In trying to achieve the lowest possible purchase price, it’s easy to overlook the importance of specifying the optimum battery for your application… and then matching it with the right charger. A poor match can dramatically shorten your battery’s operating life. A good one could cut your energy bills by as much as 30% - and that’s not the only benefit.
Although the initial outlay is higher, the whole life running costs of electric trucks almost always work out cheaper than their LG gas or diesel equivalents over a 5 year period.
Euro-for-Euro electrics give you more energy per penny. That makes a huge difference as energy costs are a significant operational cost (second only to the cost of the operator him/herself).
When it comes to minimising your running costs, specifying the right combination of battery and charger is paramount. It requires the buyer to take a holistic approach rather than opting for the lowest purchase prices.
