Swedish startup Volta Trucks presented its first electric truck – the Volta Zero. This model stands out not only for its rather futuristic design, but also for its construction.
As you can see on photo below, the cabin of the truck is more like the cabin of a large bus. Firstly, the driver sits quite low, and secondly, the glazing area is very large. Due to this, excellent visibility at 220 degrees is provided, which is very important when moving around the city.
As for the technical part, the car is designed to carry up to 16 tons of cargo, and the power reserve is claimed to be 150-200 km. So Volta Zero is a city truck.
Truck is powered by lithium-iron-phosphate batteries, which have a modular design, so that the manufacturer can easily adapt cars to meet customer needs. Volta also focuses on the fact that a number of external body elements are made of environmentally friendly natural linen material and biodegradable resin.
Production of this electric trucks will begin in the UK in 2022, by the end of which Volta intends to produce up to 500 cars. At the same time next year DPD delivery service will start pilot tests of these cars.
