The Toyota Core Electric is big on small-space productivity. Carrying up to 6500 pounds. Lifting as high as 23 feet. Unloading more pallets at once in confined aisles. And the powerfully efficient AC motors, designed and built by Toyota, maximize uptime and reduce overall cost of ownership. When the going gets tight, the Core Electric — quietly powerful, powerfully efficient — gets going and is the #1 selling electric forklift.

The Toyota Core Electric Forklift is an ideal compact four-wheel electric lift truck solution for most indoor and warehouse applications. With its 3000-6500 lb. capacity and industry-leading System of Active Stability (SAS), the Core Electric Forklift is capable of moving most any standard load while maintaining the ability to fully operate in spaces as small as 11 feet wide. And Toyota designed and built AC motors provide new levels of performance, efficiency, and reliability to maximize your productivity and return on investment.

Plus, the Toyota Core Electric Turret Forklift features a Cascade mast and turret head, offering the ability to stack at 90-degree angles for increased productivity in narrow aisles. Warehouse reconfiguration can help drive efficiency to match accelerating demand. Toyota supplies the equipment necessary to meet material handling challenges when racks get closer and aisles get narrower.

SEnS Smart Environment Sensor™ (SEnS)

The SEnS Smart Environment Sensor™ (SEnS) pedestrian detection system – designed and engineered by Toyota – uses advanced technology and can assist operators in identifying a pedestrian or object behind their forklift during a shift. If within a detectible range, a buzzer and four indicator lights will alert the operator that a pedestrian or object is within a certain range of the rear of the forklift. SEnS is available as an add-on kit that can be retrofitted for select Toyota forklift models currently in utilization, as well as new models. SEnS, works with multiple input voltages and fits a variety of applications.as an add-on kit that can be retrofitted for select Toyota forklift models currently in utilization, as well as new models.
