Lockdown battery opportunity highlighted by HELLA

Published:  28 April, 2020

COVID-19 could be the ultimate cause of battery failure for thousands of vehicles currently sitting idle under lockdown, and HELLA is highlighting this as a likely opportunity for garages in the months ahead.

Martin McGreevy, Sales Director at HELLA commented: “Modern vehicles have many more electric motors, systems and technologies than a decade ago, placing far greater pressure on the electrical system and ultimately on the battery. However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s possible that batteries will go flat through weeks, and potentially months, of limited use.

“As workshops have not been ordered to close by government, drivers will still be utilising them, which is why HELLA is highlighting the opportunity to proactively undertake battery checks and subsequently benefit from replacement sales.”

HELLA’s comprehensive battery range consists of four models: Classic, Premium, Supreme and AGM, to cater for every conceivable application, from passenger car and light commercial vehicles (LCV) to heavy duty and agricultural.

“The Classic range is designed for smaller capacity engines and older vehicles,” said Martin, “providing a cost-effective solution for these applications because of its reliability and maintenance free convenience. For general purpose applications, HELLA has designed the Premium range for all classes of vehicle. The Supreme range provides a solution for vehicles with extremely high energy consuming demands. Finally, the AGM range is ideal for the growing number of vehicles featuring Stop/Start functionality.”

Martin added: “When the battery does need replacing, HELLA’s battery finder provides fitting instructions, estimated fitment time and gives all of the technical information on the battery.”
