Tevva opens R&D base at MIRA Technology Park
Electric truck manufacturer Tevva has opened a new R&D base at the MIRA Technology Park in Nuneaton. The base places the company in close proximity to HORIBA MIRA’s specialist engineering and testing capabilities, including extensive crash testing, climatic, dynamics and aerodynamic resources.
Tevva says it will also give more opportunities to partner with engineers and researchers working at the cutting edge of electric vehicle technology. Additionally, it illustrates Tevva’s intentions as a new OEM and, potentially, will attract even more talent to its rapidly growing team.
At the MIRA Technology Park, Tevva’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.
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.”
Tim Nathan, managing director of MIRA Technology Park, added: “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.”
