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 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.
