Volta Trucks Seeks Manufacturing Sites For The All-New Volta Zero

Volta Trucks has confirmed that it is investigating potential sites in Barcelona alongside the UK and Europe for manufacturing of the Volta Zero, as part of the Decarbonisation Hub project.

The Volta Zero is the first fully electric 16-tonne vehicle exclusively designed for urban cargo distribution, designed to reduce the environmental impact of freight deliveries in city centres. With a comprehensive design that includes a range of between 150 and 200 km through a fully electric propulsion system, it is estimated that by 2025 the Volta Zero will have prevented the production of almost 1.2 million tons of CO 2.

The announcement comes as the commercial vehicle arrives in Spain to continue its European tour of customer events. The Volta Zero will also be displayed at the MercaMadrid between Monday 12 April and Thursday 22 April.

Volta Trucks’ Chief Technology Officer, Kjell Waloen, said; We have been investigating and evaluating a number of European manufacturing partners and facilities for many months, and are narrowing down the field to a small group of finalists. Assembling the Volta Zero in Spain could be of interest, to serve southern European cities for whom decarbonisation of commercial vehicles is becoming an ever-stronger priority. We will conclude our investigations shortly but having an option to manufacture the Volta Zero in Barcelona could be interesting for us.”(MT)
