Ditch the Diesel & Save Thousands £’s on Fuel… It’s The End of The Road For Red Diesel
Reducing carbon emissions whilst still maintaining fuel efficiency remains a major issue for many businesses worldwide and has become even more of a concern since the government announced the red diesel ban in 2022. The red diesel ban means users of diesel powered machinery will be paying 2/3 times diesel prices pence on every litre of diesel consumed. While these restrictions on the use of red diesel in many sectors, will unfortunately, have a profound impact on businesses. The Lithium Revolution is here to save the material handling industry.
Lithium-ion batteries are the most planet-friendly of options. More importantly, they are fuel free. While businesses are worried they can’t take advantage of the instant power availability that is offered by fuel, the main advantage of Lithium is it’s charging possibilities. With super-fast charger’s & opportunity charging, this means that during breaks and downtime your Forktruck can be plugged-in, charging up to 80% in around 2 hours. Given the pressure to improve efficiency and deliver 24x7 operations, maintenance and lost time are key concerns - few organizations have the luxury of spare trucks on standby, making reliability a critical consideration. Having no need for ever more expensive fuel, Lithium-ion powered forklift trucks can reduce operating costs by up to 75%.
As the UK became the first major economy in the world to pass laws guaranteeing an end to its contribution to global warming by 2050. More expensive diesel should provide businesses with a much stronger incentive to improve the energy efficiency of their vehicles and machinery. Lithium Electric’s high performing energy cells means that it’s performance is unmatched even by fossil fuel standards. No other power source really stands a chance.
