SEA Electric has successfully showcased to the automotive fleet management decision-makers of Australia at the recent Australasian Fleet Management Association’s (AfMA) 2022 Fleet Conference & Exhibition.
Designed to highlight the road ahead for fleet professionals, SEA Electric exhibited a SEA 300-85 EV cab chassis and with a SEA-Drive® 100 power-system, while also sponsoring the program’s morning tea.
Amongst the 35 speakers at the conference, Bill Gillespie, SEA Electric President, Asia Pacific Region, outlined the current state of the zero-emission transport environment and the aspirations of SEA Electric as Australia’s newest commercial vehicle OEM
“The AfMA Conference was a great opportunity to engage with the key stakeholders involved in the fleet management industry,” said Mr Gillespie.
“From a SEA Electric perspective, the event underlines that the sector now has a strong understanding of the concepts behind EV technology, they are asking more technical questions, and being purchase ready, they want to know more about the acquisition process.
“Even with increased competition in the marketplace, SEA Electric is well positioned to capitalize on those looking to make the switch to EV, with an established, trusted national dealer network, plus a comprehensive range of cab, wheelbase, and power-system options to cover applications up to 22.5 tonnes.
“It is apparent that our high-quality vehicles, backed by millions of kilometres of real-world use, and supported by an extensive aftersales service and parts offering places SEA Electric at the forefront of the available EV truck options.”
A focus of the conference was the ever-changing technology aspects faced by the industry, from zero-emissions options to autonomous motoring, performance, and safety.
In Australia, transport emissions make up 19 per cent of the country’s total emissions, with road freight contributing to 38 per cent of that total, despite heavy vehicles only making up 4 per cent of the road vehicle fleet.
Founded in Australia in 2012, SEA Electric’s mature technology can now be found on five continents, with growth accelerating across the USA and Europe.
