Volta Trucks and DB Schenker have together completed the first on-road test phase of the full-electric Volta Zero in Europe.
For the first time, a Design Verification prototype Volta Zero operated on roads and in real distribution environments in Paris.
In 2021, both companies confirmed an intense partnership and pre-order of nearly 1,500 full-electric Volta Zero vehicles – the largest order for medium-duty electrified trucks in Europe to date. The full-electric 16-tonne Volta Zero will be used in DB Schenker’s European terminals to transport goods from distribution hubs to the city centres and urban areas. This is where the vehicle’s innovative design, safety-oriented cab to protect vulnerable road users, and zero-tailpipe emission drivetrain will offer the greatest benefits.
Together, Volta Trucks and DB Schenker will explore the potential uses of the technology to expand the offering. The rollout will begin at 10 locations in five countries.
