TG Lynes has announced the addition of a 7.5-tonne electric truck to its fleet. This move positions TG Lynes as one of the first businesses in London to operate such a vehicle, furthering its commitment to sustainable transport.

Based in Enfield, TG Lynes has invested in a UK-manufactured Tevva battery-electric truck to handle local deliveries within the capital. These fully electric trucks are just beginning to enter mass production, with only a few currently operational in London.

“We are excited to take ownership of this advanced Tevva truck, marking a significant step in our journey toward Net Zero,” said Andrew Ingram, Managing Director of TG Lynes. He emphasised the importance of more businesses transitioning to electric vehicles to reduce emissions.

The Tevva truck, which can travel up to 140 miles on a single charge of its 105kWh battery, is one of three electric vehicles weighing between 4,250kg and 12,000kg that qualify for the government’s plug-in truck grant (PITrG).

TG Lynes’ adoption of the Tevva truck follows the introduction of low-carbon Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) vehicles to its 18-tonne fleet last year, which are 90 percent more carbon-efficient. The company has also installed a 10,000-litre HVO tank for on-site refueling and a new electric dropside van. Additionally, a 110kW solar system on the roof of its headquarters supplies more than half of the energy needed for its operations.

Andrew Ingram added, “We are taking comprehensive steps to minimise our environmental impact, from sustainable fuel use to ethical sourcing and recycling. Sustainability is a core value at TG Lynes.”
