The US-American company Ideanomics, which specializes in electric utility vehicles, has commissioned what it claims is the largest assembly plant for electric tractors in North America. The plant in Windsor, California, has the capacity to produce 4,100 electric tractors annually.
The vehicles built in Windsor are from Solectrac, a manufacturer acquired by Ideanomics. Production capacity for the e25 model will triple with the opening of the new plant. The compact electric tractor, with its 22 kWh battery, can be used for between three and six hours, depending on the load.
The Windsor facility will also serve further growth: in 2023, Ideanomics also plans to begin assembling the model e70N at its plants in Windsor, as well as in Denton, North Carolina, and launch new models.
“When Ideanomics acquired Solectrac, we committed to growing Solectrac’s production capacity and product offerings,” said Robin Mackie , president of Ideanomics Mobility. “In less than one year, we efficiently increased production capacity by 300% and are now selling Solectrac tractors coast to coast across the United States through our rapidly expanding dealer showroom program. This is a remarkable accomplishment for any player in the EV space.”
