Volta Trucks has confirmed that a full-electric Volta Zero will be unveiled at an online launch event at 10:00 BST on Thursday 3 September 2020.
Initially, a purpose-built full-electric large commercial vehicle designed particularly for inner-city freight and parcel distribution, the introduction of the Volta Zero represents a major moment for society’s movement towards zero-emission cities, and enhancements in safety for all road users.
The online launch event will provide a glimpse of a number of Volta Trucks’ speakers and a media, customer, and investor virtual audience. Immediately after the launch event, media guests can participate in two online interview sessions (English and French languages) with Volta Trucks’ Chief Executive Officer, Rob Fowler. Requests to attend either virtual interview session can be mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The launch event can be viewed on the Volta Trucks website, www.voltatrucks.com. It will also be broadcast at https://www.linkedin.com/events/thelaunchofthevoltazero/
Declaring the date of the launch, Chief Executive Officer of Volta Trucks, Rob Fowler, said; “Three years after the Volta Zero was first conceived, I am delighted that we will soon be able to reveal the vehicle. In 2017, we realized the opportunity that providing a large zero-emission inner-city delivery vehicle could bring to the logistics industry, but also to the inhabitants of the city that it serves.
“Reducing pollution, improving safety, providing fleet operators a credible alternative to the internal combustion engine, and helping them with the migration to electrification, were our main drivers at the outset. The Volta Zero has over-delivered on all of these ambitions. Despite the headwinds we have all experienced in 2020, we will launch the Volta Zero on time, which is a testament to a strong team, and fantastic partners. I’m really looking forward to unveiling the Volta Zero, and seeing the truck used in our first pilot trials soon.”
