The Kubota Group recently unveiled its New Agri Concept vehicle at CES 2024, held in Las Vegas, Nevada last month
Kubota saw CES 2024 as an opportunity to promote its future-oriented corporate stance and exhibited the New Agri Concept, as a part of the future of agriculture envisioned in GMB2030.
The vehicle is fully electric and capable of automated operation. Unlike current automated tractors, it does not require visual monitoring by humans, and can operate autonomously and safely based on information from cameras and sensors. In addition, while ensuring long periods of operation is generally an issue when adopting electric-powered industrial machinery, the vehicle has a quick charging feature capable of recharging the battery from 10% to 80% within six minutes.
The vehicle has been designed for a wide range of applications in the agricultural field, including wine vineyards, with its six independent drive motors and a standard three-point hitch allowing it plough, haul and carry out a broad variety of other tasks.
