Bollinger Motors has recently put out a montage of short video clips of their team putting together their B1 electric SUV and B2 electric pickup. At the end of the video was a reveal date: September 26th.
You can watch the short video for yourself below.
If you have ever taken a look at our list of 5 Upcoming Electric Trucks, you would have noticed that the Michigan-based startup was on the list.
Both the B1 and B2 carry a very simple and rugged aesthetic that could be compared to old Jeeps or the Land Rover Defender. Neither of the Bollinger models will look out of place going off-road.
Both the B1 and B2 will feature the exact same power specifications with the only difference being the body that sits on top of the frame. Both will feature a huge 120 kWh battery pack, but Bollinger is only expecting a range of 200 miles from the models. This relatively short range can be due to multitude of reasons, but the very un-aerodynamic and boxy design definitely does not help.
Both will have 614 hp with 668 lb-ft of torque with a top speed of 100 mph and a 0-60 time of around 4.5 seconds. The towing capacity for both models is 7,500 lbs, with the B1 electric SUV having a slightly higher payload capacity of 5,201 lbs versus the B2’s 5,001 lbs.
In the true spirit of being rugged vehicles, the ground clearance is a generous 15-inches. Additionally large parts of the vehicles are removable, including the windows, doors, and roof panels, allowing you to have as much open air as you desire.
As the video states, the team has been hard at work for almost five months hand building the two prototypes that will be seen on September 26th. We hope to see some pricing alongside the reveal. Given the small size of the company and presumably low volume, we do not expect either the B1 or B2 to be a cheap vehicle.
