Volcon’s new partners aim to give the electric off-roaders some serious performance.
Begin press release:
Volcon Inc., the first all-electric, off-road powersports company, today announced two strategic partnerships, with smarter energy company, Linear Labs and off-road leader in suspension manufacturing, Camburg Engineering. These partnerships will help Volcon set a powersports-industry benchmark in electric, off-road performance and handling.
“We’re sourcing the best components possible to complement all of our Volcon products,” said Andrew Leisner, CEO of Volcon. “Linear Labs not only gives Volcon a competitive advantage compared to other electric competitors, but also rivals the top combustion models on the market. At the same time, Camburg Engineering gives Volcon models the credibility of developing the highest-quality off-road suspension system, as an established market leader.”
Linear Labs, a Fort Worth, Texas-based company, produces innovative electric motors with groundbreaking HET technology, offering twice the torque of competitive motors – or equal torque in half the size and weight – while helping increase efficiency. The partnership with Linear Labs will bring the highest torque and efficiency to the Volcon line-up with off-road-focused design and durability. Linear Labs motors are in development for existing and future Volcon two- and four-wheel, electric, off-road, powersports vehicles.
Camburg Engineering, based in Huntington Beach, California, is an acclaimed off-road suspension manufacturer and preferred partner of Fox Factory Holding Corp subsidiary Fox Racing Shox. The strategic partnership with Camburg Engineering will encompass the development of Fox Racing Shox-equipped suspension systems for Volcon’s four-wheel, side-by-side vehicles. Volcon will benefit from Camburg’s CAD design, CNC machining, MIG and TIG welding, tube notching and bending capabilities.
Volcon electric vehicles provide fun, family-friendly off-road adventures as well as backcountry sportsman exploration, in addition to practical utility. The company’s first electrified off-road vehicle, the two-wheeled Grunt model, will be delivered to customers beginning in Spring 2021. Four-wheeled Stag and Beast models will follow in late 2021 into 2022.
