Battery technologies are at the core of future electric mobility. The progress in these technologies covering the whole value chain into the product and the entire circular economy: the exploration, mining and processing of raw materials, battery design and production, use and end-of-life product management.
Lead-acid batteries are the most common large-capacity rechargeable batteries. They are very popular because they are dependable and inexpensive on a cost-per-watt basis. Only few other batteries deliver bulk power as cheaply as lead-acid, and this makes the battery cost-effective for tractors.
The main policy challenges related to battery technologies is the improvement in competitiveness, promotion of circular economy and decrease in the dependency upon imported raw materials.
Europe has been active in formulating development strategies for battery technologies, even though they rely on several raw materials that primarily depend on import and policy actions and fleet emission regulations to facilitate the implementation of the recent technologies.
Charge and discharge efficiency is a performance scale that can be used to assess battery efficiency. Lithium secondary batteries have the highest charge and discharge efficiency, at 95%, while lead storage batteries are at about 60%–70%.
The development of electric-powered equipment and vehicles is expected to continue to increase in the coming years. As such, over the past several years, many component manufacturers have begun diversifying their product portfolios to include an upgraded battery for tractors.
Continuing investments in Li-ion technologies are leading to batteries that perform better against multiple attributes, especially energy density and cycle life.
The resulting improvements in battery range, price, and model availability will foster rapid, near-term acceleration of consumer adoption of the batteries.
The global tractor battery market is estimated at $XX Billion in 2022 , growing at XX% CAGR till 2030.
John Deere 8R/8RT Tractor line is equipped with a time-saving battery disconnect switch that allows operators to disconnect battery power to the entire tractor without having to disconnect battery cables. The batteries undergo vibration tests under SAE standards using the highest quality materials and state-of-the-art technology with high-quality construction and computer-designed internal and external components.
Manufacturers are now furnishing their top line-up with the latest in-cab features and real-time data monitoring systems, selecting Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) technology battery which requires handling high-frequency stopping, starting, and regenerative braking.
