SANTA ROSA, Calif. — Solectrac, makers of all-electric tractors and an operating company of Ideanomics (NASDAQ: IDEX), announces the continued expansion of its certified sales and dealer partnership network with the addition of Columbiana Tractor, LLC., located in Westover, Ala. This announcement marks the first certified retail location in the southeastern region for Solectrac. With this new dealer partnership, Solectrac and Columbiana Tractor will deliver sustainable, electric tractor solutions to serve the region's agricultural customers, hobby farmers, rural lifestylers and first-time tractor buyers. With Columbiana Tractor's end-to-end sales, financing, and service options, customers will be able to reduce their total cost of ownership without sacrificing safety, performance and reliability. Over the next few months, Columbiana Tractors will offer Solectrac's full lineup of electric tractors, starting with the e25 compact electric tractor and later the award-winning e70N, a powerful, narrow electric tractor purposely built for vineyards and commercial farms, variants and other products.
With the global electric farm tractor market expected to exceed $218M by 2026, this new announcement supports Solectrac's national strategy to bring the benefits of zero-emission tractors with low maintenance charge options directly to the buyer via trusted dealerships located within their region. From hobby farms to utility applications, Solectrac's award-winning tractors allow farmers to power their tractors by using clean, renewable energy sources with the same productivity and performance as tractors using traditional fuels.
"Solectrac's award-winning all-electric tractors continue to see increased demand across a range of agricultural and farm applications," said Mani Iyer, CEO of Solectrac. "We are excited to have Columbiana Tractor as a valuable partner as we continue to build our dealership network across the United States. The importance of the southeast region as a customer base and the trusted sales and service of Columbiana Tractors made Columbiana a natural fit for our next dealer location. As Solectrac continues to grow and scale, we look forward to making electric tractors a sustainable option and the tractor option of choice for the agriculture and farm industry. By expanding our dealer network, our goal is to significantly increase our sales in 2022."
Founded in 2017, by managing partners Chris Mundy and Jeff Adams, Columbiana Tractor's core business philosophy is built around investing in the customer. The company provides sales, finance experts, service technicians, and knowledgeable parts and accessories staff to provide superior customer service and support to the region.
"Columbiana Tractor is committed to offering the most innovative equipment solutions for our customer base here in the greater Alabama area," said Chris Mundy, managing partner and founder of Columbiana Tractor, LLC. "With our recent expansion into a new facility, we prioritized reaching out to Solectrac as part of our next phase of sustainable farming and agricultural solutions for the region. The capabilities of performance of these electric tractors provide real value for efficient operations."
