Volta Trucks has received European Whole Vehicle Type Approval for its 16-tonne all-electric Volta Zero. The certification now allows Volta to produce and sell the all-electric Volta Zero in volume.
To achieve the required accreditation, Volta Trucks worked with the experts at ATEEL UK Ltd and ATEEL S.à r.l., the international Technical Service, and SNCH, The Société Nationale de Certification et d’Homologation, the Luxembourg approval authority who oversee approval for international UNECE and European regulations.
Customer’s own Series production Volta Zeros are due to start rolling off the line at the company’s manufacturing facility in Steyr, Austria, early Q2 2023.
Essa Al-Saleh, Chief Executive Officer of Volta Trucks, says; “Receiving the European Community Whole Vehicle Type Approval is a huge milestone for Volta Trucks, and our mission to make city centre streets safer and more sustainable for all. We’ve developed a completely new vehicle from the ground up, and it’s a testament to our Engineering and Developments teams that the Volta Zero has passed these stringent and demanding tests so quickly. We are now all set for the start of Series Production at our manufacturing facility in Steyr, Austria, to put trucks into the hands of our customers, and start the work of delivering on our mission.”
