Volta Trucks has confirmed the details of its first ‘Volta Trucks Hub’ in the UK, serving the battery-electric Volta Zero vehicles that will operate on the streets of London from early 2023. The Hub is the second service and maintenance facility announced by Volta Trucks, after Bonneuil-Sur-Marne in Paris, with further centers in other European cities to be announced in due course.
The Volta Trucks Hub in London is on White Hart Lane in Tottenham, North London, near many of Volta Trucks’ initial UK-based customers and within easy reach of all of east and west London’s significant logistics centers. The facility covers 30,000 square feet, operating eight workshop bays. It will also accommodate a showroom, admin offices, a Volta Trucks Academy training center and a call center that will provide the interface between customers and the company’s technical and commercial experts team.
The property, managed by LaSalle Investment Management, has a photovoltaic panel system on its roof, converting sunlight into energy for the site, and a passive solar wall, optimizing the heating and ventilation of the building. It is also designed with a charging infrastructure to support 50kW fast charging of Volta Zero vehicles while they are being maintained.
The Volta Trucks Hub in London is part of a wider representation strategy that will see a vehicle service offering across all launch locations of Paris, London, Madrid, Milan, the Rhine-Ruhr region of Germany, and the Randstad region of the Netherlands.
