Electric motorcycle, side-by-side OEM expanding to support growth

The first all-electric, off-road powersports company announced the expansion of its footprint in Texas, according to a press release.

Here’s the scoop from Round Rock:

Volcon Inc. (NASDAQ: VLCN), the first all-electric, off-road powersports company, today announced the expansion of their footprint in North Austin, Texas. What started as one engineering building in early 2021 has quickly become a three-building campus as the company awaits breaking ground on its long-term, state-of-the-art facility in Liberty Hill, Texas.

“It has been incredible to witness the growth of this company over the last few months, both in headcount, factory footprint and dealership growth. What was once a small team in a single production facility has blossomed into a multi-building campus here in Austin with over 50 employees,” said Jordan Davis, Volcon’s CEO. “Our current layout should serve our needs nicely until we can celebrate the grand opening of our future manufacturing facility in Liberty Hill.”

Volcon made impressive strides with its dealer network launch during the 2021 Powersports Business Accelerate Conference in Atlanta.

As 2021 nears a close, the Volcon team continues to build its category-defining motorcycle the Grunt in anticipation of completing direct-to-consumer shipments by Q1 of 2022.

As the business transitions into a dealer-driven model, which now totals 18 within two weeks of launch, the planned expansion into the Liberty Hill location will be necessary to accommodate the influx of demand for the Volcon Stag, the company’s planned first all-electric side-by-side and for future models to follow.

The current campus layout includes:

Building 1: Production, Assembly, and Service

Building 2: Marketing, Sales, and Engineering

Building 3: Warehousing and Accounting

Building 4: Liberty Hill (Future Expansion)

Volcon’s Liberty Hill factory location will be situated on 70 acres in Northwest Austin, consisting of a vast trail network through a dense mix of cedar and oak trees that will soon become the company’s proving grounds. Along with a dry creek bed and running river, the property will serve as the perfect location to continually test and refine Volcon’s two and four-wheeled vehicles, while rapidly incorporating production feedback.
