Volta Trucks announces that it will bring its electric trucks to Spain

Volta Trucks’ urban and last-mile electric trucks are already on their way to Spain. Or they soon will be, because the Swedish electric mobility company has focus on Madrid to fill the city with these models from 2023. On the horizon, almost a year to conclude commercial agreements that materialize in the purchase of some of the fleet models that the company plans to deploy in a few months . Also the objective of extending its fleet to the rest of the major cities of the country, according to Carl-Magnus Norden, founder of Volta Trucks, for hypertextual.

In all, 5,000 electric trucks per All of Europe They will start mass production at the end of this year. All fueled by a funding round, freshly minted and announced a month ago, by Volta Trucks. 230 million euros from Luxor Capital, a fund based in New York, and with the collaboration of Byggmästare Anders J Ahlström, in Stockholm. An operation that culminates a previous one, in 2021, of 37 million euros.

How many Volta Trucks trucks will arrive in the capital? It’s not quite clear. On the table are months of negotiations with companies that are willing to do so. Among its targets: “Packaging and logistics companies, food and beverage companies, and large household items such as furniture and appliances.” Companies for which they will offer the financing of vehicles and the installation of charging stations.

Likewise, they are not the first to operate in the country. Aquaservice, a water company for businesses and individuals, already operates with a 100% electric model in Valencia for last mile deliveries. Volta Trucks’ idea would be to extend the range to all types of businesses.

Volta Trucks only for city transport, for the moment

Freight transport is a hot topic right now. Volta Trucks couldn’t have chosen better Hourly to travel to Spain. It is, indeed, one of the countries most affected by the rise in fuel prices and the expenses that this entails – practically at a loss – for the goods sector.
