Volta Trucks Accelerates Its Market Launch in Sweden

Volta Trucks Market Sweden

Volta Trucks has confirmed its intention to accelerate its market launch for Sweden following overwhelmingly positive interest from customers.

Volta Zero to Hit the Streets of Sweden in Mid-2023

The company will accelerate its launch plans and is set to have vehicles on the road in Sweden in mid-2023, ahead of the original market launch plan to introduce the vehicle later in 2024. This decision has been made due to increased demand and rapidly growing interest among customers operating in Scandinavia.

The 16 and 18-tonne version of the all-electric Volta Zero fits perfectly in the Scandinavian city transport sector, where Medium Duty trucks are the most common vehicles used for goods being transported into larger cities such as Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö.

The all-electric Volta Zero is designed with urban safety in mind, for both the driver as well as the people walking and cycling on the city streets around the vehicle. The driver of a Volta Zero sits in a central seating position in the cabin and in a much lower position compared with a conventional truck. This combination, plus a glass house-style cab design, gives the driver a wide 220-degree direct vision and combines with advanced camera technology to provide maximum visibility around the whole vehicle.

The sliding doors fitted on each side of the cabin, allow the driver to enter or exit on either side of the vehicle, and always onto the pavement. The low cabin allows the driver to simply step in and out of the vehicle, rather than climbing up and down from a traditional truck cab, which is known to create health and safety issues and impact on driver retention.
