Boosting deployment of Volta Trucks
The European Investment Bank (EIB) is engaging with Volta Trucks for EUR 40 million venture debt financing. The funding would support the roll out of the company’s Truck as a Service infrastructure over 2023-2026. The aim of the funding support is to contribute to the electrification of the road transport sector, by facilitating the deployment of electric trucks.
The Volta Zero is the world’s first purpose-built all-electric 16 t vehicle designed for urban logistics, reducing the environmental impact of freight deliveries in city centres.
The vehicle is designed from the ground up with an operating pure-electric range of 150 - 200 km. Volta Trucks was founded in Sweden in 2019. (ben)
