Electric v. IC Cost Calculator


The lift truck is one of the most widely used material handling vehicles. Although lift trucks traditionally have been fueled by gasoline, propane gas or diesel fuel, more than 55% of lift vehicles currently purchased are battery-powered. Electric lift trucks provide many benefits, such as:

  • Cost savings – realized through reduced fuel costs, lower life cycle costs and lower maintenance costs
  • Environmentally friendly – realized through elimination of combustion and fumes
  • Efficiency – realized through increased productivity, quieter operation and increased comfort and safety

The calculator will allow you to determine the true cost savings and environmental benefit of electrics versus their IC counterparts, with the ability to tailor to a specific customer, including the ability to adjust the capital costs.
