Volta Trucks has confirmed the location of its first ‘Volta Trucks Hub’ in Tottenham, north London.
The service and maintenance facility located on White Hart Lane will be the second such centre in the Volta Trucks network after Bonneuil-sur-Marne in Paris. Additional centres in other European cities to set to be announced in due course.
The Tottenham facility will operate eight workshop bays at the 30,000 sq ft premises, where there will also be a showroom, offices and a Volta Trucks Academy training centre. Naturally, for an electric vehicle manfucturer, the site will have photovoltaic panels on its roof as well as a passive solar wall to optimise the heating and ventilation of the building and on site charging will allow 50kW fast charging of the Volta Zero.
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.”
