Volta Trucks has revealed details of its first ‘Volta Trucks Hub’ in the UK, which will be used to service and maintain its electric trucks that are due to be launched next year.
The Hub is the second service and maintenance facility announced by Volta Trucks, after Bonneuil-sur-Marne in Paris, with further centres in other European cities to be announced in due course.
The Volta Trucks Hub in London is on White Hart Lane in Tottenham, north London, near many of Volta Trucks initial UK-based customers.
The facility covers 30,000 sq feet, operating eight workshop bays. It will also accommodate a showroom, admin offices, a Volta Trucks academy training centre and call centre that will provide the interface between customers and the company’s team of technical and commercial experts.
Casper Norden, chief fleet solutions officer of Volta Trucks, said: “London and Paris are Volta Trucks’ initial launch markets, and the availability of service and maintenance facilities is key for customer’s trust and confidence in our ability to deliver on our promises, and maintain the uptime of their vehicles.
“The search for the right location with the right environmental credentials has been extensive, but our new Volta Trucks Hub in Tottenham gives us, and our customers, everything needed to introduce our innovative truck into the important UK market and be fully operational from day one.”
The new Volta Trucks Hub in London will have a solar panel system on its roof, converting sunlight into energy for the site, and a passive solar wall, optimising the heating and ventilation of the building.
It is also designed with a charging infrastructure to support 50kW fast charging of Volta Zero vehicles while they are being maintained.
The Volta Trucks Hub in London is part of a wider representation strategy that will see a vehicle service offering across all launch locations of Paris, London, Madrid, Milan, the Rhine-Ruhr region of Germany, and the Randstad region of the Netherlands.
