eTrucks get boost

The electric truck company Tevva has received £4.2m from the UK’s Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) to help finance the development of its zero-emission, long-range medium duty trucks.

The grant will be utilised to advance the SANGREAL Project, a £12.2m collaboration between Tevva and Advanced Electric Machines (AEM), the designer and manufacturer of motors.

Ken Scott, chief engineer at Tevva, said: “We are humbled and proud to be receiving this grant to continue developing Tevva’s ground-breaking technology in the EV market. We are developing zero-emission solutions for higher weight class ‘return to base’ logistics vehicles that offer true cost of ownership benefit, compared to existing diesel offerings, with extended range – which is truly revolutionary for our industry. This funding will help make this a reality in the near-future.”

Tevva is producing the first British electric truck designed for mass production in the UK. The 7.5-tonne electric truck can carry up to 16 euro pallets and over two tonnes payload with a total cost of ownership comparable to a diesel; parity is achieved at approximately 3,000 km or when 500 litres of diesel is consumed per month.
