The confirmed orders will translate to more than €85 million in associated revenue, the company said.
Volta Zeros are due to start rolling off the production line of the company’s manufacturing facility in Steyr, Austria, in the second quarter of this year, with the plant ready to meet the strong customer demand for its purpose-built full-electric medium duty urban delivery truck, the company said.
“Volta Trucks has made important progress in the first few weeks of 2023, confirming more than 300 customer truck orders for the first vehicles off our production line in Austria,” said Essa Al-Saleh, Chief Executive Officer of Volta Trucks. “This covers a meaningful portion of our 2023 production targets, before customers have pilot tested the vehicles.”
The company said it is confident and focused on delivering on its strategic ambitions and purpose to decarbonise and improve the safety of city-centres.
Volta Zero is the world’s first purpose-built full-electric 16-tonne vehicle designed for urban logistics. With 150-225 kWh of battery power, located between the chassis rails as the safest possible location, the Volta Zero will deliver a range of 150-200 km, which is more than sufficient for distribution in city centres, the company said.
