Energic 580 – Usage larger farms.

As Energic could not afford the large costs involved with with R&D and the developement of a new range of tracteurs, it made more sense to re brand a existing range of quality tracteurs for the French domestic market. They approached the Austrian manufacturer Styer for 2 wheel drive tractors from 1965 with tractor models Energic 520 to 580 (Steyr 180/188/280/288 models – just rebadged Energic)

Energic tracteur rebaged Steyr

Cost in 1/05/1965 28,150 frs.


The biggest engine in the New Energic range.This model was produced in Steyr form from 1958 to 1972 with many modifications. Energic only promoted it for a short period of time from 1965/6 as sales where poor for Energic in this large engined sector, customers preferring Case, Massey Ferguson, Deutz – larger Tracteur manufacturers known for there bigger capacity tracteurs. Originally the moteur was 68cv (alésage 110 mm x course 140 mm), over time the moteur was modified to 78.5 cv – by 1965.This engine was also used in trucks, generators etc.

After the initial new Energic model line up of the 520, 530, 540, 550, 560 and 580 tracteurs was introduced in May 1965, 2 models from this 6 model line up where dropped to streamline the range after a poor start to selling to this different and very competitive market. The line up was then 530, 540 (just narrow/vigneron model), 560 and the huge 580 tracteurs. Sales remained poor and the trading partnership between Energic and Steyr stopped. At this point the Energic range reverted back to smaller tracteurs. The line up included the 511 petrol, the 512 diesel, the 4 RM diesel range, the new second series 519 (with Ramus or MGF hydraulic rear lifts) and the smaller 521 vigneron 2 cylinder tracteur both diesels. These tracteurs where Energic own and represented there last efforts to stay in the small to mid range tracteur market. as the competition increased from very large tracteur brands in there home market.
