Recently, the first Volta trucks from Steyr production were successfully put into operation. Steyr Automotive, as a manufacturing partner, has thus completed an important stage together with its customer.
The vehicles of this second prototype generation will be loaned out to customers for the first time for a longer period at the end of 2022 and beginning of 2023. This will allow fleet operators to test in practice how the fully electric medium-duty commercial vehicle can be integrated into their everyday operations. The start of series production according to customer specifications is planned for the beginning of 2023.
Watching the first full-electric Volta Zero drive off the production line in Steyr, co-Founder and Chief Manufacturing and Logistics Officer of Volta Trucks, Kjell Walöen, said; “This first vehicle rolling off the line at our manufacturing plant in Steyr is the latest significant milestone on the Volta Trucks journey towards the start of production of customers’ vehicles. To have achieved this significant landmark in just 12 months is a testament to the pace that we are working at to deliver the safest and most sustainable trucks to urban streets, and the excellent collaboration we have with our partners at Steyr Automotive. Their team has used generations of premium truck-building experience to deliver the first Volta Zero off the production line on time, and to the highest quality standards.”
