The first trial, planned for Q1 2023 in Paris, will be with the H&M Group. According to the two companies, the fully integrated, zero tailpipe emission delivery service from warehouse to end customer uses a combination of electric trucks and electric two-wheelers.
The Volta Zero will act as a mobile micro hub, or mini warehouse. Cake’s electric motorcycles will be loaded into the Volta Zero from the distribution center at the start of the working day and deployed into the city center. From there, the companies say Cake’s electric motorcycles will deliver the last mile of parcels to customers in the fastest and most sustainable way, without impacting the traffic, or struggling with parking. The Volta Zero is free to redeploy to other locations throughout the day or to provide quick-replacement batteries for the Cake motorcycles if necessary.
