“We continue to introduce new, innovative products and technologies that create opportunities for growth here and around the world. Today, we are excited to celebrate the revolutionary 3-wheel, Polaris Slingshot into full production here in Spirit Lake,” says Bennett Morgan, President and Chief Operating Officer of Polaris.
While it may strain some people’s definition of “motorcycles”, the Slingshot will be produced alongside Polaris’ two-wheeled brands, Victory and Indian. Polaris is adding 300 jobs to help meet the increase in production for both two- and now three-wheeled vehicles.
“Polaris is committed to both understanding the desired riding experience of our customers and then working to exceed those expectations,” said Brian Hines, Director of Operations at the Spirit Lake plant. “We could not be happier to produce such a high-quality vehicle at our Spirit Lake manufacturing facility.”
