Hercules Electric Vehicles was founded in Detroit on December 26, 2018 by James Breyer. James founded Hercules with a vision to bring luxury eco-utility products to market, starting with an electric pick-up truck, and followed by other exciting electric mobility products. He wanted to do this in the most efficient way possible, ensuring the company stays true to it’s principles of environmental, social, and financial responsibility. He was joined in 2019 by experienced automotive leaders, Greg Weber and Julie Tolley, as co-founders in the mission to bring Hercules EVs to reality.
Our approach is different, we intend to use existing industrial capacity wherever possible, paired with a modular design and assembly approach. This allows Hercules to bring eco-utility vehicles to market faster and with higher levels of personalization and craftsmanship. It also means we don’t have to add redundant manufacturing capacity where it isn’t needed.
