Tevva Motors has gone from strength to strength since its launch in Brentwood, Essex in September 2013: indeed, last year saw the tech firm accompany former prime minister Theresa May on a trade visit to China; attract investment of £10m from Indian metals business Bharat Forge to boost its global expansion plans; and see parcels giant UPS announce it was using Tevva’s technology across its Birmingham and Southampton fleets.

Ahead of the firm’s appearance at London’s Freight in the City Expo on 6 November, our sister title Motor Transport caught up with sales and marketing director David Thackray to find out what's next in Tevva's growth plans.

  • Tevva's David Thackray will be taking part in this year's Freight in the City Expo on 6 November in London, both in a lively panel debate about the pace of technology change to meet city regulations, as well as a quick-fire 'Tech Talk' to give you a flavour of how range-extenders work in real-life operations. The expo is free to attend and not only brings together a full day's conference programme for delegates, but also provides an exciting exhibition of the latest urban logistics vehicles under one roof, from last-mile cargo bikes through to electric trucks and biomethane-powered refuse lorries.
