Volta Trucks has confirmed that the Volta Zero will make its Spanish debut, continuing its tour of important, sustainability-focused European cities.
The touch-down in Spain follows successful French customer events, with more than 300 individual vehicle demonstrations undertaken over the past five weeks in a Covid-secure environment.
Spanish fleet operators and customers can experience the Volta Zero, the first purpose-built full-electric large commercial vehicle designed for city centre logistics, in Madrid and Barcelona. The Volta Zero will be displayed in conjunction with Volta Trucks customer, Petit Forestier, and charging infrastructure provider, Siemens, in MercaMadrid between Monday 12 April and Thursday 22 April. The vehicle will then transfer to the MercaBarna and Eixample District of Barcelona and be displayed between Monday 26 April and Thursday 6 May 2021.
The presentation of the Volta Zero in Madrid, in partnership with Petit Forestier, Europe’s leading refrigerated truck rental company, follows the December 2020 announcement that Petit Forestier had purchased 1,000 Volta Zero vehicles. This is believed to be Europe’s biggest single purchase of large full-electric commercial vehicles and comes alongside a strategic partnership to develop a refrigerated version of the Volta Zero with Petit Forestier’s own body builder, Lecapitaine.
