“We will enable farmers globally to produce more with mechanised farming products and solutions,”said Escorts MD Nikhil Nanda.

“Escorts will continue to showcase innovations through Escorts Exclusive Disruptive Innovation Platform year on year.”

The electric product will take another 12-18 months before it’s ready for validation, customer experience tests. It will be ready for commercialisation in 3-4 years.

“If need be, we will work with global partners for design and technology,” said Shailendra Agarwal, chief executive, operations & R&D, Escorts.

“Once the product is ready to be tested out, we may go in for design or technology partnerships along with our in-house knowhow.”

The electric tractor will target global markets like the US, Europe, South East Asia, South Africa and India.
