Nordic firm Bring and Posten to trial Volta Zero electric truck
Nordic delivery firm Bring and Posten will be trialling a Volta Zero electric truck to support its inner-city locations.
The Volta Zero will be tested in city locations in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Finland, commencing in Q1-2021. The trials will provide real-world data and driver feedback to engineers in the vehicle development programme.
Announcing the partnership, Per Öhagen, Executive Vice President of E-commerce and Logistics of Bring, said: “Bring wants to be a world leader in making transport climate friendly. By 2025, our goal is that all our vehicles and buildings will be emission neutral. To reach that goal, partnering with companies like Volta Trucks are crucial. To be the first pilot user of a Volta Truck in Scandinavia sends a clear message of our sustainability intent, and we look forward to a good collaboration to develop the emission-free trucks of the future.”
Confirming the partnership between Volta Trucks and Bring, Rob Fowler, Chief Executive Officer of Volta Trucks, said; “With Swedish and Norwegian founders, Volta Trucks was created with strong Nordic roots. Our mission is to create a purpose-built, full-electric large delivery vehicle that will help improve the safety of pedestrians and other road users and improve the air quality for all.
“I am delighted to be exclusively partnering with Bring to test the forthcoming Volta Zero in the important Nordic markets. Bring’s inner-city delivery vehicle requirements, with their extensive network of pick-up and drop-off locations, perfectly complements the design and performance of the Volta Zero with its 200kms range of full-electric, zero-emission operation. I look forward to receiving feedback from Bring’s drivers of the unique driving environment and the vehicle’s performance.”
