ISEKI LAWN TRACTORS ADOPT FORSEE POWER’S ULTRA-VERSATILE ZEN 8 SLIM BATTERY SYSTEM
The vehicles will integrate ZEN 8 SLIM, a versatile and ultra-slim battery pack developed by Forsee Power engineers to service the off-highway market.
Forsee Power, an expert in smart battery systems for sustainable electromobility, announces that Iseki – Japan’s major agricultural machinery manufacturing company – has chosen to equip its first electric lawn tractors with Forsee Power’s battery systems.
Iseki to launch their SXGE2 electric riding lawn mowers in Europe in 2023
Iseki benefits from a high market share in Europe for riding lawn mowers dedicated to professional users. The new electric riding lawn mower, SXGE2, will be introduced in Europe, where environmental regulations drive fast machinery electrification.
SXGE2 was designed based on the successful diesel-engine version SXG216 which has already met great success with the European landscape maintenance market. Iseki is expecting great demand for the zero-emission version.
ZEN 8 SLIM pursues its commercial success with the off-highway market
Each Iseki’s riding lawn mower will integrate one ZEN 8 SLIM battery pack, vertically positioned, and located in the motor block at the front of the vehicle.
Forsee Power’s ZEN 8 SLIM battery offer was designed to electrify 100% battery off-highway and light vehicles. The batteries are only 128mm thin and can be integrated in both vertical and horizontal positions, which is a tremendous asset to electrify vehicles that were designed for thermal engine powertrains.
The ZEN 8 SLIM batteries offer an excellent energy density of 251 Wh/ L – among the best available on the market – to ensure all-day operations with one single charge.
Forsee Power battery systems are fully designed by Forsee Power teams and manufactured in Europe, Asia-Pacific and soon in North America.
