The New Holland Methane Powered Concept Tractor won the first ever ‘Sustainable Tractor of the Year 2020’ award

 New Holland Agriculture, a global agricultural brand of CNH Industrial N.V (NYSE: CNHI / MI: CNHI), has won the inaugural ‘Sustainable Tractor of the Year 2020’ award at Agritechnica 2019, the world’s largest agricultural trade show, currently taking place in Hannover, Germany.

The T6 Methane Power, the world’s first production methane tractor, was unveiled at the show and its precursor, the T6 Methane Powered Concept tractor, clinched the much coveted prize. The Tractor of the Year jury comprises journalists specializing in agricultural mechanization, representing leading European agricultural publications from 24 countries.

The T6 Methane Power is the culmination of New Holland’s pioneering work on the use of alternative fuels through its Clean Energy Leader strategy, and it is a significant step forward on the path to decarbonizing agriculture. Commercially available in 2020, it offers economic and practical advantages, which are further enhanced when using biomethane.

Its outstanding performance comes in an exceptionally eco-friendly package, delivering up to 30% lower running costs. In real field conditions the T6 Methane Power tractor produces 99% less particulate matter than an equivalent diesel configuration, and reduces CO2 emissions by minimum 10% and overall emissions by 80%. This 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.
