Volta Trucks is a start-up full-electric goods vehicle manufacturer and services company. Volta Trucks has offices in the UK and Sweden and has partnered with a number of industry-leading design and engineering companies to develop the Zero, the first purpose-built full-electric 16-tonne vehicle designed for inner-city freight deliveries.
The Volta Zero is designed to reduce the environmental impact of freight deliveries in city centres where existing pollution is at its worst. Designed and built in the UK, and with an operating pure-electric range of 150-200 kms (95 – 125 miles), the Volta Zero will eliminate an estimated 80kgs of CO2 per 100 driven miles (compared to an equivalent diesel-powered vehicle), or 180,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.
With the first prototype Volta Zero due for launch later in 2020, ForresterPR is working to support Volta Trucks's public relations activities, designing, developing and implementing their global communications and launch strategy and Press Office function. Working alongside sustainability communications experts, ForresterPR has also developed the media outreach strategy and will undertake ongoing global media relations activity to raise awareness for Volta Trucks and the forthcoming Volta Zero in target media and investor audiences.
