Tevva Unveils 19-Tonne Hydrogen Electric Truck

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Fleetpoint.

These paragraphs outline the company’s launch into Europe and their new 19-tonne hydrogen-electric truck.

Electric and hydrogen truck OEM Tevva is to unveil its 19-tonne (19t) hydrogen-electric truck and announce its strategy for mainland Europe at the IAA Transportation show in Hanover, Germany from Monday 19 September.

The company is partnering with its wide portfolio of customers, including Kinaxia Logistics, Codognotto and FM Logistic, to showcase its range of full-electric and hydrogen-electric medium-duty (7.5t to 19t / Class 5 to 8) truck solutions designed for the European market.

Its largest truck platform launch to date, Tevva’s 19t hydrogen-electric model represents a significant milestone and highlights the scalability of its technology. As with the 7.5t hydrogen-electric model, the 19t variant benefits from the company’s revolutionary dual energy system, combining lithium-ion batteries and a hydrogen fuel cell range extender. The truck is expected to have a range of up to 500km depending on the number of hydrogen cylinders specified, which can be refilled in 10 minutes.

Since, I first wrote about Tevva trucks in Tevva Presents 7.5 Tonne Truck With Range Extender, I have felt that their design of truck could be one way to go.

  • It seems to give a very good range.
  • It has a good load carrying capacity.
  • It is zero-carbon.
  • The batteries can be charged on a charge system or by use the the hydrogen fuel cells.
  • It would be good for deliveries in a city.

Tevva’s engineers seem to have done a good job.

  1. So much going on with start ups like the heavily backed Arrival based in Bicester, Volta Trucks who are an Anglo-Swedish company doing the engineering in the UK and the manufacturer in Europe and the Swedish Einride who have done a deal with China’s BYD for batteries.
    All of them have attracted significantly more finance than Tevva who despite this seem to be taking a relatively traditional way of developing their business.
    I wonder how they’ll get on in the next couple of decades.
