Production starts on road-going full-electric Volta Zero vehicles

19 November 2021/Categories: CILT, Industry News, Net-Zero


Electric commercial vehicle manufacturer Volta Trucks has started production of the first road-going ‘Design Verification’ (DV) prototype Volta Zero vehicle at a bespoke facility in Coventry, UK.

 

The DV prototypes are the first full-electric Volta Zero vehicles to be built in the recently unveiled production-ready design. 

 

A total of 25 vehicles will be manufactured and once completed in January, the fleet will embark on a rigorous testing regime. 

 

This will involve Volta Trucks engineers replicating a wide range of customer usage and delivery cycles, as well as taking the Volta Zero to the extremes of cold weather environments in the Arctic, hot weathers in equatorial conditions, and crash testing, all to validate the safety, durability, and reliability of the vehicle.

The results of the comprehensive DV testing programme will be fed into the final prototype stage – ‘Production Verification’ (PV). 

 

The PV prototype vehicles will be built at the company’s new manufacturing plant in Steyr, Austria, in mid-2022. 

 

Many of these production-specification prototypes will be lent to selected customers for extended periods to be tested in their real-world logistics conditions, undertaking millions of delivery kilometres, alongside Volta Trucks’ own engineers.
