An Electric Tractor for the Farm

It’s not an EV, but an ET — an electric tractor. And it could be ready for farming as soon as this fall. Monarch Tractor, a California-based company, plans to begin shipping its first-of-its-kind fully electric, driver-optional tractor this fall.

Monarch claims the machines will be able to run 10 hours on a full battery, recognize humans and livestock that may get in the way and be programmed to follow a human.

The Monarch starts at $58,000 and recently won a CES 2022 Innovation Award.
