Volta Zero takes centre stage at RTX 2024


Volta Trucks attended the RTX 2024 following its successful return from insolvency with a renewed mission and strategic focus. Showcasing the Volta Zero, the ambitious EV firm has re-emerged with a resilient supply chain, committed customers, suppliers, and a laser-like focus on productivity.

Volta Trucks remains committed to helping customers make the seamless transition to advanced electric vehicles. Taking centre stage at the Birmingham event is the Volta Zero, the world’s first purpose-built 16-tonne electric truck designed to revolutionise urban deliveries with a next generation driving experience.

The company is poised to accelerate its mission of electrification and urban decarbonization with expanded product options thanks to a focus on chassis-cab production. This shift towards a client-centric “OEM-approach” enables customers to tailor Volta Trucks to their individual needs. Chassis builders will only be limited by their creativity when exploring the body options enabled by Volta’s renewed approach.

Furthermore, Volta’s recent announcement confirming its partnership with Sapphire Vehicle Services guarantees uptimes via a best-in-class service network.

Volta Trucks remains steadfast in its mission to revolutionize urban freight transport. Essa Al-Saleh, CEO, recently outlined the company’s plans to resume production with a focus on four critical markets – UK, Germany, France and Scandinavia. Live customer trials have successfully resumed in the UK with a fleet of 15 vehicles soon available across other markets.

Essa said, “The goal is to provide first customer deliveries by year end. Our attendance at RTX 2024 is a key milestone in showcasing our return with a renewed sense of confidence and readiness to deliver on our ambitious goals.”

Created from scratch as a native electric vehicle, the Volta Zero cabin enhances driver safety and accessibility. The harmonious design language is underpinned by class leading components, with suppliers selected for their market-leading solutions. The Volta Zero is amongst the safest trucks on the market, having received a 5-star Direct Vision Standard (DVS) rating.

Volta Trucks invites industry professionals, media, and the public to experience the future of urban freight transport. With robust strategies and innovative designs, Volta is committed to making cities safer, quieter, and more sustainable.
