Electric vehicles for agriculture: the future is green, silent and sustainable


11 May 2023

To reduce air pollution, improve energy efficiency, build carbon-neutral realities, and raise awareness about environmental issues. The agricultural sector is becoming increasingly responsible and embracing the ecological transition, which is now the guiding principle driving all sectors towards a low environmental impact future.

Ecological efficiency has become one of the essential requirements in production processes, agricultural equipment, field intervention vehicles, and logistic chains connecting different agricultural entities. Exploring cultivations or attending agricultural trade shows reveals that sustainability is no longer an optional choice, but an essential requirement for doing business.

There are numerous directions to explore when seeking concrete minimization of the environmental impact of agricultural production. One of the most promising approaches is the production of energy-efficient yet highly productive vehicles. Italy is currently at the forefront of the race towards electrifying agricultural machinery and equipment for cultivation and green management. It is manufacturers with a long-standing history like Del Morino that are driving the innovations ready to revolutionize the sector in the near future. Discover the RINO Electric revolution!


RINO Electric, Italian Innovation

The RINO Electric brand was born in the heart of Tuscany, combining Del Morino’s extensive experience with a desire to revolutionize the concept of efficiency with new parameters. Our multifunctional vehicles are full-electric solutions that possess essential characteristics for optimal electric tractors.
Their incredible green power combines with excellent working autonomy, zero emissions, unbeatable acoustic comfort, unmistakable Made in Italy design, and cost savings in usage and maintenance. RINO Electric’s mission? To become the partner that can accompany professionals and businesses in modern agriculture towards a concrete and tangible green transition.

Why choose RINO Electric tractors for agriculture?

RINO Electric vehicles are perfect for those who want to experience the benefits of sustainability without compromising on practicality, durability, and motor performance.
Why are full-electric tractors perfect for agriculture and complex tasks like vineyard management?

  • Because they are powered solely by clean electric energy and preserve the quality of crops by eliminating the emissions of polluting particles into the air. Eliminating emissions from traditional vehicles is one of the primary objectives of the ecological revolution, and according to recent estimates, electric vehicles generate 10% to 46% less greenhouse gases when compared to gasoline or diesel vehicles. These significant figures are bringing the agricultural sector closer to the ambitious goal of achieving 100% CO² neutrality.
  • Electric-powered vehicles also reduce intervention costs by utilizing one of the most cost-effective energy sources, which is part of the renewable resources destined to shape the future of our planet. Electric motors have significantly higher energy efficiency compared to gasoline or diesel engines (electric motor efficiency can reach up to 90%), offering clear advantages over the medium to long term.

The green nature of RINO Electric vehicles is accompanied by exceptional build quality, resulting in lower maintenance needs and longer lifespan. Electric motors are less prone to wear and tear and have fewer issues compared to internal combustion engines, resulting in lower periodic maintenance costs. By employing these vehicles, the need for labor is reduced, and their resale value remains stable over time, making electric tractors a sustainable investment.

  • Our 100% electric vehicles are powered by the latest generation 48V lithium-ion batteries, ensuring previously unthinkable working autonomy. For example, RINO can operate continuously for up to 6 hours, and its battery lasts up to 11 hours in motion, while CaRINO has a 4-hour working autonomy and can operate for 20 hours without interruptions. To recharge them, simply connect them to a domestic or industrial power grid. They can also be equipped with solar charging systems. These vehicles are ideal for intensive or semi-intensive work sessions in any type of cultivation.
  • RINO Electric vehicles have compact dimensions and high maneuverability. They can navigate terrains with a maximum inclination of 15% and are not afraid of challenging working conditions. This versatility makes them perfect for various agricultural applications and suitable for interventions in vineyards located on rugged terrains with diverse cultivation methods.
  • The use of green electric energy makes these vehicles extremely quiet, adding acoustic comfort as an essential advantage of full-electric tractors. This is especially important for operators and crucial when working in cultivated areas near residences and urban centers.


Vehicle Configuration Possibilities

The Italian quality and robustness of RINO Electric tractors are complemented by a wide range of configurations and accessories, making these vehicles highly flexible in agricultural applications.
Firstly, the evolution of RINO Electric has led us to design and produce different models of full-electric tractors, such as RINO and CaRINO. These models offer equally outstanding performance but with different technical specifications adaptable to any work context. Additionally, we have created a selection of accessories that significantly enhance the capabilities of these tractors, transforming them into machinery tailored to the specific needs of their users.

When seeking to make field interventions more green and environmentally friendly, exploring the opportunities in the RINO Electric catalog allows you to transform our efficient tractors with work accessories such as:

  • lawn mowers;
  • shredders;
  • weed brushes;
  • flail mowers;
  • integrated bins;
  • trailers;
  • and numerous other accessories currently under development (such as chippers, plows, tillers, rotary harrows, and excavators).

In addition to utilizing a fleet of top-of-the-line vehicles, it is also possible to create the perfect vehicle based on the needs of the agricultural company that will employ it in their specific cultivation practices. This allows for tailoring the timing and methods of the ecological transformation to each individual entity, adapting to their resources, budget, and sustainability-oriented action plan.

Why Choose RINO Electric Vehicles?

Our constant investment in research makes our brand one of the pioneers of Italian-made electric vehicles, with a fleet that is already finding applications beyond national borders. Numerous European entities are already putting our full-electric tractors to the test, achieving tremendous success in terms of productivity, sustainability, and cost savings.
What convinces the market is our team’s 140 years of experience: While the RINO Electric brand was born in recent years, it is the result of Del Morino’s extensive experience and know-how, committed to designing agricultural equipment since 1875. What sets us apart in our vision of the future is the artisanal quality of our products and our commitment to making decisions based on social and environmental responsibility towards the surrounding territory and, by extension, the planet.
