D ass pure electric drives in the future The US agricultural machinery specialist John Deere is showing the concept of SESAM (Sustainable Energy Supply for Agricultural Machinery)

John Deere SESAM with 300 kW output

Externally, the SESAM looks like one conventional tractor, progress beats under the hood. Open sesame - you understand. Where else there is a mighty turbo diesel, John Deere carries a battery BIg pack. The accumulated energy storage system should be able to bunker a full 130 kWh.

To replace the turbodiesel, the technicians have installed two 150 kW electric motors. With a total output of 300 kW (equivalent to 408 PS), the SESAM is sufficiently motorized. John Dere does not provide any further information about the drive or charging times. For agricultural use, high-torque electric motors are predestined from the start, and the weight of the batteries and drive only play a subordinate role here. Further plus points for agriculture are the emission-free operation in the field and the absolutely quiet operation.
