Tevva used the Road Transport Expo to launch what it says will be the first hydrogen fuel cell truck to be designed and mass produced in the UK.
The 7.5-tonner, which goes into production in spring 2023, features an 80kWh battery and a 50kW fuel cell and will have a range of up to 310 miles.
The fuel cell system tops up the battery, extending the vehicle’s range and allowing the truck to carry heavier loads over longer distances.
Unveiling the new trucks, Tevva chief executive and founder Asher Bennett said: “This is a huge milestone for us. By embracing hydrogen, we are futureproofing ourselves, our clients and the industries and communities they operate in.”
Meanwhile its 7.5-tonne battery-electric truck will go into production this summer, with first deliveries expected in the autumn.
The Tilbury-based company, which has so far raised $140m (£115m) of funding, is also looking to set up a factory in the USA.
A spokesman revealed that its location has been narrowed down to two states, with a decision expected in the next couple of months.
