John Deere battery and hybrid diesel-electric powertrains
John Deere sees a growing demand for battery power as a single or hybrid propulsion system for special equipment and agricultural vehicles, such as tractors, Gator off-road vehicles and dump trucks.
John Deere is investing significant resources in technologies that will reduce the company’s carbon footprint.
One such investment, was John Deere’s purchase of a majority stake in Kreisel Electric, an Austrian-based provider and developer of battery technology, which develops highly reliable electric battery modules and batteries, as well as charging infrastructure.
John Deere also recently announced its immediate investment in two additional facilities to increase Kreisel’s production capacity, beginning with the opening of a new facility at the John Deere plant in Saranac, the main John Deere engine manufacturing site in Europe. John Deere will also invest in battery assembly in the United States as part of a project to move John Deere manufacturing from China to the United States. In doing so, it will increase Kreisel’s battery manufacturing capacity by more than 2 GWh.
John Deere is committed to its sustainability agenda and is committed to offering its customers the most advanced, affordable and efficient renewable fuel solutions. At John Deere, we are committed to making the transition to renewable fuels for our engines as easy as possible. As part of this program, Deere has invested in ClearFlame Engine Technologies, a Chicago-based startup that develops clean engines.
John Deere has also made its current engines compatible with renewable fuels, with Ethanol, BioDiesel and biofuels such as hydrogenated vegetable oil (HVO).
