Unleashing a new era of agricultural innovation, tractor brand Sonalika on December 23 launched India’s first field-ready electric tractor, Tiger Electric.
The latest technology marvel, said a press release, has been designed in Europe and developed in-house with proven aggregates to deliver seamless power as well as emission-free, noiseless farming.
Sonalika Tiger Electric is powered by a state-of-the-art IP67- compliant 25.5 kW natural cooling compact battery to ensure 1/4th running costs against the traditionally-used diesel. Its battery can be fully charged with a regular home charging point in 10 hours.
The energy efficient Etrac motor of Tiger Electric offers high power density and high peak torque with zero RPM drop for optimal performance. The German design motor ensures 100 per cent torque availability at 100 pc times that powers the tractor for fastest pick-up across any load conditions.
The tractor has been made available for booking at an introductory price of Rs. 5.99 lakh (ex-showroom).
Mr. Raman Mittal, Executive Director, Sonalika Group, said, “Sonalika Tractors has always been at the forefront of innovation and continues to offer best-in-class technology to the farmers across the globe, especially Europe and USA. Our promise to every Indian farmer to constantly provide technological evolutions to enhance farm productivity and profitability comes packaged with Tiger Electric, where we have bridged the gap between concept and being field-ready, while keeping pace with global benchmarks in farm mechanisation technology.”
Tiger Electric is manufactured at Sonalika’s manufacturing plant at Hoshiarpur, in Punjab.
