Volta Trucks, a leading fully-electric commercial vehicle manufacturer, has confirmed the Volta Zero will be travelling to Italy. It will make its Italian debut in Milan 7-11 June.
The Volta Zero is the first purpose-built all-electric large commercial vehicle designed for city centre logistics. The events are designed to encourage the use of zero-emission vehicles for haulage and last-mile deliveries to help with a cleaner future.
The customer event in Italy comes soon after similar successful French and Spanish events. These events have seen over 600 individual demonstrations of the Volta Zero in COVID-secure environments.
The arrival in Italy also follows the company’s recently announced Europe-first principles within its Road-to-Zero Emissions strategy. Volta Trucks are set to launch four full-electric commercial vehicles and increase its projected sales volumes to over 27,000 by 2025.
Italian fleet operators and customers will be able to experience the Volta Zero in Peschiera Borromeo, Milan. It will be displayed in conjunction with Volta Trucks partner, DB Schenker. Volta Trucks has also launched a new Italian website where bookings can be made to attend a demonstration.
Carla Detrieux, business development director of Volta Trucks, said: “Introducing Italian customers and fleet operators to the Volta Zero in Milan is an exciting continuation of our European tour of sustainability-focused cities.
“With our focus on safety, thanks to the design freedoms offered by the compact electric drivetrain, and our sustainability ambitions, we are seeing an ever-increasing demand from customers who are on their own journeys to decarbonise their operations.
“Volta Trucks, and the Volta Zero, are the perfect partner for those customers, and with our Truck as a Service proposition, we support customers on every step of the migration to electrification.”
