E-truck maker Tevva adds lease and purchase options to subscription service

After positive feedback at London’s 2019 Freight of the City Expo, Tevva Motors has confirmed that in addition to its six-month rental scheme, it will now support vehicle leases and direct purchases of its e-truck. Series production is set to begin in 2020.

Through its Electrify initiative, Tevva offers urban distribution companies a six-month rental of a 12-ton truck. Under its rental scheme, Tevva provides trucks outfitted with its proprietary EV technology as well as training and technical support. With the subscription service, Tevva hopes to arm businesses with the proof that electrification delivers a reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) for fleets.

Powered by an 80 kWh (with range extender) or 134 kWh (without range extender) lithium-ion-phosphate battery pack, the Tevva Electrify vehicles have an electric range of around 150 km (93 miles) and are available from Tevva with multiple body options. With the range extender, the system’s integrated, cloud-based geofencing software autonomously ensures that the truck delivers zero tailpipe emissions in urban areas.

A demo fleet will kick off in mid-2020 with a group of businesses running vehicles between London and Oxford.

Tevva Sales and Marketing Director David Thackray said, “Of all the fleet directors and logistics managers I’ve spoken to off the back of FITC (Freight of the City Expo), the response has been 100% in favour. What they need – and what Tevva Electrify will give them – is the ammunition they want to be able to go all the way up to the board and the Financial Director and prove that this isn’t just clean, it also adds up. It’s not so much about overcoming uncertainty – everyone knows electrification is coming – as it is about providing evidential proof.”
