Volta Trucks has taken a new step in the development of its Volta Zero electric truck. The company & agrave; has made it known that & egrave; the first road test phase of the electric truck was completed, conducted in collaboration with DB Schenker, one of the world's leading logistics service providers and European road transport leader. Therefore, it is not & egrave; treaty of tests in limited environments such as in test tracks, but tests carried out on the road and in real distribution environments in Paris .
DB Schenker began collaborating with Volta Trucks in 2021, when he made a pre-order of nearly 1,500 fully electric Volta Zero vehicles. The 16-ton truck will be used at DB Schenker's European terminals to transport goods from distribution centers to city centers and urban areas. Together, Volta Trucks and DB Schenker will explore the potential applications of the technology to expand the offer.
For the manufacturer, therefore, this is a very important step before reaching the series production of the electric truck scheduled for the beginning of 2023 . Recently, the Volta Zero trucks had completed a tough test session at the Nard & ograve; Technical Center.
The tests will now continue to allow the manufacturer's technicians to collect all the feedback necessary to complete the development of the electric truck and to validate the final version to be mass-produced. For its electric truck, we remind you that Volta Trucks declares a range of 150 to 250 km. It is, therefore, a means expressly suitable for activities; in an urban environment. Essa Al-Saleh , CEO of Volta Trucks, commented:
When we announced the order for more fully electric trucks; conspicuous in Europe with DB Schenker, we have also started a collaboration to achieve together the decarbonisation of urban logistics. The first use of a fully electric Volta Zero in a real test environment is; a significant proof of the depth; of collaboration. & Egrave; extremely exciting to see the Volta Zero vehicles in operation in the streets of Paris, an excellent trailblazer for the delivery of significant volumes of large-scale trucks very soon.
