Electrive writes that a DB Schenker spokesperson said that "we pre-ordered 1,500 Volta Zero Trucks two years ago because we were convinced of the vehicle concept."

"In 2023 we conducted several pilot tests across Europe. The outcome of that was very promising and we see the truck concept still as a potential game-changer for the last-mile delivery", the company added.

This is why they still want to push through with the order, saving Volta Trucks from bankruptcy.

Luxor Capital is the new owner of Volta Trucks, who recently announced that it will make a comeback in a few European markets and plans to make its first deliveries to a few German customers by the end of this year. Then, it will start making deliveries in France, the UK and Scandinavia.

Following the company's announcement in April that it will make a comeback, it was revealed that from the initial 600 employees, only 150 are now still with the company.

Essa Al-Saleh, CEO of the new Volta Trucks Commercial Vehicles Ltd, said that "we're looking to confirm orders with existing customers, reassemble the supply chain, complete a crucial fundraising round, and ensure series vehicles are ready for delivery. Right now, we are in the midst of discussions with all our suppliers and partners to enable these objectives. We have learned a lot from our challenging journey and are emerging stronger and more focused than ever."
