-X1 concept, an electric drive compact electric agricultural machine designed to achieve zero emissions in agriculture.
Because the machine is zero emission, it is ideal for night work, suburban farming, and operations within greenhouses. The e-X1 concept offers environmental performance and quietness when operating. The prototype small electric agricultural machine was unveiled at a stakeholder event.
The machine can accommodate various implements such as rotary tillers and grass cutters at the front and rear, enabling tasks like weeding, snow removal, and cultivating. Opting for crawlers instead of wheels ensures stable operation on slopes and uneven terrain. With no driver's seat, the machine guarantees operator safety during agricultural tasks through remote control. The incorporation of autonomous driving features is also under consideration.
Yanmar AG plans to initiate market monitoring in 2025 and actively progress toward mass production.
