Jungheinrich has delivered its 100,000th truck with a lithium-ion battery. The ETV 216i reach truck was delivered as part of an order of 16 identical trucks to the Amazon warehouse in Leipzig, where 140 other Jungheinrich electric trucks are already in use.

"The delivery of the 100,000th lithium-ion truck is a special milestone for us at Jungheinrich, and one that we are very proud of. As a pioneer of electromobility in the warehouse, we were the first manufacturer to rely on efficient lithium-ion technology and thus changed our industry for good," says Jungheinrich board member for sales Christian Erlach.

He adds that lithium-ion batteries are now standard equipment for emission-free electromobility in the warehouse. They are characterised in particular by their energy efficiency. Compared to a diesel truck of the same performance class, an electric truck with a lithium-ion battery emits less than half the CO2 during its entire lifetime, including its manufacture. 

In 2011, Jungheinrich was the world's first industrial truck manufacturer to launch a series-produced truck with a lithium-ion battery. Since then, lithium-ion technology has become the fastest-growing battery technology for industrial trucks. 

Jungheinrich plans to achieve a 70% share of lithium-ion trucks in the fleet sold by 2025.

The ETV 216i delivered to the Amazon warehouse in Leipzig is a Jungheinrich POWERLiNE truck. 

An integrated lithium-ion battery enables Jungheinrich to produce a forklift that is shorter, safer and more comfortable than comparable lead-acid models.
