SEA Electric selected to power Hino's M and L Series


SEA Electric (Los Angeles, California) announced the expansion of its existing business relationship with Hino Trucks. The move follows in the footsteps of earlier supply agreements, which included the sale of SEA Electric branded class 5 trucks. 

This latest announcement paves the way for SEA Electric’s proprietary SEA-Drive® power-system to be fitted to both the Hino Trucks’ M and L Series.

SEA Electric’s SEA-Drive® 120a power-system was part of Project Z, Hino Trucks’ first advancement into zero-emission vehicles in the medium-duty space.

Further details of the SEA Electric-Hino Trucks’ arrangement will be unveiled in due course.

“This is another monumental day for SEA Electric in our quest to electrify the world’s commercial fleets, and move to a zero emissions future,” said Tony Fairweather, SEA Electric CEO and Founder.

“Hino Trucks’ products are renowned the world over for their dependability and reliability, and we are proud to be a part of the next chapter of that story.

“SEA Electric has committed to building a business that is sustainable both environmentally and economically and we welcome the opportunity to expand our relationship with a global leader such as Hino Trucks to further develop and advance our technological offerings.   

“Cultivating a diverse ecosystem of partners, such as Hino Trucks, enables SEA Electric to work with different customers simultaneously, including upfitters, suppliers, and more, creating an opportunity to extend beyond our current markets.”

For Hino Trucks, the announcement expands its range in a growing market.

“We are pleased to add SEA Electric’s SEA-Drive® power-system to our M and L series product offering. As our industry introduces electric options, Hino Trucks can now offer an option for all the markets affected by ACT mandate," said Glenn Ellis, President of Hino Trucks.
