Volta Trucks will accelerate the market launch of its Volta Zero electric trucks in Sweden, with the target to put the very first vehicles on the road by June 2023. Volta Trucks, a Swedish company by the way, had previously communicated its intentions to start selling electric trucks in Sweden only in 2024.
The manufacturer will accelerate market launch “due to increased demand and rapidly growing interest among customers operating in Scandinavia”. Indeed, the 16 and 18-tonne version of the all-electric Volta Zero fits perfectly in the Scandinavian city transport sector, where Medium Duty trucks are the most common vehicles used for goods being transported into larger cities such as Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö.
Volta Trucks electric vehicles soon available in Sweden
“Sweden has a long and proud heritage of producing high-quality commercial vehicles and at Volta Trucks, we have identified an interesting slice of the total transport market in the Medium Duty segment for urban deliveries. We care about cities, their people, and our planet. The Volta Zero has been designed from the ground up as an all-electric vehicle with zero tailpipe emissions, and has been purpose-built for urban transportation with safety and sustainability at the heart of what we do”, commented Carl-Magnus Norden, the Swedish Founder of Volta Trucks.
“We are currently in dialogue with several large Swedish transport providers and our objective is to ensure they can obtain vehicles from our customer experience fleet in mid-2023. These extended test drives will enable customers to fully evaluate the truck on the local roads and understand how this new all-electric Volta Zero, together with Volta Trucks’ unique Truck as a Service (TaaS) offering, will fit into their current fleet and daily operations”, added Volta Trucks CEO, Essa Al-Saleh.
