The New Toyota Traigo 48 reaches the highest levels of productivity while carrying loads of energy

Toyota Material Handling Europe (TMHE) introduces the new Toyota Traigo 48, which delivers class-leading energy efficiency whilst being highly productive in intensive operations.

Toyota always has its customers in mind and keeps on striving for increased productivity levels that exceed expectations. Through extensive research, the latest technologies and new components are implemented in a compact chassis. Together with an ergonomic upgrade, this optimises the driver’s experience. This way customers can count on a longer operating life without compromising productivity, even in the most intensive operations.


The new Traigo 48-volt electric forklift comes with new electric power steering for effortless steering and features force feedback, ensuring accurate control at all driving speeds. This truck also offers enhanced control with full stop on ramp and accurate positioning with and without load.


The 3-wheel models are now available from 1.5 to 2.0 tonnes and are highly manoeuvrable in confined areas. The 4-wheel models, available from 1.6 to 2.0 tonnes, can handle intensive operations in indoor and outdoor environments and now feature an improved turning circle. These versatile and flexible forklifts can access all areas, delivering an excellent all-round performance for all materials handling applications. They are also equipped with the unique Toyota System of Active Stability (SAS) and Toyota AC motors to enhance safety and productivity.


The 48-volt counterbalanced range sets a new standard in energy efficiency, consuming less energy while increasing performance. These models are also available with the optional Li-ion battery technology which allows for fast opportunity charging at any time. This revolutionary battery management eliminates the need for battery change in multi-shift applications.


“Our goal was to exceed our customers’ expectations, and with Traigo 48 we delivered class-leading productivity through increased performance and lower energy consumption. Traigo 48 is also an important step forward in terms of ergonomics thanks to the offer of Li-ion batteries as a standard option, which reduces the need of battery change in many operations”, says David Backx, Product Management Counterbalanced Trucks at Toyota Material Handling Europe.
