Volcon Stag Manufacturing Update December 2023
AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 22, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Volcon Inc. (NASDAQ: VLCN) (“Volcon” or the “Company”), the first all-electric, off-road powersports company, today provided an important update and clarification regarding the development of its eagerly anticipated Stag model.
While we previously announced challenges related to supply chain issues, we wish to clarify that these challenges are specifically limited to two components. The focus of our attention is on two modules that require minor software and hardware updates. Following completion of the applicable updates, we will enter into a short term testing phase to ensure proper operation. Our team is diligently updating and verifying the software associated with these components to ensure they meet our uncompromising standards for quality and performance.
We are pleased to report that the remaining componentry of the Stag is in order, with componentry either on site or in route for production. Our manufacturer’s facility is primed and ready to commence the manufacturing of the vehicles for commerce as soon as the EPM and APM are functioning optimally.
In line with our commitment to excellence and national service, the initial shipments of the Stag will be dedicated to fulfilling our orders with the U.S. Army Corps. We believe this underscores our product's robustness and suitability for demanding applications. Following the fulfillment of this contract, we will begin distribution to the broader public.
We are confident in our timeline and anticipate initiating shipments in the first quarter of 2024. This schedule is informed by the estimated timeline for testing and validation of the EPM and APM, and reflects our commitment to deliver a product that not only meets but exceeds expectations in the evolving landscape of electric powersports.
Volcon remains steadfast in its mission to revolutionize electric off road mobility, and we appreciate the patience and support of our customers and stakeholders as we approach this exciting milestone.
About Volcon, Inc
Based in the Austin, Texas area, Volcon was founded as the first all-electric power sports company producing high-quality and sustainable electric vehicles for the outdoor community. Volcon electric vehicles are the future of off-roading, not only because of their environmental benefits but also because of their near-silent operation, which allows for a more immersive outdoor experience.
Volcon's vehicle roadmap includes both motorcycles and UTVs. Its first product, the innovative Grunt, began shipping to customers in late 2021 and combines a fat-tired physique with high-torque electric power and a near-silent drive train. The Volcon Grunt EVO, an evolution of the original Grunt with a belt drive, an improved suspension, and seat, began shipping to customers in October 2023. Volcon will also offer the Runt LT, a fun-sized version of the groundbreaking Grunt, better suited for small-statured riders, more compact properties and trails, or as a pit bike at race events, while still delivering robust off-road capabilities. The Brat is Volcon’s first foray into the wildly popular eBike market for both on-road and off-road riding and is currently being delivered to dealers across North America. Volcon is also currently delivering the Volcon Youth Line of dirt bikes for younger riders between the ages of 4 to 11. Volcon debuted the Stag in July 2022 and entered the rapidly expanding UTV market and previously announced that it expects to begin shipping the Stag to customers in the fourth quarter of 2023, which has been delayed as noted above. The Stag empowers the driver to explore the outdoors in a new and unique way that gas-powered UTVs cannot. The Stag offers the same thrilling performance of a standard UTV without the noise (or pollution), allowing the driver to explore the outdoors with all their senses.
