Japanese tractor manufacturer Kubota plans to launch the world’s first hydrogen-powered fuel cell tractor in 2025.

According to Nikkei Asia, Kubota will launch the fuel cell tractor on the European and American markets.

Kubota is currently in the process of developing medium to large fuel cell tractors ranging from 50 to 100 horsepower. Nikkei Asia reports these are expected to be priced around 40% higher than leading diesel-powered alternatives.

Kubota plans to have a prototype of its fuel cell tractor ready in 2023.
