Volcon Hires Powersports Industry Veteran and Ex-Nikola Corp Director as Vice President of Engineering
Synchrony Financing Chosen as Volcon's Consumer Finance Option for 2022 and Beyond
AUSTIN, TX / ACCESSWIRE / December 20, 2021 / Volcon Inc. (NASDAQ:VLCN), the first all-electric, off-road powersports company, today announced the appointment of Matthew Jennings as Vice President of Engineering, effective immediately. Jennings will be responsible for providing technical leadership as Volcon continues to develop its two-wheeled offerings and expands into four-wheeled offerings. Jennings will oversee all engineering aspects of current and future Volcon products including design, building, and evaluation and implementation of new technologies, as well as managing portions of research and development initiatives.
Jennings brings extensive engineering experience with him to Volcon, having led the development of battery systems, power electronics, and other components of electrified systems for consumer, defense, and automotive applications. Most recently he was the Director of Electronic Hardware Engineering at Nikola Corporation (NASDAQ: NKLA), where he led a team developing controllers and HMI systems for Nikola vehicles. He holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Clemson University.
"Our goal is to create category-defining products that exceed the expectations of our clients, and the addition of Matthew to our engineering team will help us accomplish that goal," said Christian Okonsky, Volcon's Chief Technical Officer. "As we enter new product categories, Matthew's expertise will bolster our already strong engineering team as we get closer to the launch of our first four-wheeled products next year."
In additional news, as Volcon continues to amass dealers, the company today announced the signing of a key deal with consumer financial services provider Synchrony Financial, to allow for consumer financing of Volcon vehicles. Customers will be able to use Synchrony financing beginning in 2022 at Volcon dealerships. This option will make it easier than ever to own a Volcon.
"With more and more dealerships becoming part of the Volcon family, the addition of Synchrony financing will help create a convenient environment for our customers to take home a Volcon," said Melissa Coffey, Director of International Sales and Development. "Ease-of-use is core to our consumer-experience philosophy, so we've partnered with Synchrony to make a streamlined experience for our clients, so they can spend less time focused on financing and more time enjoying their Volcon in the great outdoors."
