After the very first hub inaugurated not long ago in Paris, Volta Trucks has recently opened its second European hub in London, precisely in the Tottenham area. Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, participated in the inauguration ceremony of the new facility.
Located on White Hart Lane in Tottenham, North London, the cutting-edge facility is the first to open in the UK and is designed to be the main destination for routine servicing and maintenance of vehicles in the London area. The innovative Hub will provide everything a fleet operator needs to support their seamless transition to electric trucks, also hosting admin offices, a Volta Trucks Academy Training centre and a customer call centre that will provide 24/7 assistance and technical support.

Together with Engineering, Software and Development facilities in the Midlands, and the company’s Reading-based commercial operations, the opening of the London Hub brings Volta Trucks’ own UK organisation to over 600 highly skilled employees.
“Zero-emission freight is an area which has been considered a significant barrier in the shift to decarbonising road transport”, said the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan. “That is why I’m delighted to support Volta Trucks, who have recently launched the London trial of their first fully electric heavy goods vehicle (HGV). The new Volta Zero vehicle is the future of London’s freight – world-leading in terms of green technology, while also meeting the highest safety standard which can be awarded to an HGV.”
“The opening of our Truck as a Service Hub in Tottenham is an exciting milestone for Volta Trucks towards our vision of zero-tailpipe emission cities. By establishing a strong presence in London and other major European cities, we aim to revolutionise the way that goods are delivered and transported in cities, accelerating the adoption of electric commercial vehicles, and paving the way for a cleaner and greener future”, added Casper Norden, Chief Fleet Solutions Officer of Volta Trucks.
