Commercial electric vehicle service provider Zeem Solutions has placed an order for 100 all-electric Hino 195 EVs with automotive technology company SEA Electric.
The SEA Hino 195 EVs are powered by the SEA-Drive 120a power-system, offering 110 hp continuous power, 170 hp maximum power, and boasting a maximum torque of 1,106 lb.-ft.
With a range of up to 200 miles, zero emissions, fewer moving parts, and lower operating costs, according to SEA Electric, the 100% electric medium-duty trucks offer an innovative commercial vehicle solution for Zeem’s fleet operators.
Zeem Solutions assist fleet operators with the formulation and integration of tailored, comprehensive EV strategies to optimise operating costs when buying or leasing commercial EVs.
The 100% electric commercial EV’s will be assembled by Fontaine Modifications and deployed in California.
“We are starting in our Los Angeles and Sacramento locations because we can efficiently service our trucks as well as inventory spare vehicles to lessen downtime for customers," said Zeem Solutions CEO Paul Gioupis. “Once we have successfully deployed in Los Angeles and Sacramento, we will be rolling additional units out in San Francisco and San Diego.”
SEA Electric’s founder and President Tony Fairweather said, “SEA Electric is honored to receive our first three-digit order from Zeem Solutions, with all units to be delivered throughout 2020 starting in the first quarter.”
The all-electric vehicles will be assembled by U.S. labor at Fontaine Modifications, with the first builds supported by SEA Electric personnel, according to Fairweather, who concluded, "Fontaine is the perfect upfitting partner for this product, with assembly already commenced on the first unit."
