Volta Trucks revealed some important details about its TaaS hub in London, the second to be open after the hub revealed not long ago in Paris. According to the manufacturer’s strategy, the hubs will be crucial to manage Volta’s Truck as a Service (TaaS) strategy in the main European countries. Some more are expected to be open in Italy, Germany, Spain and Holland.
The Volta Trucks Hub in London is on White Hart Lane in Tottenham, north London, near many of Volta Trucks initial UK-based customers, and within easy reach of all of east and west London’s significant logistics centres. The facility covers 30,000 sq feet, operating eight workshop bays. It will also accommodate a showroom, admin offices, a Volta Trucks Academy training centre and Call Centre that will provide the interface between customers and the company’s team of technical and commercial experts.
Volta Trucks: some details about the hub to be open in London
The property, managed by LaSalle Investment Management, has a photovoltaic panel system on its roof, converting sunlight into energy for the site, and a passive solar wall, optimising the heating and ventilation of the building. It is also designed with a charging infrastructure to support 50kW fast charging of Volta Zero vehicles while they are being maintained.
According to Volta Trucks, Truck as a Service will accelerate the adoption of electric commercial vehicles by delivering a frictionless and hassle-free way to electrify fleets, while de-risking the migration for fleet operators. Truck as a Service supports every step of the electrification migration by offering a single, affordable, monthly fee that funds the use of a full-electric Volta Zero vehicle, and all of its servicing, maintenance, insurance and training requirements, maximising the uptime and operational efficiency of the vehicle.
