Volta Trucks set a partnership with software-based solutions provider Sibros to deliver fully connected vehicle systems to electric commercial vehicle fleets. Sibros is a pioneer of deep Over-the-Air (OTA) connected vehicle systems and will provide end-to-end software and data solutions that begin with the integration of the Sibros OTA Deep Logger to provide Volta Trucks with real time, relevant, vehicle and fleet data management.
«The connected vehicle platform will allow customers access to driver alerts, charging infrastructure, over-the-air updates for navigation and content as well as service, insurance, and maintenance data. This will increase productivity and bring efficiency and profitability to its customers’ businesses. It will provide Volta Trucks with full transparency and control over what data is collected and who it’s shared with, enabling customers to benefit from, and better understand, their data», stated the Swedish start-up (here’s an interview to get to know them better). Volta Trucks has just announced remarkable pre-order levels as well as new funding for 37 million euro.
