Volcon opens preorders on electric UTV, the Stag

Volcon Inc. has revealed the electric Volcon Stag UTV, with 125 hp and 265 lb.-ft. of torque. Incorporating the optional paddle shifters with overboost mode, the Stag’s electric power plant will produce an output exceeding 140 hp, the company says.

Selectable driving modes will optimize performance and range according to the driver’s 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-kilowatt onboard charger will allow the vehicle to be charged in less than six hours when using Level 2 charging, the company says.

The four-wheel-drive system, activated on-demand, will enhance the Stag’s off-road capability in any terrain by automatically engaging the front wheels whenever the rear wheels lose traction and by managing the power distribution between wheels assuring 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.

Stag Specs include:

  • Horsepower: 125 / above 140 hp*
  • Torque: 265 lb.-ft.
  • Range: above 100 miles
  • Charge time: less than six hours**
  • Motor: 107 kilowatts

  • Payload: 1,550 pounds
  • Bed Volume: 13.4/26.7* cubic-feet Wheel base: 121 inches Vehicle width: 64 inches Towing: 2,000 pounds**
