Volta, Electra's Freezer Truck

Volta is the elegant, sophisticated, classy component. She is the epitome of cool! In the original London production, it was clearly shown in Hitching and Switching that Volta was Electra's preferred race partner, until Pearl came on the scene. In Bochum, she races with Hashamoto until he's disabled mid-race, when she shows her temper. No need to mic up that scream!

Volta's costume is sharp and angular, and generally very shiny. Her hair is generally styled as a fan, as is necessary in refrigeration units. She is one of the most destinctive and unique Starlight Express designs.
