Spotted: UK-based Tevva is launching a medium-duty electric truck. The Tevva Truck can accommodate over two tonnes of cargo, and has a range of up to 160 miles (257.5 km) of per-charge driving. This range can be further extended to 310 miles through a hydrogen fuel cell range extender.
Tevva is available in left- or right-hand drive configurations, and the trucks can be fitted with a host of additional features. These include a tail lift, crane, curtain side and temperature-controlled tech. They are also equipped with remote-monitoring capabilities.
Production is not due to begin until summer 2022 but preorders are now open. As a next step, Tevva is looking at technologies that may allow the battery pack to be fully re-charged in just one hour.
Tevva founder and CEO, Asher Bennett explains, “Technology is transforming the commercial vehicle sector at pace, making it safer, greener, and entirely more efficient”. He added, “The Tevva Truck provides a natural transition into electrification for fleet managers, providing total peace of mind and a compelling total cost of ownership proposition, with no compromise on range and reliability and minimized compromise on payload”.
Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly common and, at Springwise, we have spotted a number of applications for EV technology that go beyond passenger vehicles. These include electric construction vehicles and an electric ‘Tundra Buggy’.
