Little-by-little all-electric vehicles are emerging in all or almost every imaginable segment. On Thursday in a Livestream, a Michigan-based electric vehicle startup Bollinger Motors has presented two prototypes almost ready for mass production. These are the Bollinger B1 and B2, the reinterpretation of the SUV and the electric-powered pickup.
Both, the B1 four-door electric SUV and B2 electric pickup truck, look just a bit more polished than the renderings and pictures that have come before this. Both the vehicles have a simple and rugged design which makes it suitable for the people who actually get things done or even go off-roading with their trucks.
The entire body of the Bollinger B1 and B2 will be made of aluminum to keep the weight as low as possible. Both models share the electric propulsion system consisting of two electric motors capable of producing a combined power of 614 horsepower and a torque of 906 Newton meters available from scratch.
The electrical system has a huge battery with 120 kWh capacity that should last for about 200 miles. As a whole, the model is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 60 mph) in below 5 seconds – about 4.5 seconds to be exact. The vehicles can reach the top speed of 100 mph (160 km/h).
According to the own brand, the Bollinger B1 and B2 has leading off-road capabilities in its class. The model will offer a generous ground clearance of 15-inch (381 mm) ground clearance and 10-inch (254 mm) wheel travel. Both weigh just under 2.3 tonnes (2300 kg). It will have a payload capacity that can extend up to 5201 lb (around 2360 kg) and a towing capacity that can reach 7500 lb (3400 kg), so it does a good job for any work you plan to deal with.
What’s more? Some other features include 2 Speed Hi/Lo Range Gearbox, 4-Wheel Anti-Lock Inboard Discs, Geared Axle Hubs, 11.75-inch Vented Brakes and more.
The project is still underway, and the brand noted that by the end of 2019, more details of the B1 and B2 would be announced including prices, delivery times, and the start of marketing.
