Volta Zero
by Astheimer Design

Winner: Product design of the year 2021. Volta Zero is the world's first purpose-built full-electric 16-tonne commercial vehicle created specifically for city centre freight distribution.

The Volta Zero is designed to be the safest commercial vehicle, protecting vulnerable road users, and to be a significant contributor to the future vision of zero-emission cities all over the world.

Judges comments: "This project is a good shift in thinking. It’s shown within the context of London where vans and cars are increasingly problematic, and it has such potential for application in cities."
