BYD continues to sprint towards electrifying every vehicle category in the world, the latest in line is addition of electric forklift production facility in the Southern California city of Rancho Dominguez.
The new 50,000 square foot facility will also include supporting offices, warehousing, and demonstration space to show potential customers what these new lithium iron phosphate-powered vehicles are capable of.
BYD believes its lithium-powered forklifts are game changers as they extend the life expectancy of the battery pack significantly compared to their lead-acid predecessors.
A 90-minute charge time helps them to stay fully topped up with minimal downtime throughout a shift or day. The new forklift facility will open later this year at 18910 South Wilmington Avenue in Rancho Dominguez, California.
They continue to expand into new vehicle segments and categories from the largest of trucks and buses to mid-sized vehicles like street sweepers and even cement trucks. BYD’s fully electric products are biased towards fleet operations.
