WINDSOR, CA— Ideanomics Inc. has opened a new electric tractor assembly line at its factory here. It is producing the e25 Soletrac, a compact machine that can operate for three to six hours with a 22-kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery pack.
The facility features state-of-the-at production technology, which the company claims enables “more efficient and safer operations.” The building is also powered by solar panels that supply an average of 80 kWh daily.
"When [we] acquired Solectrac, we committed to growing [its] production capacity and product offerings," says Robin Mackie, president of Ideanomics Mobility. "In less than one year, we efficiently increased production capacity by 300 percent and are now selling Solectrac tractors coast to coast. This is a remarkable accomplishment for any player in the EV space."
Ideanomics acquired Soletrac Inc. last year. It also operates a factory in Denton, NC. Each facility is currently configured to assemble eight tractors per day, with the ability to quickly ramp up assembly as needed.
