SANTA CLARA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / April 7, 2022 / SPI Energy Ltd. (NASDAQ:SPI), a global renewable energy company and provider of solar storage and electric vehicle (EV) solutions for business, residential, government, logistics and utility customers, is pleased to announce that its wholly owned Phoenix Motorcars subsidiary commenced delivery of the lithium-ion powered electric forklifts with the first 15 units to a leading trucking, distribution, and logistics service provider in Southern California.
Powered by advanced lithium-ion technology, the 5,000 lbs. capacity forklifts offer significantly better operating efficiency with faster time and longer run time and also eliminate the need for additional battery packs, as is common with lead acid battery forklifts. The fully sealed battery packs are maintenance free, thereby eliminating any health and safety concerns associated with refueling and maintaining conventional forklifts. The lithium-ion batteries come with a 10-year or 20,000-hour warranty.
Phoenix Motorcars also offers lithium-ion powered forklifts with 4,000 lbs. and 7,700 lbs. capacities and a range of electric pallet trucks.
"This is an important milestone for Phoenix Motorcars and marks our entry in the advanced material handling industry," said Xiaofeng Denton Peng, Chairman and CEO of SPI Energy. "We offer a compelling product portfolio, and we will further expand this to offer a complete range of solutions. Growing interest from customers throughout 2022 and beyond is expected as we ramp our sales and marketing initiatives for these product lines."
