BOLLINGER B1: THE WORLD'S MOST CAPABLE SPORT UTILITY TRUCK

OUR PRODUCTION-INTENT DESIGN

We raised the beltline or “shoulder” of the truck to allow for more packaging space for the components under the frunk, but also to raise the overall occupant head clearance.


This visually impacted the exterior design in a positive way, by keeping a majority of the visual weight below that beltline (the chamfer that runs the length of the body side, just below the hood), it creates a more stable and sturdy appearance.


The major change that drove our exterior design adjustments came from our breakthrough in thermal management. We were able to reduce our overall radiator size and utilize one slim cooling unit behind the bumper where it would receive better airflow.

The dual, top mounted radiators were no longer required, which allowed us to widen the frunk significantly. We moved the headlights outboard, creating a similar mounting strategy as the rear lights, allowing further symmetry in our design.

The B-pillar (behind the front seats) was moved forward for better ingress and egress for the rear occupant.

It then made the sliding glass window cassettes less effective, so we opted to go with the time-proven technology of manual crank windows. This system is much lighter and just as robust as our sliding glass design.

The windshield, side glass, and rear glass all grew taller to accommodate for more head clearance and to help with overall exterior proportions.

With the taller beltline, it was necessary to vertically grow the “greenhouse” (as it’s called in automotive design) to provide better visibility, driver experience and aesthetics.

If you could take everything you love about a classic truck and combine it with the most refined essentials of a modern truck, redesign it with the highest quality materials and components available, oh and make it an electric vehicle – you’d have the basics for the Bollinger B1 electric sport utility truck. There is nothing on the planet like it. Every touch point, every seam and every surface has been thought out for the ultimate utilitarian purpose. This is our baby. The one we’ve put every ounce of research and development and time into. The one we scrapped and started over for getting too complicated. The one we love the most. This is the all-electric truck that didn’t exist until our truck-obsessed engineers built it from scratch. In a class of its own, the Bollinger B1 might well be the last truck you’ll ever need to buy.
