Tevva hosts drive event day 03 April 2024

?Tevva  battery-electric truck

Tevva kicked off the first of its 2024 drive event days, allowing 40 prospective customers to drive its 7.5 tonne battery-electric truck at Tevva London in Tilbury.

The Tevva 7.5t truck offers up to 140 miles from its 105-kWh battery on a single charge and is ideal for urban delivery fleets.

Ken Scott, managing director of Tevva, said: “As the only British company making battery-electric trucks today, we’re delighted to launch this 'try before you buy' programme, where you can test drive one of our vehicles for yourself. Any forward-thinking fleet decision-maker shouldn’t miss this opportunity. They might be surprised at how smooth the transition from a dirty diesel to a clean electric truck can be,” Scott added.

Agreeing with this assessment, Rich Wilkins, Key Account Manager at Kuehne + Nagel said: “Driving the Tevva truck was such an amazing experience. The truck drove so smoothly, quietly, and effortlessly - and the power from the acceleration was sensational.”

The events are intended to provide fleet managers, transport managers, operations directors and anyone tasked with decarbonising their commercial vehicle fleets with the opportunity to get behind the wheel of an electric truck.

The test drive route visits Tilbury Port and Tilbury town, mimicking typical urban delivery routes. Participants were able to drive or be driven on local roads.

A full programme includes an informal knowledge share of the onboard technologies at the Tevva Creation Hub - covering batteries, regen braking, eMotors and a look at the company’s manufacturing facilities.
