THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED

BEHIND THE SCENES AT BOLLINGER MOTORS

WINTER TESTING IN THE U.P.

TESTING. NEVER. STOPS. GOOD THING WE’RE OBSESSED WITH IT

Our team spends days, sometimes weeks up in Brimley, Michigan, at Continental Proving Grounds pounding on trucks in the snow, tearing them apart, doing it again. This harsh cold winter testing is just one of the critical steps to getting our vehicles ready for production.⁣

We are constantly driving the B1 and B2, racking up miles, continuing the endless optimization of every system, part, and function.⁣

The Continental Proving Grounds also gives us a chance to get a feel for how the trucks perform in a variety of road and weather conditions–from iced over roads, cold and snowy, half-icy, half-snow, etc. You name it, they’ve recreated it in a controlled environment for us to test and study on.⁣

After completion of each test, the team looks over every component related to the system being tested. They inspect for uneven wear, excessive heat, stress, damage and a number of other indicators to ensure that everything is holding to its intended purpose. Isolating any fault, correcting and resetting to try and recreate the event until it’s gone helps us eliminate any potential failure for future production trucks.⁣

As Bollinger Motors’s truck technologies evolve, the tests we put them through also evolve. Testing like this is an ongoing process, integral to what makes our trucks unlike anything else available.⁣

PRESS RELEASE

PATENT-PENDING E-CHASSIS

WORLD’S FIRST AND ONLY CLASS 3 ELECTRIC PLATFORM

Our patent-pending E-Chassis is the world’s first and only Class 3 electric platform – and it was designed with commercial applications and versatility in mind.⁣

Our platform includes many of the features shared by both vehicles, including 120-kWh battery pack, front and rear motors, all-wheel drive, power system controls, portal gear hub, thermal-management system and off-road features like hydro-pneumatic self-leveling suspension and independent front and rear suspension. It can be easily adjusted to fit a variety of wheelbase lengths, for front- or rear-wheel-drive setups, and with or without portal gear hubs. It can also accommodate a 180 kWh battery pack.⁣

As CEO and founder Robert Bollinger said: “The Bollinger Motors E-Chassis is a Class 3 skateboard, which can accommodate different vehicle bodies. That can include delivery vans, bucket trucks, ambulances, rescue trucks, shuttle buses, reconnaissance vehicles, and more. The commercial possibilities are endless!”⁣

THE MOTORING CLUB

BOLLINGER MOTORS MEET & GREET AT THE MOTORING CLUB

After a week of testing in Colorado and Utah, we hit the road for Los Angeles to premiere our new B1 and B2 prototypes at the LA Auto show. After giving the trucks a much-needed cleaning, we headed over to The Motoring Club in Marina Del Rey for a private meet and greet with some of our deposit holders. We rolled the trucks right in to their main show room and they looked perfect. 
 
We met some great people, and it was both humbling and rewarding to hear what future Bollinger electric truck owners thought of the B1 and B2 firsthand. It gave us great insight into what people are drawn to in the design and overall functionality. Some guests drove longer than 3 hours to see the trucks. 
 
Michael Rapetti, co-founder and CEO of The Motoring Club, was an excellent host and really made us feel at home. His commitment to the club and community both locally and across the U.S. is impressive, and we appreciate the generosity he showed in sharing his knowledge and resources with Bollinger Motors. 
 
Stay tuned for details on upcoming Bollinger Motors events. If you’d like the opportunity to attend one of our exclusive events, reserve your B1 electric SUV or B2 electric pickup truck today!
