From their factory facilities near Austin, Texas, shipments have now commenced to carry out delivery of Grunt models throughout the United States and Latin America, to fulfill the pre-order queue.
“The entire team has worked exceptionally hard to bring the Grunt to market, spending nights and weekends devoted to delivering on a very demanding manufacturing timeline. I want to thank the entire team, from our engineers and technicians to our office staff, designers, and factory teams, for all their hard work. I’m humbled to be a part of this outstanding team and the work they’re doing,” said Jordan Davis, Chief Executive Officer of Volcon. “There’s no doubt in our minds that our customers are going to love the Grunt when it arrives at their doorstep. We look forward to being a part of their journey from petrol power to electrification as they enjoy their bikes for years to come.”
