CNH Industrial Presents First Electric Tractor Prototype with Autonomous Features

Zero emissions farming solution enhances value and delivers next step in the Company’s innovation plan

CNH Industrial revealed the New Holland T4 Electric Power – the industry’s first all-electric light utility tractor prototype with autonomous features – at its Tech Day in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. 

A concentrated effort between our team of experts in the USA (Burr Ridge, Detroit) and Italy (Modena) was able to halve this prototype’s development time thanks to collaboration with our strategic partner Monarch Tractor – an electrified Ag innovator based in California, USA. Our expertise and resources, in conjunction with Monarch’s disruptive technology, made this world-first result possible.

This product milestone is the latest development in our strategic plan for electrification. The prototype presented is branded New Holland Agriculture, while the commercial model will also extend to our Case IH Brand. It follows the launch of the multi award-winning e-Source power pack – an external generator for electric farm implements.

“The T4 Electric Power is the ideal solution for lower horsepower operations. It is suited to mixed farm, livestock, municipality, orchard and specialty applications. We know our customers are eager to adopt this type of product, so it makes perfect sense for us to continue our Ag electrification journey with this platform,” explains Marc Kermisch, Chief Digital & Information Officer, CNH Industrial.

The finer details: Power/ Performance / Precision

This First-Generation Battery Electric Light Vehicle belongs to the utility tractor segment. Commercial production is expected to begin at the end of 2023 with a broader product offering to follow.

PowerE-Motor peak: Up to 120hp –Max Torque: Up to 440Nm

4-wheel drive: Yes –Max Speed:40 kph –Zero Emissions: Always

Depending on the mission profile, the tractor’s battery pack delivers up to a full day of operation. It takes just one hour to reach 100% power when using commercially available fast charging systems. The tractor’s electrical outlets support daily farm tasks such as welding and drilling. It doubles as a backup power generator for daily or emergency needs. And it provides energy for electric implements. Traditional mechanical, hydraulic and Power Take Off implements can also be used.


In testing, the T4 Electric Power showed exceptional performance compared to a conventional diesel tractor. Its superb responsiveness makes it more aggressive, efficient and provides greater traction control. Smoother shuttling and gear shifts make it even more of a pleasure to drive. It also reduces operating costs by up to 90% for our customers, thanks to eliminating diesel fuel costs and associated maintenance fees.

And it’s quiet. Noise is reduced by up to 90% and vibration is also substantially dampened. This respects stringent municipal noise regulations, allows for nighttime operation, and improves livestock wellbeing, especially when working inside covered areas such as barns.


What makes this tractor a world first are its autonomous features and automated capabilities. Together these technologies provide leading solutions that support operators of all skill levels.

The T4 Electric Power’s roof houses sensors, cameras and control units which enable its advanced autonomous and automated features. Farmers can remotely activate the tractor via a smartphone app. Shadow Follow Me mode lets operators sync machines to work together. A 360-degree perception system detects and avoids obstacles. Telematics and auto guidance keep all functions in check for operators. Fleet Management lets the farm manager assign tasks to each piece of equipment. Implement recognition ensures the tractor seamlessly links up with the required attachment. And offboard digital services let farmers run the tractor from anywhere, at any time, while monitoring its performance and battery level.

CNH Industrial’s global Design Team have styled our alternative power portfolio. The T4 Electric Power on display features the New Holland Clean Blue color – also present on the new T7 Methane Power LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) launched at Tech Day. Their illuminated leaf emblem and signature taillights mark a clear distinction from the aesthetics of conventional diesel tractors.

The T4 Electric Power joins the New Holland T7 Methane Power LNG and T6 Methane Power tractors for an alternative source portfolio that further demonstrates CNH Industrial’s commitment to sustainably advancing agriculture for the world’s farmers.

New Holland Agriculture Debuts World’s First LNG Tractor

The importance of energy is at a historic peak. New and efficient ways of generating, using, and storing energy are required to address this global issue.

CNH Industrial keeps its customers moving forward with smart and sustainable equipment and services. Always advancing and evolving to deliver future-proof solutions for farmers, the Company’s long-term R&D investment in alternative fuels is part of what makes us the industry leader in agriculture.

Our global New Holland Agriculture brand has long championed alternative fuels as the future of farming, establishing its Clean Energy Leader Strategy in 2006. Since then, the brand has accumulated vast experience and expertise in this area, developing concepts, prototypes and ultimately the first ever commercialized natural gas tractor: the New Holland T6 Methane Power.

Today, the brand unveils the next step in its Clean Energy journey with the T7 Methane Power LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) pre-production prototype tractor.

