The SEA Electric EV tipper is assisted by the SEA-Drive 100-10. It saves substantial costs with decreased gasoline and lower repair costs, whispers silently, eliminates noise emissions in urban streets, and deals with driver fatigue with no engine noises or fumes.

FREMONT, CA: As part of their commitment to a zero-emission fleet by mid-2030, the ACT Government (The Government of the Australian Capital Territory) will use an Electric Vehicle (EV) for cleaning and repair duties. The SEA EV tipper truck will be driven by 100 percent clean electricity from the ACT Government City Services Depot.

SEA Electric is a multinational automobile technology corporation involved in producing and electrifying 100 percent of commercial electric vehicles worldwide. They negotiate directly with businesses (and work alongside automotive OEMs and up-to-date partners) to supply and license their proprietary technology.

“The ACT leads the nation when it comes to managing climate change and the environment,” said Chris Steel, Minister for Transport. “This 12-month trial of the new electric tipper truck supports the ACT Governments strong commitment to sustainability which includes a commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in its operations to zero by 2040.”

The SEA Electric EV tipper is assisted by the SEA-Drive 100-10. It saves substantial costs with decreased gasoline and lower repair costs, whispers silently, eliminates noise emissions in urban streets, and deals with driver fatigue with no engine noises or fumes.

“It was a pleasure to be present in our Nation’s capital for the handover of this 100% electric tipper truck,” said Glen Walker SEA Electrics Regional Director, Oceania.“This truck is ideally suited to the intended application of general cleaning and maintenance tasks. It will quietly go about its job whilst avoiding up to 30 tonnes of C02 annually that would otherwise be released by a diesel equivalent. Congratulations to the ACT Government, and Canberra Isuzu for the deployment of the first of many SEA-Drive powered electric trucks.”

The electric tipper truck is powered by a SEA-Drive100 power system with a battery capacity of 100 kWh and a combined power output of 108 kW. More specifically, for a commercial vehicle, the SEA-Drive 100 produces a maximum torque of 1,000Nm, has a range of up to 275km (unloaded), with an onboard three-phase battery that can be charged at 80 percent within 5 hours.
