Can you afford not to choose Kalmar?

Whatever business you are in, you need to take a life cycle perspective on your investment.

Our latest generation of electric forklifts, the Kalmar ECG50–90 offers optimum battery usage for up to 15 per cent longer operational time than previous-generation trucks. It also boasts a market-leading diagnostic system that boosts your uptime, and easy maintenance.

Compared to a diesel truck the energy savings alone is 75% less with an electric truck. This makes the truck a very attractive investment for the future. 

A pleasure to drive

For operators, the Kalmar EGO cabin provides industry-leading ergonomics and perfect visibility right around the machine. The cabin setup can be fine-tuned for optimal operator position and the best possible performance, while the highly responsive hydraulic system improves both precision and the overall driving experience. The powerful climate control makes it just as comfortable on a hot summer day as a cold winter night.

A pleasure to maintain

The maintenance cost of an electric forklift is significantly lower than for a diesel truck, due to fewer moving parts such as start motor, turbo etc. Comparisons show that the difference can be as much as 50%. Our new electric forklift is also equipped with our latest electric system for fast diagnostics and accurate troubleshooting.  

A winning concept in the long run

With its high operational efficiency, low maintenance costs and long service life, the Kalmar ECG50–90 provides a market-leading total cost of ownership and can break even in as little as two years*.


*Calculations are based on 2,500 operational hours per year, diesel consumption of 8 litres/h at 1.2 €/litre, and electricity use of 17 kWh per hour at 0.12 €/hour.

Smart and speedy

Energy-efficient technology

One day you might need speed to get things done quickly. The next you might need to normal driving. Eco mode cuts energy consumption by up to 15 per cent compared to previous-generation models.

Smooth and quiet

Driving the ECG50–90 is a smooth and quiet experience, with no vibration and very low noise levels, making it the perfect choice for indoor lifting operations.

The power of choice

Our range of 5-9 ton electric forklifts come with a choice of battery technology, either Lead Acid or Lithium-ion, a range of different masts, lifting capacities and attachments so we can build the right solution for you.

Market-leading diagnostics

Our latest diagnostic system detects faults and automatically displays an error code on the operator’s display, so operators can take instant action instead of spending time on troubleshooting. If a service technician needs to be called in, repairs are faster and downtime shorter because the technician can source the relevant spares in advance based on the diagnostic data.

Safe and sound 

Safety has always been a Kalmar trademark, and the ECG50–90 is no exception.

For all climates

The ECG50–90 has been tested in the though Swedish winter conditions. It works just as well for outdoor operations as indoor operations.
