Tevva Starts First Mass Production Of Electric Lorries In UK

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

These are the first three paragraphs.

Tevva is building its 7.5 tonne vehicles at Tilbury in Essex after it received European Community Whole Vehicle Type Approval (ECWVTA), meaning it can start producing and selling in volume across the UK and Europe.

The start-up has already started delivering its first mass-produced lorries to customers including Travis Perkins and Royal Mail. It expects to sell up to 1,000 in 2023.

Described as “ideal” for last mile and urban delivery fleets, the electric truck offers up to 227km range from its 105kWh battery on a single charge. It will be followed later in 2023 by a 7.5 tonne hydrogen-electric alternative. The hydrogen range extender will reportedly increase the range up to 570km.

That seems like a good start to me; certification, orders for a thousand and generous ranges with or without a hydrogen extender.

In Equipmake Hybrid To Battery Powered LT11, I described Equipmake’s battery-electric New Routemaster bus.

Both the battery-electric Routemaster and the Tevva truck seem to have generous ranges, so has better battery technology been developed.
