SEA Electric is developing the first Ford F-59 100% electric van in production at Ford‘s Detroit Chassis Plant.

The F-59 EV is being built on a Morgan Olson Walk-in Van body and will be deployed in the fall of 2019 for delivery routes in the greater Detroit area with an as-yet-unnamed package delivery company.

The van will be powered by a SEA Drive 120b power-system with 150kW of continuous power and 250kW maximum power, and 2500 Nm maximum torque. SEA Electric says it will have a range of up to 220 miles (350km) and zero emissions.

Charge time for the batteries is four to six hours using a 19.2kW single phase 240V on board charger.
