British electric truck manufacturer Tevva has recently inaugurated a base at MIRA Technology Park, a primary automotive hub located in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, not far from the cities of Birmingham and Coventry. The base provides the company with a proximity to HORIBA MIRA’s specialist engineering and testing capabilities among them extensive crash testing, climatic, dynamics and aerodynamic resources.
Additionally, having an office on the world-renowned campus also gives Tevva more opportunity to partner with engineers and researchers working at the cutting edge of electric vehicle technology. Tevva – which has recently announced an agreement with Loop Energy as for fuel cells – are no strangers to MIRA Technology Park, where the company’s trucks have already undergone extensive trials, including software and climatic testing, as the company gears up for series production of its truck which is due to begin shortly at its main UK base Tevva London.

«MIRA Technology Park is second to none when it comes to automotive engineering and testing. Our trucks, both now and in the future, will undergo development there. Having a base there makes perfect sense as having a physical presence there will help us develop our technologies more rapidly. It also means lower overall costs for our research and development», said Ken Scott, Chief Engineer at Tevva.
«We’re delighted to be supporting Tevva with the development of its pioneering electric truck, providing engineering and test consultancy from concept design through to final validation. The unique combination of engineering expertise, advanced testing facilities and prime location of MIRA Technology Park in the heart of the UK automotive industry, ensures Tevva can develop and validate their vehicles in one place», replied Tim Nathan, Managing Director of MIRA Technology Park.
