Volcon is shifting assembly of its Grunt EVO to AZ as part of a partnership with ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp. Based in Mesa, Arizona, ElectraMeccanica is a designer and manufacturer of electric vehicles and affiliated Volcon’s manufacturing partner, GLV. The group selected ElectraMeccanica’s state-of-the-art, recently commissioned, 235,000-square-foot HQ facility for final assembly of Volcon’s next generation Grunt EVO and Runt fat-tired electric motorcycles.
“Our move is a significant milestone for us as we strive to bring manufacturing back to the United States, speed up the launch of our vehicles, and attempt to establish a first-mover advantage in the electrification of the off-road powersports industry," said Volcon ePowersports CEO Jordan Davis. “Additionally, we’re continuing to speed up our development and go-to-market process by adding this arrangement to our many key component suppliers such as BFGoodrich, Gates and several other key component providers.”
“Volcon’s an absolutely terrific fit for our Mesa facility, which has one of the best lean-assembly teams in the business,” adds Susan E. Docherty, ElectraMeccanica CEO. “When we commissioned our Mesa HQ in December 2022, we said one of our primary goals was not only to assemble our own unique designs there, but also to help fellow native-EV manufacturers achieve their own go-to-market goals by leveraging our expertise and resources. I’m very proud to be able to contribute to Volcon’s success, and to use our plant to help grow the EV market overall.”
