New Electric Truck Manufacturing Facility in Victoria

Victoria backs new electric truck manufacturing facility.

The Victorian government has announced financial support to electric truck maker SEA Technologies to build a new plant in Victoria’s La Trobe Valley.

The facility is expected to employ 500 La Trobe Valley locals, and assemble 2,400 vehicles a year – specialising in the production of electric delivery vans and minibuses using SEA Electric’s proprietary, and world-first, electric drive technology.

“Our announcement today, in partnership with SEA Electric, is all about making sure that the La Trobe Valley is the national capital for electric vehicles,” Premier Andrews said during a press conference in Morwell.” This is 500 manufacturing jobs, 500 new jobs in this proud region, putting together (electric) vehicles.
