Leading electrical systems for trucks and other commercial vehicles.
Concern for nature and the environment is becoming increasingly important in purchasing decisions. Similarly, they are also considering SEA Electric, an Australian company that has expanded almost everywhere in the world over two years with its electric batteries for trucks and vans.
Australia’s leading software and technology company, SEA Electric, is finally entering the European market with its carefully developed and advanced electrical system. After successful breakthroughs on the domestic and New Zealand market, several months ago, they successfully launched their business in America, and now they open their premises in Vienna.
An investment for a cleaner and cheaper future
At a time when industry is increasingly aware of environmental pollution and wants to contribute to cleaner air, it offers unique technology for commercial and delivery vehicles. Seven different SEA-DRIVE® power-system innovative systems have been developed to replace diesel engines from smaller and larger commercial vehicles, from vans to trucks (55,000lb). The system with electric batteries operates on the basis of patented computer technology. Their engines are used by important international companies around the world.
Cooperation signed with Ikea and DHL
In Australia, SEA Electric has already entered into strong European companies such as DHL and Ikea, and the first European licensing cooperation has already been signed with the largest German manufacturer of garbage trucks. For vans and municipal transport services, such as mail and garbage collection, they have developed advanced propulsion technology with the highest energy efficiency and easy and convenient charging. A number of junction points in cities also help to save energy, as stopping and firing the battery is full (regenerative braking). Electrically propelled electric cars and vans represent a green solution for cities that are confronted with traffic congestion or are seeking to improve people’s lives.
Easy filling on the road or in the base
The SEA-DRIVE® electric battery system is fully charged within 4-6 hours and is therefore perfect for commercial and delivery vehicles from major European cities, which are still small enough for delivery at a distance of up to 350 km. And they are overly concerned about where to fill up the vehicle quickly while driving. Unlike other electric vehicles, all SEA- Drive® systems have the option of charging with a portable 22kW charger in any 3-phase socket. They are therefore an ideal solution for delivery in urban areas where the vehicle returns to the base and the battery can be fully charged overnight.
For a green environment without harmful releases
Tony Fairweather, executive director of SEA Electric believes that the system of effective urban e-mobility will also adopt European cities and thus contribute to solving environmental congestion. “SEA Electric is the ideal solution for cities that are consciously and consciously prepared for environmental zones. It will be prohibited to use harmful emissions vehicles, which is why it is right for ministries and municipalities to become aware as soon as possible of the importance of using electric batteries, engines. Research suggests that vehicles fossil fuels will disappear from cities by 2050, and the use of electric trucks should increase by 2025. ”
Easy to install and upgrade the system
The growing demand for nature-friendly transport, government support for the purchase of electric cars and improved filling infrastructure open up new opportunities for environmental and high-tech technological advances. SEA Electric Energy Technology, due to efficient and easy installation procedures, enables the upgrading and development of the hardware of each embedded subsystem. There is no doubt that SEA Electric has a technology and a business model that meets the requirements of the transition to the electrical system since they have a complete package for almost every commercial vehicle.

Australian electric truck operations are a reality in Melbourne suburbs, WM Waste Management Services has revealed.
effort sees WM using a SuperiorPak-bodied, SEA Electric propelled, Iveco ACCO-based hard-waste trucks to collect hard rubbish in the City of Casey in Melbourne’s south-east. READ MORE
The City of Casey’s recycling of hard-waste is becoming carbon neutral with several new electric trucks joining the fleet at WM Waste Management as part of a new waste contract.
The trucks are powered solely by battery power and have a charge of up to five hours before needing to be recharged. READ MORE
Have no doubt, electric trucks are coming.
And, if a pilot program now being run by Isuzu Australia in concert with SEA Electric delivers the right results, the Japanese truck maker will be ready, willing and able as demand increases.
The obvious application for electric trucks is shorthaul distribution work in light and medium-duty trucks, and according to both Isuzu and SEA Electric, operator interest is slowly but surely growing. READ MORE
