Volta Trucks launches its latest customer and media website, reflecting its people-focused approach to decarbonising logistics
By Duncan Forrester | 19 March 2021
Volta Trucks, the leading full-electric commercial vehicle manufacturer, has launched its
latest customer and media website, as it transitions from a start-up and the launch of the
Volta Zero, to a scale-up company with Pilot Fleet vehicles being evaluated by customers on
European roads later this year. The new website reflects the people-focused approach Volta
Trucks is taking to decarbonise urban logistics, and thus creating a better environment for
The new English and French language websites give insights into the Volta Trucks brand pillars of Sustainability, Safety and Truck as a Service, including an immersive 360-degree experience of the cab environment. This clearly shows how the Volta Zero will exceed the recently launched Transport for London five-star Direct Vision Standard. The product pages also give an in-depth understanding and technical specification of the Volta Zero. The Media website and careers pages remain, with numerous new roles advertised as the company expands and searches for the next generation of electrification engineers and commercial experts.
Chief Executive Officer of Volta Trucks, Rob Fowler, said;
"At Volta Trucks, we are building electric commercial vehicles for the zero-emission, sustainable cities that we see being introduced around the world all the time. And we are a people-focused business, concentrating on making vulnerable road users safer, improving the air quality that city dwellers breathe, while improving the working environments of truck drivers, and supporting fleet operators to be more efficient, sustainable, and profitable. People are at the heart of everything we do. Our website is our company’s online shop window and I’m delighted to see it perfectly reflect our place in society, accelerating change towards a decarbonised future."

About the Volta Zero.
The Volta Zero is the world’s first purpose-built full-electric 16-tonne vehicle designed for
inner-city freight deliveries, reducing the environmental impact of freight deliveries in city
centres. Designed from the ground up with an operating pure-electric range of 150 - 200 kms
(95 – 125 miles), the Volta Zero will eliminate an estimated 180,000 tonnes of CO 2 by 2025.
Safety is also at the heart of Volta Trucks, with its ambition of being the safest large commercial vehicle manufacturer. The Volta Zero was designed for electric from the outset, which facilitates a step-change in vehicle, driver and pedestrian safety. Thanks to the removal of the internal combustion engine, the operator of a Volta Zero sits in a central driving position, with a much lower seat height than a conventional truck. This combination, plus a glass house-style cab design, gives the driver a wide 220-degrees of visibility, minimising dangerous blind spots.
The prototype Volta Zero was launched in September 2020, with the first vehicles expected to be operating with customers in late 2021.
