DB Schenker pre-orders nearly 1,500 EVs from Volta Trucks
Nearly 1,500: That's the number of all-electric trucks that the big European logistics company DB Schenker has pre-ordered from Volta Trucks.
Why it matters: It's the largest pre-order for electric trucks in Europe to date, the companies said.
- However, a "pre-order" is not a synonym for the purchase of Volta's trucks, which have not yet moved into commercial production.
- "DB Schenker will use the first prototype of Volta Zero Trucks in real distribution conditions in spring and summer of 2022," the companies said in a release.
