Volta Trucks will be showcasing its fully electric Volta Zero across the UK throughout September at a series of consumer events.
The UK roadshow follows the European tour which consisted of Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Milan, Munich, and Frankfurt where more than 700 individual customer demonstrations of the Volta Zero were undertaken.
The UK tour initially kicks off with the EV Summit at the Saïd Business School at Oxford University on 1st and 2nd September where founder and executive chairman of Volta Trucks, Carl-Magnus Norden, will present in the electric vehicle design panel debate.
The EV Summit brings together business leaders and key players working on electric vehicles, energy, information technology and charging infrastructure, to explore how the world advances to full, battery electric, e-mobility.
The following days will also see the Volta Zero presented at the Lunch! Contemporary Food To-Go Show at ExCeL, London. Lunch! is a leading event for the café, coffee shop and food-to-go sector. Volta will aim to demonstrate the suitability of its refrigerated variant for the food and beverage industry and for last-mile deliveries. The Volta Zero will be presented with Nobl Thirst, formerly Drinks Cubed – Volta Trucks’ first customer.
Concluding the UK roadshow will be a Volta Trucks display at Freight in the City at London’s Alexandra Palace on Tuesday 28th September, amongst many other commercial vehicle brands. The presentation of the Volta Zero at Freight in the City is symbolic as it was two years since Founder, Carl-Magnus Norden, and co-founder, Kjell Waloen, gave a presentation on the future of Volta Trucks and its first vehicle, the full-electric Volta Zero. Two years later, the vehicle will be on display at the event.
Volta Trucks’ UK business development manager, William Carlsson, said; “I’m delighted that we can bring the Volta Zero to the UK customers at such an important time for the country’s transition to a zero-emission economy, with the United Nations COP26 Climate Change Conference in Glasgow just a few months away.
“The Volta Zero has received a very positive reception across Europe where our customers have appreciated how the truck’s fully electric powertrain can support their sustainability ambitions, and that the ground-up approach we’ve taken to design helps us deliver a safer and more comfortable working environment for drivers. London is one of our initial launch markets and important for Volta Trucks so bringing the Volta Zero to UK customers to better understand their needs will give us vital learnings as we plan for the first vehicles to be on the UK’s roads next year.”
