  • Volta Trucks announces new partnership with Spryker.
  • Spryker helping to automate part of Truck as a Service offering. 
  • Volta Trucks strive to deliver state-of-the-art aftersales care.

Volta Trucks, the leading and disruptive commercial vehicle manufacturer and services provider has announced a new partnership with Spryker, the leading composable commerce platform for advanced business marketplaces. The innovative project will be implemented in partnership with Amazon Web Services. 

Volta Trucks’ ambition is to simplify truck ownership and ease the transition to an all-electric fleet through their innovative Truck as a Service (TaaS) offering. Spryker will help to accelerate its vision by bringing the TaaS model to life digitally and will play a pivotal role in enabling Volta Trucks’ rapid development of essential digital functionality while maintaining flexibility to adapt.

Martin Hofmann, Chief Technology & Information Officer at Volta Trucks, said; “As a new innovative disrupter in the commercial vehicle market, we don’t have the same challenges which a traditional truck manufacturer might have. We have learned from legacy companies how to do things differently. The underlying technology and the way we are able to compose the platform will unconditionally put our customers in the centre and deliver the highest value to their business, as uptime and service of our vehicles is one of our key areas of focus. We chose to partner with Spryker to get ahead of the game and invest in the best possible technology for servicing spare parts for our customers.”

Shiv Tailor, VP of Enterprise Technology at Volta Trucks, added; “The success of our TaaS offering relies on our ability to pivot quickly based on how our customers interact with our trucks. Having the flexibility to iterate quickly is invaluable to us. Spryker’s platform enables us to react and innovate more efficiently.”

In the first phase of the project, Volta Trucks will build a comprehensive parts catalogue, driven by an aggressive timeline that is made possible by Spryker’s out-of-the-box functionalities. In the second phase, Volta Trucks will continue its journey of digital transformation by focusing on the development of an advanced ordering system, introducing additional functionalities while enhancing the overall user experience. 

Boris Lokschin, Co-founder and CEO at Spryker, said; “What Volta Trucks is doing is truly disruptive in the industry and we are proud to support it. Their approach aligns with the global shift towards sustainable mobility, making them a key innovator in the automotive space. By utilising Spryker’s intelligent composable platform, designed specifically for sophisticated transactions, Volta Trucks will be able to create new business models with complex pricing elements quickly, easily, and with a faster return on investment. This collaboration will drive forward innovation that empowers businesses to embrace a more efficient and sustainable future.”


The Volta Zero is the world’s first purpose-built all-electric 16-tonne vehicle designed for urban logistics, reducing the environmental impact of freight deliveries in city centres. The Volta Zero is designed from the ground up with an operating pure-electric range of 150 – 200 kms (95 – 125 miles). 

Safety is also at the heart of Volta Trucks, with the ambition to produce the safest trucks for our cities. The Volta Zero was designed for electric from the outset, which facilitates a step-change in vehicle, driver and pedestrian safety. Thanks to the removal of the internal combustion engine, the operator of a Volta Zero sits in a central driving position, with a much lower seat height than a conventional truck. This combination, plus a glass house-style cab design, gives the driver a wide 220-degrees of visibility, minimising dangerous blind spots.

Volta Trucks is also innovating with its Truck as a Service proposition that has revolutionised the financing and servicing of commercial vehicle fleets. Truck as a Service offers fleet managers a frictionless and hassle-free way to electrify their fleet by offering an all-inclusive service for a single, affordable, monthly fee. It provides access to an all-electric Volta Zero, with its charging infrastructure needs provided by world-leader Siemens, insurance through Europe’s premier insurtech broker, Qover, and servicing, maintenance, and training requirements, maximising the uptime and operational efficiency of the vehicle.
