SEA Electric pumps out electric trucks in Melbourne

Peter Roberts

The main focus for Melbourne electric vehicle drive train manufacturer Sea Electric has shifted to the United States – after all, you have to be close to your biggest markets.

But its Melbourne plant is busy pumping out electric trucks as these pictures show.

According to the company: “Our Melbourne factory is in full swing. Here’s to more EV trucks getting out onto our Australian roads and lowering carbon emissions.”

SEA Electric trucks on the line in Melbourne

SEA Electric has a global presence, deploying product in seven countries including USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Indonesia and South Africa.

SEA Electric was founded in Australia in 2012 and is now headquartered in Los Angeles, California, creating its proprietary SEA-Drive electric power-system (pictured, below) technology for the world’s urban delivery and distribution fleets.

SEA Electric launched its first model in 2017 and has since released several medium and heavy duty commercial electric vehicles including delivery trucks, garbage trucks, tipper trucks, tilt tray trucks, reefer trucks, cherry picker trucks, shuttle buses, cargo vans and passenger vans.

The SEA-Drive is adaptable to most OEM glider chassis from Class 3 to Class 8 (3.5t to 29t).

In 2020 SEA Electric partnered with Hino Trucks USA for ‘Project Z’, Hino’s path towards zero-emissions for medium-duty and heavy-duty trucks.

In March 2021 SEA Electric in Australia launched two SEA Electric badged vehicles, the SEA 300 EV and the SEA 500 EV to be sold through a dedicated SEA Electric dealer network of 15 dealerships in Australia.
