Electric truck startup Volta Trucks has confirmed the expansion of the brand’s Truck as a Service (TaaS) Hub network in Europe with two new sites confirmed in Duisburg, Germany, and Madrid in Spain. Both locations will be offering comprehensive customer support, training, maintenance, and servicing to the trucks operating in those markets, with the Hubs scheduled to open soon.
The new German Volta Trucks Hub is in Duisburg, to the west of the Rhine-Ruhr region – an area that is striving to become the first climate-neutral industrial region in Europe. The new centre covers 3,000m² and incorporates eight service and maintenance bays and twelve external truck parking spaces along with a showroom, office space, conference rooms and the Volta Trucks Academy – the brand’s specialist training centre which will be used to educate drivers, sales teams, technicians, and fleet operators.
In Spain, the new Volta Trucks Hub, located in the Madrid municipality of Coslada, is positioned to the east of the capital and within easy reach of the city centre. The site is also strategically positioned close to Mercamadrid, Spain’s main fresh food distribution area along with Madrid’s main freight terminal and Madrid–Barajas Airport. The state-of-the-art facility, designed to meet the unique needs of an electric commercial vehicle fleet, covers an area of around 2,500m² and will house eight truck parking spaces, four workshop bays providing maintenance and servicing along with a showroom, administration offices, a customer call centre, and the Volta Trucks Academy.
Like today’s existing Hubs in Paris and London, the Madrid and Duisburg Hubs will be equipped with a range of chargers strategically installed to meet the charging needs of the Volta Zero alongside other LCVs and passenger cars.
Confirming the expansion of the Truck as a Service Hub network, Casper Norden, Chief Fleet Solutions Officer at Volta Trucks, said “The new Hub locations in Duisburg and Madrid are a critical element in delivering the Truck as Service (TaaS) solution. They join sites already established in Bonneuil-sur-Marne, south of Paris, and Tottenham, in London. TaaS supports our customers and partners switching to an electric fleet by providing a range of turnkey components in one package, delivering competitive total cost of ownership and vehicle uptime, de-risking and accelerating their switch to the all-electric Volta Zero.”
