LKQ Euro Car Parts launch new Stop/Start battery range

Published:  08 April, 2021

LKQ Euro Car Parts has launched a new range of batteries, with a view to helping independent garages service vehicles with Stop/Start systems and high energy requirements.The ERA range features five enhanced flooded batteries (EFB) and five absorbed glass mat batteries (AGM), which, combined, cover 95% of the UK’s Stop/Start market.

Colin Cottrell, Marketing and Central Operations Director at LKQ Euro Car Parts, said: “Stop/Start battery technology has been around for more than a decade and is already common in the independent aftermarket. Thanks to the benefits it delivers in reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, we can be confident that it’s here to stay – and we anticipate that by 2027, it will be present in 70% of the UK car parc.

“It’s vital to choose the correct replacement battery for each vehicle, to ensure it can deal with frequent stop-starting and power the vehicle’s electrical load. With the addition of ERA Stop/Start batteries to our range, we’re giving independent garages access to 10 high performance, great quality products that will mean every customer drives away happy.”

LKQ Euro Car Parts is also encouraging garages to offer vehicle health checks before their customers get back on the roads this summer. “Identifying any faults or safety concerns that may have arisen during period of little to no use in lockdown,” added Colin, “including flat batteries, is an important way to make up some of the shortfall left by deferred MOTs.”
