Volta Trucks, a leading and disruptive all-electric commercial vehicle manufacturer and services provider, will present the Volta Zero truck to Dutch customers as it continues its successful European tour into the Netherlands.
This follows the recent UK roadshow and events in Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Milan, Munich and Frankfurt where nearly 1,000 individual customer demonstrations of the Volta Zero electric truck have been undertaken. As a result, this has led to over 2,500 pre-orders with an order value exceeding €600 million (£510 million/$693 million).
The Volta Zero will make its Dutch debut at Zero Emission : EcoMobiel on 12-14 October in Brabanthallen, Holland. The exhibition has grown to become the largest platform for sustainable mobility and mobility management. The presentation here also coincides with the launch of Volta’s Dutch-language website.
The introduction to Holland comes at the same time as a significant expansion of the company’s European presence with in-market business development managers that are now operating in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK.
The teams of Michaela Pellegrino and Ileana Centorame (Italy), William Carlsson and Chris Heddle (UK), Maxime Hourquin (Spain), Anthony Buron (France) and Celina Mittelsten Scheid in Germany are already working with prospects and customers to help support their migration to fully-electric commercial vehicles and to decarbonise their fleets.
Carla Detrieux, Volta Trucks business development director, said: “Having already visited many European markets, I’m delighted that we can bring the Volta Zero to the Netherlands.
“The Volta Zero has received a very positive reception across Europe where we’ve undertaken nearly 1,000 demonstrations and, as a result, have taken over 2,500 pre-orders. This clearly shows the significant customer demand we already have in the market.
“To be able to further capitalise on this momentum, we now have in-market business development managers supporting our customers across France, Spain, Italy, Germany and the UK.
“Our team of experts can help customers understand how the Volta Zero can decarbonise their fleets, as we look towards having the first Volta Zero vehicles on the road next year.”
