Volta Trucks will start producing the first Volta Zero 16-ton electric trucks addressed to customers in Q2, 2023. The trucks will be made in Austria, at the Steyr Automotive factory, as announced by the company in 2022. Moreover, customer production orders are already scheduled for the first 300 manufacturing slots of its full-electric e-truck. The associated revenue amounts to more than €85 million.
Volta Trucks’ plans for 2023, according to CEO Al-Saleh
“Volta Trucks has made important progress in the first few weeks of 2023, confirming more than 300 customer truck orders for the first vehicles off our production line in Austria. This covers a meaningful portion of our 2023 production targets, before customers have pilot tested the vehicles. This is a major achievement and demonstrates the compelling features of the Volta Zero and the trust that our customers have in our ability to deliver,” said CEO Essa Al-Saleh.
“We are poised for a successful first year of sales and production. We are confident and focused on delivering on our strategic ambitions and purpose to decarbonise and improve the safety of city-centres,” he concluded.
