Volta selects Meritor to supply electric drivetrains

Volta Trucks has selected Meritor to supply drivetrain components for the Volta Zero. This will support the delivery of Volta Zero vehicles for customer trials during 2021, and the start of series production in 2022.

The company says its Volta Zero will be the first fully-electric large commercial vehicle in Europe to use an eAxle to drive the rear wheels. Meritor will supply its Blue Horizion 14Xe, containing the electric motor, transmission and rear axle, which is designed to be lighter and more efficient than a conventional electric motor and axle combination.
