Volta Trucks has launched its truck as a service hub in Tottenham, north London. 

The official opening was attended by the Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) proponent London mayor, Sadiq Khan, Tottenham MP David Lammy plus policymakers, industry leaders, customers and stakeholders.

The facility is said to be the first of its kind in the UK.

“The Volta Zero is the future of London’s freight – world leading in terms of green technology while also meeting the highest safety standard which can be awarded to an HGV,” Khan said in a statement.

The facility is a central hub for Volta servicing and maintenance.

It also houses administrative offices, a training centre and a customer call centre.

The launch of the London hub complements existing Volta UK operations which include engineering, software, and development in the Midlands and commercial operations in Reading.

The company now has 600 employees in the UK.
