As vehicles continue to modernize, battery life expectancy (when not driven) continues to drop. In fact, in a number of onsite audits, over 5% of vehicles had dead batteries, and another 5% expecting to die within 72 hours.
It is not uncommon for dealerships to spend between $400 to $1000 a month on replacements. This does not include the wasted hours everyday for lot staff to find and charge dead batteries as they are identified.
The Additional Cost of Dead Batteries
In addition, batteries also power the alarms which help staff find vehicles. A dead battery can significantly delay test drives.
The result: lost sales
