Tevva 7.5 ton electric trucks are now eligible for UK government grant. This means UK organisations can now benefit from £16,000 discount, thus reducing Tevva electric vehicle TCO. Tevva is the first British electric truck manufacturer to obtain such eligibility. The grant pays for 20 percent of the purchase price.
More into details, to be eligible for the grant, N2 vehicles (trucks that weigh between 5-12 tonnes) must have a CO2 emissions figure of at least 50 percent less than the conventional equivalent vehicle that can carry the same capacity and can travel at least 60 miles without any tailpipe emissions at all. Tevva’s 7.5t battery-electric truck offers up to 140 miles (227 km) from its 105 kWh battery on a single charge.
Electric trucks, Tevva CEO Bennett comments the news
Tevva started mass producing and selling its 7.5t battery-electric truck in January following European Community Whole Vehicle Type Approval (ECWVTA). “We know first hand that demand for electric trucks is growing at speed, as we have been inundated with requests for our 7.5t battery-electric truck since going into full production last month. Now we are able to offer UK organisations a noticeable discount, thanks to the government grant, which will surely make zero emission trucking even more appealing to fleets”, commented Tevva Founder and CEO Asher Bennett.
