Bharat Forge has announced that it has made a strategic investment of £10 million in UK-based Tevva Motors. Providing electric powertrain solutions for commercial vehicles and buses in the 7.5- to 14-tonnes weight range, Tevva Motors, with the new funding, will scale up its operations in UK and get more electric trucks onto Britain’s roads. Looking at extending the development of electric powetrain in the form of patented software and Predictive Range Extender Management System (PREMS) to new CVs – trucks and buses, that would actively and autonomously enable the rise of electric drive in low carbon zones, Tevva would help Bharat Forge to commercialise Tevva technology within India, and to strengthen its research and development activities in the e-mobility space. The investment in Tevva marks Bharat Forge’s third major initiative in the EV space, and comes shortly after the start of the ‘Engineering and Development Centre’ at MIRA, UK, and the investment in Tork Motorcycles, India. The investment in Tevva is expected to help Bharat Forge to stay ahead in the fast-growing EV market to identify technology trends and co-develop solutions for electric mobility in India and abroad.
