Mitsubishi LPG forklift range delivers exceptional fuel efficiency amid changing emission regulations
As European legislation continues to focus on the reduction of emissions for internal combustion engines, Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks has highlighted the role of its GRENDiA models for companies looking to lower their carbon footprint.
Stewart Gosling, Sales Director at Red Diamond Distribution — the exclusive UK importer of Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks — said: “At the start of 2019 Euro V emission standards came into force for working vehicles, and that has significant implications for anyone looking to purchase forklifts in the next year.”
All IC engine forklifts, which for the first time includes both liquid petroleum gas (LPG) and diesel vehicles, will have to comply regardless of their engine size.
The Mitsubishi GRENDiA ES FG15-35N range is already designed for these demands. As of April 2019, all new Mitsubishi factory orders of LPG forklifts will be fully compliant with Euro V.
GRENDiA ES offers exceptional energy-efficient features, including a closed-loop, three-way catalytic converter that reduces carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon emissions. It also eliminates 95 percent of dangerous NOx gases – making it one of the cleanest models, if not the cleanest model, on the market.
“Advanced LPG technology means GRENDiA ES models use 40 percent less fuel than main competitor trucks, without reducing their industry-leading high performance,” said Stewart. “Over a typical 5-year lease, this could deliver savings of more than Â£10,000.
“GRENDiA ES models are designed with minimal maintenance requirements in order to ensure maximum productivity and operation time. Combine this with the greater fuel efficiencies and you have lower running costs across the board.”
Named GRENDiA, meaning “Green Diamond”, the range sets a high standard in environmentally friendly performance, making it the ideal choice for businesses looking to upgrade their forklift fleet whilst keeping regulations in mind.
Stewart concluded: “It helps to have peace of mind during these times of regulation change, and with our GRENDiA ES models you can be confident in your compliance with Euro V.”