T7 LNG: the right blend of autonomy, power, comfort and opportunity

A farm’s carbon footprint is a major factor in determining its sustainability. And farmers still need powerful tractors that can run around the clock. Natural gas, and especially biomethane, are presently the ideal solutions to guarantee higher horsepower machine performance, while also lowering emissions and reducing operating costs.

The T7 Methane Power LNG will more than double the autonomy compared to a CNG design whilst boosting overall farm sustainability. In comparison to the T6 Methane Power CNG, this is a fourfold increase in fuel capacity. LNG is also a key facilitator for the expansion of CNH Industrial’s broader future natural gas portfolio, particularly towards larger and heavier agricultural equipment, as well as construction equipment.

The T7 Methane Power LNG pre-production prototype offers unparalleled performance for an alternative fuel tractor. With its 270hp, it delivers the same power and torque as a diesel tractor while delivering autonomy without the need for any extra tanks. It is also more sustainable, being better than carbon neutral when powered by Liquefied Biomethane sourced from livestock manure/slurry.

Bennamann: a winning partnership and scalable solution for all farms

CNH Industrial values alliances with innovative and disruptive industry players to accelerate time to market for new technologies. To spearhead this latest development, we partnered with Bennamann, a UK-based expert in solutions to capture and repurpose fugitive methane emissions for energy use. Our work together began in March 2021, when we acquired a minority stake in Bennamann Ltd., its research, development, engineering and manufacturing arm. We became their exclusive strategic agricultural technology partner and this cooperation has quickly established concrete future benefits for our customers and the environment.

Bennamann’s multi-patented approach prevents methane from entering the atmosphere (methane is more than 80 times more harmful to global warming than CO2 when measured over 20 years) by ultimately converting it into Liquefied Fugitive Methane (LFM) for use as a ‘better than zero carbon’ biofuel. This solution can significantly reduce the carbon footprint of an average dairy farm by preventing the direct emission of methane from slurry lagoons and tanks, as well as providing a range of additional benefits. These include reducing the use of CO2 intensive chemical fertilizers, the displacement of fossil fuel use in tractors, electricity generation and heat provision, and a reduction in the need for slurry spreading. The CO2 reduction for a 120-cow farm is potentially equivalent to around 100 western households.

How it works:

A tried-and-tested energy independent sustainable farm system sees collected livestock manure transferred to a covered slurry lagoon or tank, where the emitted fugitive methane (alongside other polluting gases) is captured, subsequently being purified and converted into liquefied methane using a processing unit. A liquification unit can simply be bolted on to an existing CNG processing unit for further flexibility – ideal for farms which already produce their own biomethane.

Bennamann’s patented non-venting cryogenic storage tanks keep the methane as a liquid at -162°C, producing a new source of clean power for the T7 Methane Power LNG tractor. Furthermore, this technology enables LNG to be transported, similar to diesel, to wherever it is required, meaning farms which do not have the ability to produce LNG on-site can still benefit from its advantages, as well as enabling flexible in-field refueling during intense operational windows.

When this prototype tractor is integrated within Bennamann’s on-farm liquid fugitive biomethane production process, it is possible for an operation’s overall carbon footprint to be ‘better than zero.’ The tractor’s surrounding environment also benefits from a significant reduction in drive-by noise levels, making it perfect for tasks near livestock or in urban areas.

As a result, the combined expertise and resources of CNH Industrial and Bennamann enable farmers everywhere to fully integrate this scalable and affordable Energy Independent system on their farms. It also provides new opportunities and revenue streams to monetize or repurpose their waste. These include: fuel production at a stable cost; sale of excess biomethane on the open market; generation of 100% natural fertilizer; and conversion of excess methane into electricity for export to a grid or local use. The opportunity for electricity generation is key – this can be used to run electric vehicles (future agricultural machines alongside existing cars and vans) as well as powering the farm, which in remote rural areas, with restricted electric power, could unlock future expansion.

T7 Methane Power LNG: ingenious design, productivity and tech

The T7 Methane Power LNG pre-production prototype is the latest demonstration of CNH Industrial Breaking New Ground by developing a world first that will better enable farmers to be more sustainable, energy independent and productive, all while improving their bottom lines.

Beyond its energy efficiency and notable environmental credentials, this machine is equipped with bold and functional future-facing enhancements to marry ‘Great Iron’ with ‘Great Tech’.

An inspired aesthetic from CNH Industrial’s in-house Design Team presents a tractor that is ahead of its time, with a new ‘Clean Blue’ color accenting sustainable alternative fuels. The all-new exterior features fit with the Brand’s new signature design style, which can be seen in the reimagined bonnet with the illuminated New Holland iconic leaf. The exterior is completed by powerful LED taillights with incorporated signature leaf, a C-Pillar illuminated leaf and gloss black wheels with custom Clean Blue accents. The cab incorporates a full length skydome roof for enhanced visibility and greater sense of space. The innovative SideWinderTM Ultra armrest, new larger IntelliViewTM 12 touchscreen and the CentreViewTM fixed hub steering wheel mounted display makes work intuitive – while the ergonomically shaped seats in leather and Alcantara with contrasting stripe and embroidered logo, look sporty as well as being comfortable.

