Indicating that the batteries in the world are made in China due to the raw material used, Yol explained that they established a partnership in this country for the production of batteries of the electric tractor.

Emphasizing that the life of batteries is enough to be filled and used approximately 4 thousand times, Yol said that this corresponds to approximately 12 years according to usage. Yol expressed that with the additions made to the batteries, they could increase the service life to 20 years.

The most important element is the software. It is useless without software. It is the most advanced in the world. we are on the level.”
