Texas-built electric motorcycle company expands dealerships across the United States

Volcon appears to be shipping its first model of electric motorcycle as fast as it can produce them at its factory in Texas. But soon, the company will have a dealer network that should make it easier for future riders to test and ride their own Grunt electric motorcycle.

The company’s new nationwide dealer network has just been announced to facilitate order fulfillment for popular off-road electric two-wheelers.

While the dealership is designed to cover the continental United States, Volcon also plans to establish an international dealer network. Projects are already underway in several South American countries.

As explained by Melissa Coffey, Director of International Sales and Business Development at Volcon ePowersports:

“Since we first introduced the Grunt to the public in 2020, dealer inquiries have poured in from around the world, receiving over 200 inquiries in the US alone and over 50 internationally. We have already started preliminary discussions with established powersports dealers and it has been very gratifying to hear that they are already familiar with the Volcon brand and have been following our progress from the start. It is the confirmation that we are in the right place at the right time with the right products!

All of this is good news for Volcon’s investors, who helped bolster the company’s shares after it went public on Nasdaq last month under the ticker symbol VLCN.

In early October, the company’s IPO valued the shares at $ 5.50, with the price climbing to $ 9.01 at the start of trading. Prices fluctuated throughout the first day, eventually closing with VLCN at $ 10.86, marking a 97% increase.

The stock has climbed even higher in the month since, closing at $ 15.09 yesterday.

Volcon hopes to capitalize on its success with a series of future products. In addition to its Grunt off-road electric motorcycle, a smaller model known as the Runt will be launched for teens and little riders.

On the other end of the spectrum, Volcon has two four-wheel electric UTVs in the works.

A prototype of its Stag UTV is apparently nearing completion, according to frequent updates from the company.

To further accelerate the development of the Stag ahead of next year’s debut, Volcon even signed with Martin Technologies, a design firm and automotive industry expert who works with brands like Jeep, Dodge, Ford, GM, Nissan and Toyota.

The design company has over 30 years of automotive manufacturing experience and is now developing the Stag alongside Volcon.

As Harold Martin, President and CEO of Martin Technologies, explained:

“This is our chance to work with Volcon, the only all-electric all-terrain brand to create the largest UTV ever built. We believe the deer market is the perfect place to prove the ruggedness and reliability of our EV technologies and our smart wiring systems, and we look forward to working with Volcon to help them build what we believe will be the best all-terrain vehicle in its class.
