Solectrac has launched a reservation program for its all-electric tractors. With a $?1000 deposit customers can now reserve their place in the productions line.
Solectrac says demand has grown quickly for the company’s first to market all-electric tractors. That’s why the California-based company announced its new reservation campaign.
With a $ 1000 deposit, reduced from fifty percent of the total cost, customers can now reserve their place in the productions line. “We‘ve decided to decrease the initial deposit to allow customers to express their interest and intent. This is good for our customers and good for our production line,” said Steve Heckeroth, Solectrac CEO/Founder.
After investments from Ideanomics last year, Solectrac has grown their manufacturing capabilities to ramp up production.
The company is taking reservations for its 40 HP-equivalent eUtility tractor and the 4-wheel drive 30 HP-equivalent compact electric tractor (CET). Both tractors are built to outperform their diesel counterparts by eliminating exhaust and noise and with the benefit of instant torque at low RPM. Solectrac tractors accommodate existing implements.
The electric tractors can be charged either from the utility grid or from renewable energy, like solar and wind.
