Tevva Motors has received a commendation in the powered transport award category at the 2015-16 Rushlight Awards for the development of its electric range-extended powertrains.
Held at London’s Royal College of Surgeons of England, Tevva was commended for a significant achievement “that has resulted in the commercial development of forms of transport for land, sea or air, resulting in a significantly improved embedded environmental footprint”.
Asher Bennett, CEO and founder of Tevva Motors, said: “We are truly honoured to receive this commendation at the Rushlight Awards.
"The recognition we have received for our electric range-extender powertrains represents a significant step in highlighting our capabilities as we target our next phase of investment for production.”
Tevva’s electric range extender powertrain can either be fitted on the production line during the build process or as a retrofit package to an existing vehicle.
It is controlled by Tevva’s Predictive Range Extender Management System (PREMS), which enables the most efficient use of the range extender without driver input.
This ensures the range extender is only used when necessary, such as on motorways, while electric-only propulsion can be used in areas of poor air quality such as towns and cities.
