Bollinger Motors may have pushed back its production date to next year, but that hasn’t stopped them from expanding their offering. At a recent unveiling, Bollinger showed off four-door versions of both of its electric trucks, the B1 and the B2.
Both new versions have the same specs as the two-door versions, which makes sense as they share the same powertrain. That powertrain is all electric and all wheel drive. The 614 horsepower is accompanied by 668 ft-lb of torque, granting the trucks 7,500 pounds of towing capacity and have a 5,201 pound payload capacity. With a 120 kWh battery pack, they have a 200 mile range, or the equivalent of 70.2 miles per gallon electric. They can hit 0 to 60 in 4.5 seconds and have a top speed of 100 miles per hour.
There are a few more similarities between the siblings. They both have a resemblance to a Jeep Wrangler and both are dressed up completely in black. The standard ground clearance of 15 inches combined with the powertrain means that these trucks are suitable off roaders. Because these are electric, the front is used as storage, and in the case of the B1 and B2 that means 14 cubic feet in the frunk. The differences start in the tail end of the trucks. The B1 closes off as an SUV, but the B2 adds in a bed that’s 49 inches wide and 69 inches long. Open up the cab wall and remove the rear seats, and the bed gains another 45 inches. On top of that, you can use the pass through feature for longer materials. That’s enough room for 40 2X4s.
Bollinger hasn’t announced pricing for either yet, but they are taking reservations. Production is expected to start in the second half of 2020. Bollinger is working with a network of dealers in the US to make the truck available and they have plans to export to markets as well.
