BYD, world’s leading New Energy Vehicle (NEV) manufacturer, comes to ITT Hub with much more than the best-selling electric bus in key markets around the world; it also brings over 26-years of pioneering expertise in delivering its ‘total solutions for eMobility’; including its electric battery innovation, solar power generation and utilisation, New Energy management, charging, software, and also automotive manufacturing across multiple industries.
BYD Forklifts – pure-electric solutions
BYD has also chosen ITT Hub to showcase its range of class-leading forklift and pallet trucks, delivering the same pure-electric, zero-emissions credentials as BYD’s electric bus products. ITT Hub show-goers are presented with four products, each offering the lowest-possible cost of operation. First up is a BYD ECB25 four-wheel counterbalance forklift truck, designed to reduce driver fatigue, optimise productivity, and delivering a load-lifting capacity of up to 2.5-tonnes.
Next, the BYD ECB16 three-wheel counterbalance forklift truck is easy to operate and offers excellent stability. The IFOY Award-winning BYD ECB16 delivers greater performance than conventional forklift trucks while reducing energy consumption. A BYD PTP20 and a PTW20S powered pallet truck are also on show. These models are the industry’s true workhorses, offering practicality and flexibility with all the benefits of BYD Iron-Phosphate battery technology, such as increased availability and low maintenance.
BYD’s forklift products offer customers the highest level of efficiency and productivity. For example, Kent-based fruit processing company Cottage Farms equipped itself with a fleet of BYD material handling products, including reach trucks, counterbalance forklift trucks and powered pallet trucks as part of a company-wide drive to reduce its carbon footprint. As well as achieving that aim, Cottage Farms also saw an increase in operational efficiency and a reduction in its overall fleet size.
