Electric Commerce: Volta Trucks’ vehicle for sustainable, urban freight delivery
Play • 36 min
If you have noticed what seems to be even more delivery trucks crowding streets these days, you’re not alone. Ecommerce was already growing at a healthy clip before the pandemic, but the explosion in online shopping ushered in by COVID has left city streets often feeling more traffic-clogged than ever before. Whether idling at the curb or slogging through traffic, those commercial trucks are a major source of the emissions and pollutants that contribute to global warming. Carl-Magnus Norden is one of the people trying to change that. Norden is the founder and executive chairman of Volta Trucks, a Sweden-based electric truck manufacturer and services provider that has developed what it describes as the world’s first purpose-built, full-electric 16 ton commercial truck, designed specifically for freight distribution in city centers.

On this episode, we talk to Carl-Magnus Norden about Volta Trucks’ disruptive model and the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in the electric truck space.
