The Tevva electric truck at MTI will help students and apprentices to understand electric powertrains

Students and apprentices at the MIRA Technology Institute (MTI) have welcomed the delivery of a brand-new electric truck.

The vehicle will help them get to grips with the latest electric vehicle technology. The 7.5 tonne Tevva battery electric truck is based at the MTI’s workshops and will be instantly accessible for every student enabling them to see how the technology works in practice.

With a course series developed to deliver vital skills to the automotive sector as part of the electric revolution, the MTI enables students to gain an awareness and understanding of electric and hybrid vehicles, so that they can learn how to inspect, diagnose and rectify systems and components.

Lisa Bingley, Operations Director for the MTI said, “The presence of the Tevva vehicle in our workshop will really help to contextualise students’ knowledge and enhance their learning experience and understanding of EV technology.”

Ken Scott, Managing Director of Tevva said, “The decarbonisation of trucking and wider transportation not only relies on new technology, but people. We need people with the skills and knowledge of how battery-electric and hydrogen-electric powertrains work so Tevva is delighted to be part of this vital endeavour.”
