All-electric: Can-Am’s first electric vehicle production facility opens

In August of this year, we covered two new electric machines poised to break into the EV industry.

They were Can-Am’s first electric babies – and now we hear that Can-Am Pulse and Can-Am Origin will soon see their own manufacturing plant completed, generating around 500 jobs in the area.

The parties involved are breaking ground in commemoration of the start of construction of the new electric vehicle plant for Can-Am’s Origin and Pulse. Media taken from BRP press release.

The inauguration ceremony, according to Can-Am press releasewas carried out yesterday in the cradle of Mexican independence – Querétaro, Mexico – where we learn that the plant will also be adjacent to the current BRP campus.

“We have set out to reclaim our motorcycle heritage with the launch of a range of 2-wheel electric motorcycles, and we are preparing to execute our plan,” enthuses Sandy Scullion, President, Motorsports Group at BRP.

“We are excited to begin construction of this new, state-of-the-art electric vehicle manufacturing plant in Querétaro, Mexico, on the same campus where we already produce our Sea-Doo watercraft and ROTAX engines.”

“We look forward to producing the first Can-Am electric motorcycles for a new generation of enthusiasts.”

BRP’s corporate social responsibility plan also comes into play here: With the new plant sanctioned by LEED principles, BRP will use sustainable materials to “reduce the carbon footprint of its operations.”

Expect the Can-Am Pulse and Can-Am Origin fleets to begin the production phase in March 2024, with the bikes themselves complete and on their way to customers by summer 2024.
