Volcon expands its web of partnerships with a couple more General Motors connections, trying to ensure early adopters of battery-electric powersport vehicles get the support they need. EV charging companies InCharge Energy and Qmerit have been chosen to work with dealers and customers on Level 2 charging systems. Both infrastructure outfits count GM among their commercial partners, marking another Volcon connection to the automaker after making a deal last month with ElectraMeccanica—run by ex-GM exec Susan Docherty—to build the Stag,
InCharge will focus on dealers who need to keep their Stags charged for test drives. We imagine the commercial setups will look much like the eventual home charging solutions Qmerit focuses on. Volcon says the Stag’s 42kWh battery can be charged in four to six hours when plugged into a Level 2 station. The US Department of Transportation assigns Level 2 charging a window of 7kW minimum and 19kW maximum. Considering the Stag’s range of more than 100 miles and the average parking lot UTV test drive, dealers should be able to plug in overnight and be fine for the day.
For buyers, Qmerit will create an online portal with Volcon. There, owners answer a few questions about their homes to get an installation estimate, and can be connected with a local Qmerit-certified installer. For customers who want to avoid even that smidge of home research, Qmerit offers an extra-cost concierge service. At the other end, customers who want to go further into a home energy overhaul can work with Qmerit on adding tech like solar panels and energy storage units.
