Meet growing AGM demand with Lucas Batteries

lucas-agmThe freezing winter weather has seen a big rise in demand for batteries as cars fail to start in the exceptionally cold conditions. One of the big differences this year has been that there is now volume demand for batteries on vehicles with start/stop systems.

These start/stop or micro-hybrid cars have raised little battery demand in recent years. In many cases the original batteries were over specified and also the start/stop function is not fully utilised on many cars meaning up to now these batteries have out performed expectations. However, a combination of natural deterioration and the extreme cold has seen many of these types of batteries failing for the first time.

Our Lucas Battery range includes a full selection of high quality Fusion AGM batteries to meet this demand at competitive prices. Remember if a car is fitted with an AGM battery in cannot be replaced with a normal lead acid unit.
