Volta Trucks' 'Truck as a Service' now available in Germany and Spain
All-electric commercial vehicle manufacturer Volta Trucks is cementing its Truck as a Service (TaaS) in Europe by opening hubs in Germany and Spain.
The Stockholm-based company has already established TaaS hubs in Paris and London and completed the pilot phase of the Volta Zero truck in France in 2022.
The German Volta Trucks Hub is established in Duisburg, covering a 3,000m² area in the Rhine-Ruhr region, including eight service and maintenance bays and 12 external truck parking spaces. The TaaS hub in Madrid is located in Coslada, strategically positioned close to Spain's primary fresh food distribution area of Mercamadrid and close to the capital's main freight terminal and airport.
Volta Trucks see the new hubs as a critical element in delivering the TaaS solution in Europe, which would also support commercial fleets to electrify their vehicles. The two hubs are equipped with various chargers to power up Volta Zero trucks, LCVs and passenger cars.
Volta Trucks struck a deal with DB Schenker in 2021 to receive a 16-tonne Volta Zero to start transporting goods by 2023. Along with Volta Zero, Volta Trucks plan to introduce four new models by 2025.
