The People Driving Change

People are at the heart of everything we do

Our team is built of people who are passionate about driving change in order to make the world a better place for others. We can see critical problems our cities face, such as the effects of climate change and air pollution, but rather than shying away from these issues, the people at Volta Trucks see this as an opportunity for us to build a solution. Find out the stories behind our changemakers.
