Electric UTV startup Volcon is expanding its facilities in anticipation of growing demand. The company is currently headquartered in North Austin, Texas, and it will soon break ground on a “long-term, state-of-the-art facility” located in Liberty Hill, Texas, Powersports Business reports. The new location will allow the manufacturer to keep up with what it anticipates will be an increasing number of orders as production and deliveries of its Stag side-by-side begin early next year.

Volcon expects to have 18 dealers in its network next year. These locations will sell the Stag UTV, Beast mega-UTV, and Grunt and Runt motorcycles. All models are fully electric and tout class-leading or at least eye-opening on-paper specs. Volcon claims the Stag will have a range of up to 150 miles on a charge and features a water-resistant drivetrain with “high torque motors” for farm and work use. The Stag will be the first of the UTVs that the brand builds at the Liberty Hill plant.

Powersports Business notes that the location not only will house the manufacturing and production lines, but also testing sites for research and development. The site includes a “vast trail network through a dense mix of cedar and oak trees that will soon become the company’s proving grounds. Along with a dry creek bed and running river, the property will serve as the perfect location to continually test and refine Volcon’s two- and four-wheeled vehicles,” according to Powersports Business.
