- From the circuit to the farm: Ideanomics, Energica and Solectrac will design a new generation of electric tractors with the technology of the best electric motorcycle in the world
NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Ideanomics (Nasdaq: IDEX), a global company focused on accelerating commercial adoption of electric vehicles (EVs), today announces that Energica, through its Energica Inside business unit , and Solectrac are starting a technical collaboration on a new generation of electric tractors. Energica Inside will support Solectrac in the development of battery packs, in the development of the Vehicle Control Unit (VCU) and in the assembly and testing of prototypes.
"This is the end game: different teams from across Ideanomics working together to make new and better electric vehicles," said Robin Mackie, president of Ideanomics Mobility. "This is a great example of our approach to smart spending in action. By bringing design, digital and product development into the business, Ideanomics is able to deliver new products faster, better and cheaper. I see great opportunities for further collaboration like this once the VIA acquisition is complete."
The collaboration between Solectrac and Energica Inside in the battery pack development sector is set to increase range, meaning customers can do more with their electric tractors per charge. Thanks to its industry-leading battery technology, Energica motorcycles offer more range than any other electric motorcycle on the market. Energica's VCU is expected to further improve the overall performance and efficiency of Solectrac's next generation of electric tractors.
The new Solectrac tractors will also incorporate the modular and forward-looking styling of Ideanomics Design, as well as telematics and performance data from Ideanomics Digital. Ideanomics expects to introduce a new range of Solectrac tractors in 2023.
"Energica Inside has the potential to become a significant source of revenue," said Livia Cevolini, CEO of Energica. "Governments around the world have made up their minds: the future is electric. For some companies and industries, this transition will not be easy. Through Energica Inside, we will bring our unparalleled electric vehicle expertise to help OEMs achieve electrify its product offering faster, easier and more affordably."
Energica Inside is focused on leveraging Energica's electric vehicle expertise to help other industries get electrified, from agriculture to aviation to maritime. Although this collaboration with Solectrac is Energica Inside's first project, there is already a rich pipeline of companies interested in partnering with Energica Inside. Among them are the first talks with a manufacturer of two-wheelers and another of boats.
Ideanomics is solving the complexity of fleet electrification, giving fleet operators everything they need to electrify faster, easier and more affordably, all in one place.
