    Husqvarna Panthera Leo demonstrates our innovation capacity and ambition
to develop high performing products with less environmental impact, says
Magnus Yngen, President and CEO of Husqtrevarna.
    Husqvarna Panthera Leo is a hybrid made up of two ride-on mowers, Rider
and Zero-Turn. A battery that can be charged at any electrical outlet has
replaced the traditional gas engine. Five powerful electrical motors partnered
with a sound absorbing cutting deck, allow the Husqvarna Panthera Leo to glide
effortlessly and silently across your lawn. The three individually suspended
cutting decks enables this mower to mow smoothly over bumpier parts of your
garden, avoiding lawn scalping. The cutting decks each have razor sharp blades
for a close cut finish and can be controlled to suit wide or narrow lawns
(from 85cm up to 120cm).
    All functions and are managed via paddles on the steering wheel. Via an
LCD-display gardeners are told everything they need to know to achieve a
perfect lawn, from how fast they are driving, cutting height, cutting width,
remaining battery time, service needs and warns the user about objects that
are too close. With the help of sensors, Husqvarna Panthera Leo can recommend
the most suitable speed and cutting height for the perfect lawn.
    Husqvarna is the leader in several areas in terms of products with
reduced environmental impact. The Group's new engines comply with the
strictest exhaust-emission criteria in the US and Europe.
