Volta Trucks has confirmed that the first Volta Zero vehicles will be manufactured in Steyr, Austria, by Steyr Automotive, formerly MAN Truck and Bus Austria.
The announcement follows a wide-ranging competitive tender process with potential suppliers throughout Europe.
Steyr Automotive were appointed based on its “extensive experience of commercial vehicle manufacturing, existing manufacturing infrastructure and consequent speed to market”, Volta Trucks said.
Series production will start in late 2022, following customer trials of pilot fleet vehicles that will commence mid-next year.
Volta Trucks expects more than 27,000 units of the Volta Zero to be built in Steyr per year by 2025.
