Lead enabling cleaner, more economical cars
Designed to shut off a car’s engine when idling, and restart once pressure is applied to the accelerator, the automatic start-stop system is incredibly effective at reducing both fuel-consumption and emissions. Batteries used in start-stop vehicles must be able to support repeated use of the system, as well as modern car features such as satnav. Lead batteries are the only technology that can provide all the necessary performance requirements.
Lead batteries enable a decarbonised transport sector
Lead batteries are an essential onboard component in mild-hybrid, full-hybrid and electric vehicles (EVs). Lead batteries are key to the shift to sustainable, low emission transport systems, supporting increased vehicle hybridisation and electrification. They can also be installed in EV charging stations to improve their efficiency.
