Volcon Strikes Exclusive Distribution Deal With Indi Imports in New Zealand

The ecological benefits of Volcon’s electric vehicles, align with New Zealand’s environmental stewardship.

Volcon Inc. announced it has expanded its global distribution network into New Zealand. The company penned an exclusive distribution agreement with Powersports Import and Distribution Ltd., trading as Indi Imports. Indi Imports joins a family of established specialist powersports and automotive businesses in Queenstown Lakes District, Wānaka, New Zealand. 

Tom Wood Group, a notable entity with a history of successful expansion in the U.S. automobile and powersports landscape, has nine powersports locations, with seven in the U.S. and two in New Zealand. Jeff Wood privately owns the New Zealand businesses as well as the Tom Wood Group, which is based in Indianapolis, Indiana. Tom Wood Group management helped facilitate the agreement between Volcon and Indi Imports, marking a significant milestone in Volcon’s international market efforts and reach. 

The ecological benefits of Volcon’s electric vehicles, devoid of oil or gas externalities, position them as a superior option for the agriculture sector, aligning with New Zealand’s environmental stewardship, where automotive electric vehicle (EV) registration has doubled from 2021 to 2022. Cristian Liani, international sales manager for Volcon ePowersports, remarked, “This collaboration with Indi Imports overseen by the reputable Tom Wood Group, is another step forward in Volcon’s global journey. The environmentally conscious and agriculture communities in New Zealand present a ripe market for our electric vehicles. Following our successful expansion in Latin American territories, stepping into New Zealand is a thrilling venture and paves the way for more international alliances.”

Daniel Irwin, general manager for Indi Imports, shared his excitement with the forming of the Volcon agreement. “We are looking forward to the opportunity of being long-term collaborators within the Volcon brand global rollout while gaining a genuine, first-mover advantage across outdoor EV vehicles for off-road adventures in both business and pleasure. Our initial seeding order encompassing the Volcon Stag UTV and two-wheel vehicles, the Grunt EVO off-road motorcycle and the Brat e-bike will enable us to bring a global leading product to the market while allowing us to diversify our commercial model from a retail sales, parts, accessories and service business to national importing and distribution of alternative and independent ePowersport options.”

The announcement is a continuation of Volcon’s strategic global expansion, following a distribution agreement in Brazil worth up to $12 million dollars that propelled Volcon’s presence into eight countries in South America. The venture into New Zealand not only diversifies Volcon’s global market penetration but also signifies a step towards fulfilling its mission of revolutionizing off-road mobility with eco-sustainable solutions.
