Volta Trucks has confirmed the promotion and appointment of Ian Collins as its new Chief Product Officer, with immediate effect.

Collins joined the automaker in August 2020 as Engineering Director.

In his new role, Collins will be responsible for the development of the product roadmap and lifecycle preparation for Volta Trucks, including all features, attributes, and specifications throughout all sectors and markets.

He will also lead the design and development of all automobiles and products, from initial concept through to market launch. His responsibility will also concern overseeing the automaker’s Procurement and Quality functions, working with best-in-class partners, and ensuring that consumer’s expectations are exceeded throughout the life of the automobile.

The announcement comes immediately after the revealing of the company’s first running prototype chassis, finished with a production-specification frame and drivetrain. The prototype chassis is the precursor to the Pilot Fleet expected to be delivered this year to start internal and customer testing and evaluation. Full-scale production of customer-specification vehicles will then follow at the end of the next year.

Ian Collins joined Volta Trucks from the start-up electric passenger car brand, Polestar, where he held the position of Head of UK Research and Development. There he was responsible for the creation of Polestar’s UK engineering facility and the appointment of a team of 120 engineers and designers. Before that, he was Technical Director and CEO of Emerald Automotive Design, a Geely Group company that provided the LEVC TX e-city taxi from initial concept through to series production. He has also worked in senior engineering management positions at McLaren Automotive and Rover Group.