The patented active temperature-controlled fuel system developed for this pre-production prototype incorporates a stainless-steel cryogenic tank that is expertly molded to match its diesel counterparts, maximizing space and effectively storing LNG within a working tractor. The system has a self-supporting vacuum space that insulates the fuel within and reduces the tank’s thickness. Refueling is as easy as that of a diesel tractor. Once out in the field, the tanks’ active temperature control ensures that the engine runs smoothly.

Equipped with New Holland’s latest precision technology – PLM Intelligence – this prototype, just like New Holland’s full production fleet, enables the farmer to easily command cutting-edge guidance programs, analyze all field data and stay wirelessly connected with both the field below and key locations across the farm. These important features result in a further boost to productivity and sustainability, allowing our customers total control over their operations and the power to make data-driven decisions.

All of the new technology present in the T7 Methane Power LNG has been put through its paces on a variety of farms across many different applications. This premiere is the first step towards serial production and commercialization of the world’s first LNG tractor, complementing New Holland’s existing T6 Methane Power and CNH Industrial’s wider alternative power portfolio.

New Holland Releases New T6.180 Methane Power Tractor for U.S. Market

New Holland Agriculture North America announced on Feb. 8, 2022 the U.S. launch of the world’s first production T6 Methane Power tractor. The launch is a culmination of a multiyear development project to create and bring to market a tractor lineup that furthers the use of more sustainable fuel sources in U.S. agriculture.

“The T6.180 Methane Power is the result of New Holland’s pioneering work on the use of alternative fuels through our Clean Energy Leader strategy. It is a significant step forward on the path to decarbonizing agriculture, and it is happening now, as the development of this sustainable tractor has reached its production phase. It is commercially available to our customers beginning this 2022 season,” commented Michael Cornman, Livestock and Dairy Segment Manager for New Holland Agriculture North America.

The same performance as diesel with up to 30% lower running costs

The T6 Methane Power delivers the performance of its diesel equivalent — the same power at 180 hp, torque at 740 Nm and durability — with the added advantage of up to 30% reduction in running costs. It also offers operators fuel flexibility and can run on either biomethane or compressed natural gas (CNG).

Compared to emission limits allowed under European Stage V emission regulations, the T6 Methane Power produces 98% less particulate matter. When running biomethane, it can provide a 10 to 15% reduction in CO2 for a negative emission profile. A simple, maintenance-free, three-way catalyst is used for aftertreatment, eliminating the need for exhaust gas recirculation and selective catalytic reduction components, as well as diesel exhaust fluid.

The T6 Methane Power features an all-new NEF 6.7-liter engine specifically developed for agricultural applications by FPT Industrial and benefits from the company’s 20+ years of experience in natural gas powertrain technology development. To date, FPT Industrial has produced more than 50,000 natural gas engines.

On the T6 Methane Power, the gas tanks with 49 gallons of capacity are stored in the same position as the diesel tanks on the standard T6 model. This maintains the excellent visibility from the cab and results in no restrictions in access. Fuel storage under the cab has been optimized, ensuring current production tire size offerings and track width settings. Additional options such as mid-mount valves are also available. For extended periods between fill ups, the front-mounted range extender offers an additional 71 gallons of fuel capacity with a bolted connection to a port on the front of the tractor. The tractor is also fitted with gas connection points at the front and rear, enabling additional fuel storage that could be mounted on trailers and implements.

T6 Methane Power with biomethane: The next step toward zero-carbon farming

The T6 Methane Power tractor is a key element in New Holland’s Energy Independent Farm concept, closing the loop of a true circular economy, from fields to energy generation and back to fields, a complete CO2-neutral cycle.

Farmers can grow energy crops and use agricultural waste to generate biomethane and power their T6 Methane Power tractor with this sustainable fuel to achieve near-zero CO2 emissions. Livestock and dairy farmers can take this virtuous cycle even further by producing biomethane from manure, which subtracts CO2 from the environment, resulting in a carbon-negative footprint.

Farmers can also use the byproducts of bio digestion as natural fertilizers on their fields, orchards, or vineyards, closing the circular economy loop.

T6 Methane Power Tractor making first U.S. appearance at 2022 World Ag Expo

The T6 Methane Power tractor will make its public U.S. debut at the 2022 World Ag Expo, February 8-10, 2022, in Tulare, California. It will be on display in the New Holland booth in the south exhibits at the International Agri-Center.
