Morgan Truck Body, SEA Electric, Central Trailer Service for 40 EV truck bodies

Morgan Truck Body is collaborating with SEA Electric and longtime Morgan-authorized distributor Central Trailer Service to fulfill orders for 40 EV truck bodies by year-end 2022. The truck chassis features the zero-emission SEA Electric SEA-Drive Power System, with a 1,106 lb.-ft. electric motor combined with a 138kWh battery pack, upfitted with Morgan’s lightweight Aluminum Dry Freight Body and enhanced safety features including back-up camera and bright LED lighting.

“It takes exceptional collaboration to bring a major order like this to fruition,” says Tom Diez, vice president, sales & marketing at Morgan Truck Body. “We especially appreciate working with SEA Electric and Central Trailer Service to serve and support the growing demand for fully electric trucks and fleets throughout North America. As electrification gains traction, Morgan will continue to provide the most innovative and technologically advanced commercial truck body solutions.”

“This deal is possible because of years of research, development and growth, and proves that SEA Electric is on track to achieve its vision of becoming number one when it comes to electrifying fleets across the world,” said Mike Menyhart, SEA Electric president – Americas and chief strategy officer.

“As orders for EV commercial trucks accelerate, the decision was obvious to partner with Morgan Truck Body, the undisputed leader in body upfits and EV integration,” says Brad Bailey, vice president at Central Trailer Service.
