Russian Terrion tractors set to go on sale in Germany

Russian tractors aren’t seen much in the EU, but two Terrion models (177hp and 265hp) are due to go on sale in Germany next year.

They are made in a separate facility in the Kirowetz factory in St Petersburg but the design is done by Berlin firm ATM United Technologies.

Moreover many of the major components are sourced from household names Tier 3 engines from Deutz, axles from Carraro, gearboxes from ZF and hitch controls from Bosch.

Most of the Terrion output will go to the 100,000 a year Russian market, but there’s also expected to be demand in Europe for a straightforward machine with western technology but minimal electronics that will compete with the likes of Case New Holland and McCormick.
