Kalmar launches medium electric forklift

Kalmar is to introduce a medium electric forklift powered by lithium-ion battery technology as part of a plan to offer an electric version of every product in its portfolio by 2021.

It is the first forklift in the medium-capacity range to be powered by Li-ion batteries, and the battery technology will initially be available for several models with a wheelbase of 3,500 mm.

Stefan Hultqvist, vice president forklifts at Kalmar: “Demand for electrically powered forklifts is rising all the time, and now we can offer our customers even greater convenience and environmental performance in the medium lifting capacity range.”
