Blackwells Isuzu is the newly appointed South Island Electric Truck specialists.
We have partnered with the Australian based company SEA Electric Ltd to carry out EV conversions on Isuzu N-Series and F-Series trucks. Electric trucks mean producing no emissions and significantly reducing running costs. They're an exciting alternative as an around-town delivery truck or other means. The new partnership with SEA Electric Ltd allows us to work to provide high-quality electric parts for future aftersales support. We now also have the capabilities to support these conversions with EV-trained staff and on-site EV chargers that will soon be available for electric camper vans, heavy trucks plus other heavy & light commercial vehicles that are also a South Island first.
