Volta Trucks has confirmed that the first Volta Zero vehicle has been completed at the company’s contract manufacturing facility in Steyr, Austria.
The vehicle, the first of a series of second-generation “production verification” prototypes, will form part of a pilot fleet of trucks. These will be loaned to customers for extended periods in late 2022 and early 2023. The start of series production of customer specification vehicles is on track to start in early 2023.
Volta Trucks’ contract manufacturing facility is run by Steyr Automotive, formerly MAN Truck and Bus Austria. Steyr Automotive has reserved a capacity of 14,000 vehicles per year for Volta Trucks from its total available production.
