The MK-V tractor is the world’s first fully electric, self-driving tractor—poised to make the lives of farmers easier, safer, more sustainable, and more profitable. Its parent company, Monarch Tractor, estimates that a customer in California conducting mowing, tilling, and discing can save $79,000 annually on fuel alone, and an additional $120,000 on labor thanks to automation. CEO and co-founder Praveen Penmesta says Monarch worked directly with farmers to make the MK-V “familiar, easy to use, and able to keep up with the rigors of farming.”
