British electric truck manufacturer Tevva has opened its research and development (R&D) facility for advanced automotive technology in Nuneaton.
The base at MIRA Technology Park in Warwickshire provides the company with a proximity to HORIBA MIRA’s specialist engineering and testing capabilities, including extensive crash testing, climatic, dynamics and aerodynamic resources.
Tevva’s trucks have already undergone extensive trials, including software and climatic testing, at MIRA Technology Park as the company gears up for series production of its electric truck, due to begin shortly at its main UK base Tevva London.
Ken Scott, Chief Engineer at Tevva said: “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.
“This move clearly demonstrates that Tevva is growing at a rate of knots.”
