Is CLAAS going electric?

High fuel prices have an ag equipment giant exploring options, including electric farm vehicles.

CLAAS North America admits it will be a slow transition as infrastructure has to catch up. Right now, very few farmers have charging stations on their farms, and manufacturers would need to develop technology that could keep large machines running for 12 to 18 hours.

For now, the main focus is on more fuel-efficient diesel engines.
