STEYR Konzept Hybrid Tractor Drone
We have seen the future of tractors, and it’s the STEYR Konzept. Unlike other tractors, this one takes a serial hybrid approach whereby a compact 4.5-liter 4-cylinder unit, works at optimal speed as an energy generator, charging batteries. Why is that significant? Well, the engine is disconnected from the wheels, and traction is provided by four independent electric motors directly installed in the wheel hubs.

Aesthetically, it features a traditional external white cab structure and the inclusion of an asymmetrical grille. Inside, the minimalist design language is paired with advanced display projection technology that allow the operating parameters to be projected onto the front transparent screens to enhance overall operator visibility. Where does the drone come in? When full autonomous mode is activated, the drone is sent ahead of the tractor to transmit real-time data back to its central computing unit and crop reading sensors.
