Advance Auto Parts introduces 12V DieHard battery for hybrids, EVs

Advance Auto Parts has introduced DieHard EV batteries with xEV by Clarios. The company says it is the first auto parts retailer to sell 12-volt batteries designed specifically for hybrid and electric vehicles.

DieHard EV batteries feature low-voltage technology designed to provide superior reliability, durability and safety for all hybrid and electric vehicles, the company says, as these vehicles place more demand on their low-voltage batteries. To address this, DieHard EV batteries offer 30% more cycling vs. standard AGM batteries and provide stable performance from day one through end of life, the company says. Additionally, their construction helps assure critical safety functions like brakes, steering and lighting remain operational during an emergency, the company says.

DieHard EV extends the AGM technology UL validated earlier this year that reduces the environmental impact and resources needed to manufacture, the company says. All DieHard AGM batteries contain a minimum of 94% post-consumer recycled polypropylene and lead content using a closed-cycle mass balance system, the company adds.
