In March 2023, SEA Electric and Hino Trucks, announced the expansion of their existing business relationship, solidifying a partnership that will revolutionize the landscape of zero emission transportation in the United States.
The announcement follows in the footsteps of earlier supply agreements, in which Hino Trucks entrusted SEA Electric to supply class 5 trucks branded under the SEA Electric name, a testament to their trust in SEA’s innovation and expertise.
This latest development paves the way for SEA Electric’s proprietary SEA-Drive® power-system to be fitted in both the Hino Trucks’ M and L Series, marking a significant step forward in the adoption of electric vehicle technology in the commercial sector.
SEA Electric’s SEA-Drive® system is renowned for its efficiency, reliability, and eco-friendliness. With this partnership, Hino Trucks can now offer an all-electric solution for all markets impacted by the Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) mandate.
The collaboration extends beyond vehicle integration, with staff, dealers and customers alike all embracing the expertise and offering from SEA Electric. Recently, SEA Electric was invited to attend the Hino Parts Convention in Las Vegas, where the Hino M5e powered by SEA-Drive® was prominently displayed on stage, showcasing the practicality and viability of all electric technology.
Moreover, SEA Electric was proud to partner with Hino Trucks at the Ignite Dealer Conference. The event featured presentations from SEA Electric’s Chief Commercial Officer, Mike Menyhart, and Vice President of Engineering, Joseph Greenley. These presentations highlighted the cutting-edge technology and innovation driving the collaboration between SEA Electric and Hino Trucks.
