Volta Trucks is the leading full-electric large commercial vehicle manufacturer and services company. Volta Trucks has offices in Sweden, France and the UK and is partnering with a number of global leaders in the supply chain for the development and production of the Volta Zero. The Volta Zero is the world’s first purpose-built full-electric 16-tonne commercial vehicle designed for inner-city logistics, reducing the environmental impact of freight deliveries in city centres. Designed from the ground up with an operating pure-electric range of 150 - 200 kms (95 – 125 miles), the Volta Zero will eliminate an estimated 1.2M tonnes of CO2 by 2025. But for Volta Trucks, sustainability is much more than just the removal of harmful tailpipe emissions. We constantly strive to reduce the overall environmental impact of our vehicles and the components they're built from, through our supply chain and manufacturing footprint. Safety is also at the heart of Volta Trucks, with its ambition of producing the safest trucks for our cities. The Volta Zero was designed for electric from the outset, which facilitates a step-change in vehicle, driver and pedestrian safety. Thanks to the removal of the internal combustion engine, the operator of a Volta Zero sits in a central driving position, with a much lower seat height than a conventional truck. This combination, plus a glass house-style cab design, gives the driver a wide 220-degrees of visibility, minimising dangerous blind spots and improving visual communication with vulnerable road users around the vehicle such as cyclists and pedestrians.
