Tevva is a hydrogen electric truck company with a spectrum of options for zero-emission medium to heavy-duty trucks. Their revolutionary hydrogen fuel-cell range extension technology allows their vehicles to do all the work of a diesel, with total peace of mind about cost, range and environmental impact. Tevva remains focused on building and delivering the 7.5-tonne battery-electric vehicle. Testing and development of its hydrogen-electric counterpart continues apace. Tevva hydrogen-electric truck clocks up 350 miles in wintry range test.
Charlie Cordell, Byron Dolman, Ryan Clark and Toby Hurst were doing exactly that recently, with a ‘range test’ of Tevva’s dual-energy prototype truck. The exercise saw the foursome accumulate more than 1,000km (approximately 620 miles) in the 7.5t hydrogen-electric vehicle. The road was between Tevva’s London HQ and the Scottish border at Berwick-on-Tweed – England’s most northernmost town.
The return journey saw the truck cover almost 350 miles alone, without needing a single stop for recharging. This was made possible by the truck’s hydrogen fuel cell which tops up the range-extended (Rex) vehicle’s lithium battery when needed.

Lead Engineer, Tevva Rex, Charlie Cordell said: “It was an amazing trip and we were so pleased the truck covered so many miles on the return leg, without the need to stop for a charge.
“The trip was a terrific demonstration of the range you can achieve in a truck that uses a blended system of electric and hydrogen. The freezing conditions were extremely challenging, but helpful too, in allowing us to gather important data about vehicle performance, meaning we could make tweaks here and there and tailor its development.”
Tevva’s approach to hydrogen technology
Tevva’s revolutionary hydrogen fuel-cell range extension technology enables its vehicles to do all the work of diesel. With total peace of mind about cost, range, and environmental impact.
By adding hydrogen into the energy mix, Tevva delivers a solution that gives operators the ability to decarbonise their fleets. The company is taking a dual-energy approach to zero-emission mobility. It is utilising the best of battery-electric and hydrogen technology to maximise the performance of their vehicles.
Tevva is an active player in helping build the battery-electric and hydrogen infrastructure ecosystem. It recognises that the speed and scalability of hydrogen refuelling systems will be crucial to adoption while keeping costs under control.
As low-carbon hydrogen becomes cheaper and more widely available, hydrogen refuelling will become as convenient as diesel refuelling is today. Tevva is actively working with hydrogen and refuelling station suppliers to establish low-carbon hydrogen services for customers. Leading the drive to zero-emissions freight and urban logistics.
Tevva is committed to making hydrogen convenient, affordable and sustainable for its customers.
