This partnership aims to expand Volta Trucks’ Truck as a Service (TaaS) solution by providing specialized equipment finance solutions to its clientele.

This alliance signifies a step forward in making the transition to electric fleets more accessible and economically viable for businesses. As the demand for sustainable solutions grows, such collaborations can accelerate the shift to cleaner transportation methods, pushing the industry toward a greener future.
- SGEF, with a reputation for excellence spanning over 25 years, specializes in equipment and vendor financing across various industries.
- SGEF’s tailored Operating and Finance Lease funding programmes are now available to Volta Trucks’ customers, supporting their agreements in European markets for durations up to eight years.

Essa Al-Saleh, CEO of Volta Trucks, emphasized the significance of this partnership, highlighting the value SGEF brings in terms of financial proficiency. This collaboration not only facilitates the broader adoption of electric fleets but also underscores the potential for lower Total Cost of Ownership, given the residual value of the Volta Zero.
