Volta Trucks has opened its first headquarter building in Paris, as it prepares for the first full-electric Volta Zero commercial vehicles to start operating on the city’s streets by the end of the year.

The ‘Volta Trucks Studio’ in Paris is the first of many in-market headquarter offices where the company will operate its commercial operations and welcome customers during the sales process.

The ‘Volta Trucks Studio’ concept complements the recently announced ‘Volta Trucks Hub’ facility that will deliver its Truck as a Service maintenance and aftersales operations, as well as hosting admin offices, a Volta Trucks Academy training centre and a call centre that will provide the interface between customers and the company’s team of technical and commercial experts, 24/7/365.

Paris is one of two EU launch markets for Volta Trucks, as well as London. Under current legislation, diesel engine vehicles will be banned from operating in Paris from 2024 as all French cities of more than 150,000 residents adopt new Low Emissions Zones.
