Volcon Inc. has introduced its electric Stag UTV, and expects to begin delivering the UTV to dealers for customer purchase in the summer of 2023.
“We envisioned the Volcon Stag to be the most cutting-edge off-road vehicle in its class. Utilizing the latest EV drivetrain technologies, and keeping our focus on performance and user experience have led us to launch what we believe is a UTV that will provide an experience unmatched by any other UTV in its class,” says Jordan Davis, Volcon CEO. “We believe the near-silent drivetrain, class-leading horsepower and torque, and an amazing driver interface are going to revolutionize the powersports industry.”
Offering 125 hp and 265 lb.-ft. of torque (140 hp with optional paddle shifters in overboost mode), the Volcon Stag will feature selectable driving modes to optimize performance and range according to driver needs. ECO mode will maximize range with smooth power delivery, while Sport mode will provide a more aggressive throttle response for quicker acceleration. In Tow mode, the vehicle’s maximum speed will be restricted to build torque progressively for more control while pulling a trailer or other towable accessory. The Stag’s 7.2 kW onboard charger will allow the vehicle to be charged in less than six hours when using Level 2 charging.
The on-demand 4WD system will enhance the Stag’s off-road capability by automatically engaging the front wheels whenever the rear wheels lose traction and by managing the power distribution between wheels, ensuring better stability when cornering. Additionally, Crawl mode will allow the vehicle to move slowly without using the throttle so the driver can manage the speed just by using the brakes.
Other Stag features will include:
- Sharing the user experience will be made easier than ever before by capturing and creating content with two built-in cameras (and additional cameras planned to be available as accessories in the future). The Stag will come with onboard computing hardware to process video clips of the action and a special rail for additional camera mounts. Its unique features make it easy for the driver to interact with friends and community in real-time with access to social media and other sharing platforms using the Volcon App and a Sim Card.
- The main dashboard will display essential information such as speed, battery charge, driving mode, brake regeneration and energy consumption. The large central display will be equipped with camera view, a route planner, off-road gauges, device connectivity, and info about the vehicle status, providing details for rider and passengers.
- The Stag’s cockpit, rear seating and cargo area are designed to accommodate up to four people and gear. For additional cargo space, the rear seats will fold down to expand the cargo space to over 26 cu ft. Payload: 1,550 lbs.; 2,000 lbs. max towing capacity (with towing mode selected).
- The suspension will include fully adjustable shocks, specially designed to ensure great handling. The batteries and motor position contribute to a low center of gravity to significantly improve stability when cornering and offer a better ride experience.
- High-performance BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM3 tires come standard and are designed to enhance electric UTV vehicle performance, resulting in improved range.
A complete line of accessories will be available, including: half and full windshields, hard storage, soft storage, winch mounting, front bumper options, sound systems, and additional lighting.
MSRP on the Stag will be $39,999 USD, Volcon reports.
