BRP Breaks Ground on New Can-Am Electric Motorcycle Plant

BRP, Inc. (Bombardier Recreational Products) has broken ground on construction of its first EV manufacturing plant - "marking a major milestone in the company's electric journey."
Destined to be the manufacturing home of the Can-Am brand comeback - as electric two-wheel motorcycles - the new production facility will be in QuerĂ©taro, Mexico, adjacent to the current BRP campus in the city. 

Production of the Can-Am 'Origin' and Can-Am 'Pulse', the company's recently unveiled first two electric motorcycle models, is set to begin in March 2024, with expected deliveries to dealers and consumers during summer 2024.
"We have set out to reclaim our motorcycle heritage with the launch of a line-up of electric two-wheel motorcycles, and we are gearing up to execute on our plan," said Sandy Scullion, President, Powersports Group at BRP.
"We are excited to begin the construction of this new state-of-the-art EV manufacturing facility in Querétaro, Mexico, on the same campus where we are already producing our Sea-Doo personal watercraft and ROTAX engines."
The plant is planned to initially generate 500 new jobs. BRP says it has been designed following the 'LEED' principles with sustainable materials, in line with BRP's Corporate Social Responsibility Plan, to reduce the carbon footprint of its operations. "Furthermore, the company intends to offer an inclusive work environment accessible to everyone, with modifiable workstations that can be adapted to different people."
