Volcon Inc. announced it has entered low-volume production and is conducting production validation testing for its flagship product, the Stag UTV. The company’s manufacturer, GLV Ventures, is currently building production validation units of Stag LTD, one of four trim levels being offered. Early production units are being put through the last phase of testing with compliance testing already complete, marking a major milestone for the company.
The beginning of low-volume production marks the company’s achievement of its recent announcement that it would begin production by October of 2023, as well as bringing it one step closer to achieving shipments in the fourth quarter of this year, as promised. The company plans on making initial shipments of approved production units to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as part of its recent collaborative research and development agreement.
“We believe Volcon, unlike several of its peers and early stage competitors in the EV space, is accomplishing what many could not: the successful design, prototyping and production of a new fully-electric entrant into a mature market. We are very excited to be nearing the final weeks of a years-long vehicle program, and I couldn’t be more proud of the team that has brought us to this point,” said Jordan Davis, CEO of Volcon. “Our move into low-volume production marks a historic milestone for us, and we are looking forward to the coming ramp up and scale of our UTV business segment.”
Final testing currently being completed includes additional capture of drive mode data and systems calibration as well as quality analysis of units being produced during production validation. The company has been pleased with early results and continues to chart data to ensure the Stag performs as it was designed to, providing early purchasers with an off-road driving experience like never before. The Stag is showing promising results including 0-to-60 performance which has been recorded at the top of its class.
