Valtra G Series Red Dot 2021

Valtra model G135 has won the prestigious Red Dot 2021 design award. This marks already the sixth Red Dot in Valtra’s history.

The award demonstrates how Valtra’s success story continues with the latest, fifth generation of tractors. The G135 is the first tractor in the new generation, in what could be considered a new product segment.

It takes a particularly high-quality product to win the Red Dot Design award. The criteria for winning takes into consideration both design and innovativeness. The Valtra G Series was praised for its exceptional quality in both. Launched in August 2020, the G Series has already earlier been awarded with the Tractor of the Year 2021 prize.

The G Series combines compact size with agility and a modern design. It is the perfect tractor for front-loader tasks. Work is facilitated by easy and unobstructed access to the cab via self-cleaning steps. The cabin is comfortable and spacious fot two people. With a combined glass area of 5.7 square metres, the cab provides excellent visibility in all directions, including upwards.

ED Design has had the honor of working as Valtra’s design partner of choice for decades.
