New electric truck to be mass produced in Tilbury

The first British-designed 7.5 tonne electric truck is going to be mass produced in Tilbury. 

The Tevva Truck is expected to help address the freight industry’s urgent need to electrify fleets of lorries ahead of a ban on the sale of all polluting vehicles in 2035. 

It has been designed to address typical barriers to commercial electric vehicles such as affordability and range. 

“The Tevva Truck offers a range of up to 160 miles in pure battery electric vehicle form or up to 310 miles with its patented range extender technology, which has now been upgraded to use hydrogen fuel cells,” said a spokesperson for Tevva. 

Former Jaguar Land Rover chief designer, Dale Grewer, and former lead engineer at Bentley Motors, Ken Scott, worked on the design. 

The vehicle will be manufactured at a new facility in Tilbury, creating more than 1,000 skilled mechanical, software, engineering, and manufacturing jobs over the next two years. 

Production is expected to begin in July 2022 following seven years of engineering development work and three years of in-fleet trials covering 200,000 miles. 

The global electric truck market was valued at $1.15 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow to $14.19 billion by 2027.
