To our community members...

  • From all of us at Scout Motors, welcome to the Scout Community! We created this community to provide Scout owners, enthusiasts, and curiosity seekers with a place to engage in discussion, suggestions, stories, and connections. Supportive communities are sometimes hard to find, but we're determined to turn this into one.

    Additionally, Scout Motors wants to hear your feedback and speak directly to the rabid community of owners as unique as America. We'll use the Scout Community to deliver news and information on events and launch updates directly to the group. Although the start of production is anticipated in 2026, many new developments and milestones will occur in the interim. We plan to share them with you on this site and look for your feedback and suggestions.

    How will the Scout Community be run? Think of it this way: this place is your favorite local hangout. You want you enjoy the atmosphere, talk to people who share similar interests, request and receive advice, and generally have an enjoyable time. The Scout Community should be a highlight of your day. We want you to tell stories, share photos, spread your knowledge, and tell us how Scout can deliver great products and experiences. Along the way, Scout Motors will share our journey to production with you.

    Scout is all about respect. We respect our heritage. We respect the land and outdoors. We respect each other. Every person should feel safe, included, and welcomed in the Scout Community. Being kind and courteous to the other forum members is non-negotiable. Friendly debate is welcomed and often produces great outcomes, but we don't want things to get too rowdy. Please take a moment to consider what you post, especially if you think it may insult others. We'll do our best to encourage friendly discourse and to keep the discussions flowing.

    So, welcome to the Scout Community! We encourage you to check back regularly as we plan to engage our members, share teasers, and participate in discussions. The world needs Scouts. Let's get going.

    We are Scout Motors.

Last week, Scout selected Columbia, South Carolina as the home for our first production facility. With this $2B investment in US manufacturing, we are creating 4,000 or more permanent jobs and aim to produce more than 200,000 Scouts annually once at full capacity.

In 1960, the original Scout revolutionized what it means to go places. What it means to see the world from the driver’s seat. What started in 1960 comes full circle today. Scout is once again re-imagining the adventures that an off-road vehicle can deliver – only this time, it’s with an all-electric platform. Today, we are closer than ever to putting an important American icon on the road.

This moment is so important not only for Scout Motors, but also for America. After 3 years of supply chain disruptions and unpredictability in manufacturing, this is the moment American ingenuity is being put back into action. As a benefactor of this moment, Scout is proud to join the push to revitalize manufacturing in America.

To our team, get ready. With this decision, Scout further moves from planning to action. There’s no better team to tackle this endeavor than the one sitting at Scout desks right now.

To our South Carolina partners, thank you. We are honored to call the Palmetto State home. We have a bright future ahead, as the future of Scout starts with SC.

To our loyal Scout community, we invite you to join us on our next adventure. Scout has always been the vehicle that takes your family camping and also shows up on the job site every morning. This is not changing. Scout’s versatility remains intact, and America’s love of driving will be revived.

For now, remember: Scouts go first. Scouts go farther. Scouts always come back to lead the way.
