Comtruk SUB: Ford Ranger with all-new drop-side flatbed
Comtruk’s SUB is the new generation of pickup bed with operable gates. Tested on the road and worksite, the flexible SUB adapts to commercial and fleet needs. Made of light and durable industrial-grade alloy, it saves on fuel, resists corrosion and delivers a longer service life. It offers flatter floor space compared to a standard pickup bed, allowing it to haul more.
Integrated steps and handles, and the easy-to-operate side gates and tailgate, increase system flexibility and enable safer loading practices. Gates can even be locked in place at 90 degrees and turned into a worksite workbench. SUB lends itself to repeatable loading/unloading processes for documentation in standard operating procedures.
SUB accommodates the most popular brands of accessories, allowing for customization for the job or industry. Haul more, and keep what you haul more organized.

SEA Electric is an automotive technology company offering proprietary battery-electric power-system technology for the commercial vehicle sector. SEA Electric developed seven SEA-DriveTM power-systems to electrify the distribution vehicle segment of the automotive industry, from vans to 55,000-pound rigid trucks.
At The Work Truck Show Ride-and-Drive, SEA Electric will showcase an Isuzu NRR with the SEA-Drive propulsion system. The proprietary SEA-Drive technology is unique in the following ways:
- It has been developed on flexible architecture, allowing both the optimization of energy consumption for each sub-system while also allowing a framework on which new developments in sub-system hardware can be introduced and adapted in the future. This results in a “live” system, where continuous improvement is possible, which ultimately de-risks the purchasing decision for fleet buyers.
- Mid-mounted batteries provide optimized vehicle balance and future-proofing against expected side impact legislation.
- A unique charging methodology reduces the need for expensive off-board fast-charging.
- A highly efficient and simple installation process ensures world-class total cost of ownership for the complete electric commercial vehicle.
With vehicles operating and proven in many countries and SEA Electric offices now in U.S., Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, SEA Electric is well positioned to expand its SEA-Drive power-system offering into this rapidly growing segment.
