Tevva Motors’ three electric range-extended truck prototypes have now covered a combined total distance of 27,000 miles in less than six months. All three vehicles were put through their paces at Millbrook Proving Ground in the UK and on roads across the length and breadth of the country, as well as in daily operations with UPS.
Each has performed outstandingly with the reliability of the trio enabling a greater distance to be covered than expected. This also enabled the development team to really put its predictive range extender management system (PREMS) to the test, developing the software as well as the powertrain technology.
The UPS vehicle also continues to impress, being driven and managed using the same methods and routines as the rest of the UPS delivery fleet.
