Bollinger Motors is ready to introduce the B1 and B2 boxy off-road electric vehicles September 26th. The B2 electric pickup truck is the bigger version of the B1. Both are four passenger vehicles with extensive cargo space.
Bollinger posted a teaser video on their official YouTube channel to announce that the prototypes are ready to leave the shop and hit the trails. The concept is a cross of a Jeep Wrangler with a Land Rover Defender, plus an industrial vibe. The design has several unique features including a pass-through that stretches from the front to the trunk (dubbed a frunk), six individual removable roof panels, and tons of storage.
Bollinger Motors is a New York based company in the business of electric vehicles. Not only EVs, but Bollinger is entering the off-road electric motor category. Bollinger was racing to be the first automaker to get the EV off-roader, however, Rivian beat them to the punch. Rivian debuted two different concept cars at last years Los Angeles Auto Show.
The powertrain is built around a 120-kilowatt-hour, lithium-ion battery pack that drives a pair of electric motors into motion. The electric motors are positioned over the axles. They transfer power to the wheels by portal axles, Unimog-style, increasing ground clearance. Bollinger even integrated 110-Volt outlets into the trunk to run power tools out on the trails. It has 614 horsepower with 688 lb-ft of torque. The off-road vehicles have a towing capacity of 7,500 pounds and 5,000 pound payload. Bollinger is currently reporting a 200 mile driving range per charge. The bed length is 72 inches and expandable to 96 inches with 14 cubic feet storage area. The B1 and B2 have a top speed of 100 mph, and can go 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds.
Bollinger runs on the motto of “engineering the best trucks on the planet earth.” The company hasn’t released any information regarding the delivery timeline. Hopefully, as major auto shows start approach, Bollinger will release more teasers and new information.
