The funding, which also supports Tevva’s partner Advanced Electric Machines (AEM), will accelerate the Sustainable, Affordable, Next Generation Range-Extended EVs for Advanced Logistics (SANGREAL) Project
London, UK,  October 2021: Tevva, the electric truck pioneer, is pleased to announce that it has received £4.2 million, the majority share of a £5.7 million total grant from the UK’s Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC). This grant will help finance the development of Tevva’s next generation, zero-emission, long-range medium duty trucks (7.5 to 19t Gross Vehicle Weight).
The grant will be utilised to advance the SANGREAL Project, a £12.2 million collaboration between Tevva and Advanced Electric Machines (AEM), an internationally recognised designer and manufacturer whose vision is to build the most sustainable motors in the world.
As the electrification of the Medium to Heavy Duty truck market has largely been overlooked, Tevva and AEM will build upon their combined, existing and world-class experience in commercial vehicle electrification to accelerate the development of Tevva’s fuel cell range extended Medium to Heavy Duty Commercial Electric Vehicles for the 7.5–19t “back to base” logistics market.
The project involves the design and development of an innovative electric transaxle and intelligent vehicle propulsion control system with on-board telematics which is designed to optimise the use of the H2 Fuel Cell Range extender for operating range and reliability and enable predictive and preventative servicing.
SANGREAL will create and safeguard vital UK-based research and manufacturing jobs, delivering cost and environmental benefits to the industry as well as to social stakeholders and the public. It will ensure that the UK remains at the forefront of the global fight against climate change, as Britain continues its pledge to Build Back Better, cementing its position as a world leader in the development of sustainable, low carbon automotive technologies.
