Leo Motors will develop the tractor using its proprietary electric powertrain, including an electric motor, controller, battery management system, and power pack, as well as its EV packaging technology.

Leo Motors entered into an agreement with Tong Yang Mulsan Co., Ltd., one of Korea’s largest agricultural machinery companies, to develop electric tractors using the body and chassis from Tong Yang’s internal-combustion engine tractors. Leo will develop the tractor using its proprietary electric powertrain, including an electric motor, controller, battery management system, and power pack, as well as its electric-car packaging technology. When development is complete, Leo Motors—a U.S. public company based near Seoul, Korea, that develops, manufactures, and sells electric vehicle (EV) powertrains and components—will have the opportunity to market its powertrains to Tong Yang.
