Equipped with CNG technology, the tractor adeptly handles various agricultural and haulage applications, matching the capabilities of existing diesel tractors. Mahindra’s CNG tractor features four tanks with a water capacity of 45 liters each, or 24kg of gas onboard, filled at 200-bar pressure. Anticipated savings of Rs 100 per hour over diesel tractors further underscore its economic appeal.
