Electric commercial vehicle manufacturer Volta Trucks has confirmed it will produce over 300 purpose-built fully electric medium-duty urban delivery trucks in 2023.
The company estimates that these trucks will bring in around €85m (US$92.3m) associated revenue. Series production vehicles are due to start rolling off the production line at the company’s contract manufacturing facility in Steyr, Austria, in early 2023, with the plant ready to meet customer demand for the purpose-built electric urban delivery truck.
Essa Al-Saleh, Volta Trucks’ CEO, said, “Volta Trucks has made important progress in the first few weeks of 2023, confirming more than 300 customer truck orders for the first vehicles off our production line in Austria. This covers a meaningful portion of our 2023 production targets before customers have pilot tested the vehicles. This is a major achievement and demonstrates the compelling features of the Volta Zero and the trust that our customers have in our ability to deliver. Volta Trucks is poised for a successful first year of sales and production. We are confident and focused on delivering on our strategic ambitions and purpose to decarbonize and improve the safety of city centers.”
