5 Key Advantages of Using the MA Type of Electric Vehicle

1. They Reduce Fuel & Maintenance Costs

If you compare fuel cost and electricity costs overall, electric tows such as the MA13 range requires less maintenance and running costs over time.

An electric MA 13 does not require the services and repair costs that are common for diesel or petrol tow tug maintenance. These services and repair issues include:

  • Oil changes
  • Air filter changes
  • Universal joint maintenance

But keep in mind while electric tow tugs require less maintenance, it can sometimes be difficult to find replacement parts when maintenance is required.

Diesel and petrol MA13 tug vehicle types, on the other hand, can be easier to fix because their engines are more common from a parts availability perspective.

However being part of Varley Group has many advantages, as we design, build and manufacture these parts ourselves, we are able to provide the capability and accessibility of these parts and pass it onto you.

2. Corporate Sustainable Responsibility in the Workplace

Sustainability efforts and zero tailpipe emission is a frequent cry from us EMC, after all we are an electric vehicle company. Considering an MA13 for your electric fleet is a great start to keep emissions down in your business operations. Sustainability culture within business is a top priority for many corporations within Australia and around the world, so it’s good to stay on top of any existing solutions in the marketplace.

An MA13 gives off zero emissions. Keep in mind this is not just about keeping pollution a minimum for environmental and business costs. It is about the health and safety of your workers that will be using the vehicles day to day. The reduction of any kind of harmful pollutant to protect your workers is plus.

3. Its Makes Your Employees Happier and Healthier

To extend on the sustainability point mentioned above, the health and safety of your workers shouldn’t be underestimated.

Improving these factors can benefit the workers mental health as well as physical health.

Choosing an electric tug or vehicle option for your needs over a diesel or petrol filled one is more than reducing carbon emissions. Evidence has shown from National Geographic  that the effects of noise pollution can be devastating.

This invisible danger can cause noise induced hearing loss (NIHL). Other risks include high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep disturbances and stress.

The electric MA13 however, works silently and cleanly, reducing employees’ stress and improving their overall health. With this holistic choice, the long term benefits of choosing an electric choice over a diesel are endless.

4. MA Vehicles Improve Manoeuvrability and Mobility

With the MA13’s a key advantage is their fantastic maneuverability and overall mobility. Due to the fact that these vehicles are emission free, they have the ability to go anywhere on your site. The compactness of the vehicle and uninterrupted torque, these MA 13’s can zip around anywhere! Even in tight spaces and sustain their precision in movement.

5. MA Vehicles Increase Productivity

MA’s are compact but mighty. Quickly towing heavy products and towing multiple products and goods at the same time.

MA Electric Vehicle Tugs can fit into the narrow aisles of a shopping centre floors and fit around small corners without losing traction. MA Electric Vehicle tugs can carry your products to their destinations more efficiently than other vehicle configurations. For example, like the more traditional forklifts would.

Due to the MA’s compact nature these vehicles can move around goods with little to no damage.

MA’s can deliver products with little to no damage because they are less likely to run into shelves in a warehouse or other equipment during an indoor setting or an outdoor setting.

Adding to the MA’s maneuverability alongside productivity, this maximized efficiency combination provides an element of safety.
