Volta looking to build Volta Zero in Spain

Volta Trucks has confirmed that it is seeking to build the Volta Zero in Spain, having formally expressed an interest in the Decarbonisation Hub project within the former Nissan manufacturing facilities in Barcelona.

It is one of several manufacturing options currently being investigated, alongside other potential sites in the UK and Europe.

Chief technology officer at Volta Trucks, Kjell Waloen says: “We have been investigating and evaluating a number of European manufacturing partners and facilities for many months, and are narrowing down the field to a small group of finalists.

“Assembling the Volta Zero in Spain could be of interest, to serve southern European cities for whom decarbonisation of commercial vehicles is becoming an ever-stronger priority.

“We will conclude our investigations shortly but having an option to manufacture the Volta Zero in Barcelona could be interesting for us.”
