Volcon Stag Electric UTV Can Reach 80 MPH With Over 100 Miles Of Range

The Volcon Stag electric UTV is the Texas-based company’s newest addition to their off-road lineup

Nearly two years after the company’s founding, the Volcon Stag electric UTV was first hinted at, but the majority of the company’s resources went into creating their electric motorbike, Grunt. Volcon stated that the Stag will go into production in 2022 after the Grunt started shipping last year. With delivery of the new Stag scheduled for the summer of 2023, it appears that Volcon is ready to unleash the beast.

The four-seat Volcon Stag electric UTV combines great power and minimal noise, taking full advantage of the best features of electric cars and powertrains. It can accelerate from 0 to the claimed 80 mph (130 km/h) top speed thanks to its 265 lb-ft (360 Nm) of instant, zero-rpm electric torque and up to 140 horsepower. 140 HP is available in short bursts, while 125 HP is the “standard” peak. The Stag can also tow up to 2,000 pounds.

According to Volcon, “the electric motor provides a flat torque curve delivering instant power the moment you touch the pedal, resulting in unparalleled off-road acceleration.” Its 42 kWh battery pack supplies the powertrain, enabling it to go 100 miles (160 km) in between each charge by using the Stag’s ECO mode. A Sport mode allows for “more aggressive throttle response for better acceleration.” An inbuilt Level 2 charger allows the battery to be fully recharged in seven hours with the on-board 7.2 kW AC charger.

The software-driven 4WD system of the Volcon Stag electric UTV engages the front wheels anytime the rear wheels lose grip. It also utilizes active torque-vectoring to keep things moving, which improves the UTV’s off-road performance. In addition, the Stag’s “Crawl” mode can enable it to navigate difficult terrain by just applying the brake pedal. There’s also a “Tow” mode that’s featured with a payload of 1,550 lb (703 kg) and a towing capacity of 2,000 lb (907 kg). The back seats can be folded down for up to 26.7 cubic feet (756 liters) of additional storage space..

The driver-focused cockpit of the Stag is built around two cutting-edge displays that provide Human Machine Integration (HMI). The ergonomics of the seat and the tilt-adjustable steering wheel also “allow for an ideal driving position”, as stated by Volcon.

The Volcon Stag electric UTV will be ready for next year as the company is rapidly growing its dealership network. Those interested in the all-electric off-roader can reserve the Stag for $100 on the Volcon website. Pricing starts at $39,999 with a series production set for later this year.
