British EV company, Tevva, is the first eTruck developer to join the Transport Decarbonization Alliance, which is a global collaboration of countries, cities and companies driving towards net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
It is understood that nearly a quarter of all harmful greenhou gas emission globally are caused by transportation. The TDA estimates that, if action on transport emissions is not taken immediately, the amount of harmful greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere could rise by 50% by 2050, which is also its target for a net zero emissions economy.
Chelmsford-based Tevva, becomes the latest member of the TDA to help accelerate action on the issue. It has developed a bespoke solution for the electrification of the medium duty (7.5t – 14t) urban distribution industry. Its technologies can be integrated into any medium duty truck to offer a pure electric drivetrain, which can then be enhanced with a unique range extender that maximizes the range of the vehicle from 150km to as much as 400km by charging the truck’s battery while it is in motion.
Tevva’s proprietary technologies cover the battery pack, battery management, drive system and range extender and include a state-of-the-art vehicle control and telematics system which safely manages the vehicle and enables low running costs by optimizing use of the battery and range extender.
“Tevva is our first eTruck specialist and our first UK Member. A new, fast-growing company developing exciting new products for the low carbon economy, today. Increasing the supply of zero emission commercial vehicles is one of the key steps to decarbonize transport. We look forward to working with them to accelerate the global decarbonization of transport.”
