Promotional Success: The company’s targeted holiday promotions for the Brat and Youth products have resulted in an increase in sales volume. These promotions have not only bolstered sales but also enhanced the brand’s visibility and appeal among a broader range of consumers.
Steady EVO Production and Americas Distribution: In a major operational milestone, the EVO model has achieved steady production and is now being shipped to a wide network of dealers and distributors across the Americas. This marks a pivotal step in Volcon ePowersports’ commitment to providing accessible and innovative off-road electric vehicles.
New Zealand Market Expansion: Expanding its global footprint, Volcon ePowersports has successfully introduced the Grunt EVO and Brat series into New Zealand. This expansion is a testament to the brand’s growing international appeal and its capability to meet diverse market needs.

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.
