Volta Trucks confirms €230 million of Series C funding

News

Volta Trucks has announced the successful and oversubscribed conclusion of its Series C funding round with a €230 million capital raise. The funding round was led by New York-based Luxor Capital, while initial seed investor, Byggmästare Anders J Ahlström of Stockholm, added to its holding in the company as well as bringing further direct and indirect co-investors to the cap table.

Previous Series B investor, Agility, a leading provider of supply chain services, innovation, and investment, also joined the capital raise. The additional investment from these major shareholders demonstrates their confidence in the company’s journey and strategy, and its future success.

B-FLEXION, formerly Waypoint Capital, also became investors in the Volta Trucks journey. B-FLEXION is a private entrepreneurial investment firm. It makes long-term, thematic, direct Principal Investments into businesses in transformative industries, and builds Investment Partnerships across a wide range of areas including Growth & Venture, Buy-Outs, Real Estate, Infrastructure, Public Securities, Credit, Hedge Funds, and other Alternatives. With offices across North America and Europe, it builds on a more than 20-year history of delivering exceptional and lasting value for its clients, while making a positive contribution to society.

This latest capital raise will fund all the company’s engineering and business operations through until after the start of series production of the 16-tonne full-electric Volta Zero at the end of 2022. This includes the completion of a fleet of Design Verification prototypes for engineering development and testing, as well as a fleet of Product Verification vehicles that will be evaluated by customers in London and Paris in mid-2022. It will also fund the continued development of the recently confirmed 7.5- and 12-tonne full-electric Volta Zero derivatives, as well as prepare the company’s contract manufacturing facility in Steyr, Austria, to start production of customer vehicles by the end of the year.

During 2023, the company’s first year of series production, Volta Trucks has production plans for 5,000 vehicles, increasing to 14,000 trucks in 2024 and up to 27,000 vehicles in 2025. By this time, the company will be operational across Europe as well as the US, with a portfolio of four Volta Zero models in production, including 7.5-, 12-, 16- and 18-tonne variants. Supporting these volume expectations are significant customer contracts, including the recent announcement of Europe’s largest order of full-electric trucks from DB Schenker, Europe’s premier land transport company, ordering nearly 1,500 vehicles. This, and other recent pre-orders has taken the Volta Trucks orderbook to over 5,000 vehicles, with an order value of over €1.2 billion.

Confirming the new investment, Essa Al-Saleh, Chief Executive Officer of Volta Trucks, said; “The successful and oversubscribed conclusion of our Series C funding round gives us a positive external validation of our journey. As an innovator and disruptor in commercial vehicles, we are working at industry-leading pace and have significant ambitions. Today’s closing of the Series C funding round, bringing €230 million into the company, gives us the financial runway to be able to deliver on all our goals as we transition from a start-up to a manufacturer of full-electric trucks. The confirmation of our orderbook of over 5,000 vehicles with an orderbook value exceeding €1.2 billion, gives us and our investors, confidence that our pioneering product and service offering is both wanted and needed by our customers.”
