Casper Norden, Chief Fleet Solutions Officer at Volta Trucks said; “We are delighted to announce TOP TRUCK as our first Certified Service Partner for France, Spain and Italy. Certified Service Partners are an integral part of our strategy for vehicle care, further supporting operations in cities and urban environments outside the vicinity of our Truck as a Service Hub locations. Servicing and maintenance is a cornerstone of the TaaS proposition, so with our Hub locations and Certified Service Partners working together, we’re providing customers with a comprehensive solution and ongoing confidence in the uptime of their Volta Zero.”

Robert Stevens, Director of Workshop Networks & Technology at GROUPAUTO International said: “GROUPAUTO’s priority is to prepare our networks for the future.

Notes to Editor

The Volta Zero is the world’s first purpose-built all-electric 16-tonne vehicle designed for urban logistics, reducing the environmental impact of freight deliveries in city centres. The Volta Zero is designed from the ground up with an operating pure-electric range of 150 – 200 kms (95 – 125 miles). 

Safety is also at the heart of Volta Trucks, with the ambition to produce the safest trucks for our cities. 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.

Volta Trucks is also innovating with its Truck as a Service proposition that has revolutionised the financing and servicing of commercial vehicle fleets. Truck as a Service offers fleet managers a frictionless and hassle-free way to electrify their fleet by offering an all-inclusive service for a single, affordable, monthly fee. It provides access to an all-electric Volta Zero, with its charging infrastructure needs provided by world-leader Siemens, insurance through Europe’s premier insurtech broker, Qover, and servicing, maintenance, and training requirements, maximising the uptime and operational efficiency of the vehicle.
