New Holland wins 2018 Good Design® Award for its Methane Powered Concept Tractor
New Holland’s Methane Powered Concept Tractor features a powertrain that uses a groundbreaking efficient combustion technology specifically developed for agriculture applications by FPT Industrial, a brand of CNH Industrial that has pioneered natural gas traction for more than 20 years. The 6-cylinder NEF methane engine delivers the same power and torque as its standard diesel equivalent, together with up to 30% running cost savings and around 50% reduction in drive-by-noise. In real field conditions, the methane powered concept tractor produces at least 10% lower CO2 emissions and reduces overall emissions by 80% compared to a standard diesel tractor. Its environmental performance further improves when fuelled by biomethane produced from crop residues and waste from farm-grown energy crops, which results in virtually zero CO2 emissions. The Methane Powered Concept Tractor creates a vital link that closes the loop in the Energy Independent Farm™’s virtuous cycle by running on the energy produced from the land and waste products, making New Holland’s vision for the sustainable future of farming achievable today.
