Tevva partners with Ecobat for first-life battery management
Partnership starts with 12-month pilot for battery handling and repair with opportunity to expand into repurposing and recycling
Electric vehicle manufacturer Tevva has entered into a strategic partnership with Ecobat for the repair, repurposing and recycling of its lithium-ion batteries. The partnership kicks off with a 12-month pilot phase for first-life battery management, with the opportunity to expand into additional energy storage and recycling solutions.
In the unlikely case that an issue arises during vehicle life, Ecobat will ensure Tevva's in-house assembled lithium-ion batteries are handled, diagnosed, and repaired using the most effective and environmentally friendly methods.
Tevva is committed to circular economy principles, zero waste, and reducing costs when it comes to managing the most expensive item on its electric trucks - the lithium-ion battery. By engaging Ecobat, the company is minimizing potential impacts on the environment.
Tevva's 7.5t battery-electric truck has recently entered mass production at the company's London facility. The Tevva truck offers up to 140 miles (227 kilometres) from its 105 kWh battery on a single charge, and is ideal for last-mile and urban delivery fleets. This will be followed by a 7.5t hydrogen-electric truck, which benefits from a hydrogen range-extender that enhances vehicle range to up to 354 miles (570 km).
