POINT OF VIEW ON ELECTRIC PICKUP TRUCKS
IS THERE AN ELECTRIC PICKUP TRUCK IN YOUR FUTURE?
Some might think full-electric pickup trucks would be a stretch, particularly in a market that has thus far been dominated by small utilitarian hatchbacks and costly luxury models, sold largely to intellectual and affluent green-minded motorists. But with the EV market now expanding into battery-powered sport-utility vehicles, the electrified pickup market stands as the next great frontier. Several automakers, both upstart and established, are preparing electric pickup trucks for the coming model years. Read full article…
Since trucks are built on massive platforms they can accommodate large long-distance batteries, and the resulting lower center of gravity could give them far more amenable road manners. The Bollinger Motors B2 electric pickup is a class 3 truck with a curb weight of 5,000 lbs.

BOLLINGER GAVE US EXCLUSIVE ACCESS TO THEIR NEW EV WRANGLER FIGHTER…
The Bollinger B1 & B2 are all electric off-road trucks that can haul about 5,000 lbs and have up to 20 inches of ground clearance, front/rear lockers, and a Hi/Lo transfer case.
The Bollinger B1 and B2 are all electric trucks that are rated to haul around 5,000 lbs, and have all the gear to off-road like a Jeep Wrangler or a Jeep Gladiator.
These machines may have classic looks of a Jeep, Land Rover, or an International – but these trucks are bigger in dimensions than you may have initially expected. These trucks are 89 inches wide and about 208 inches long. The B2 crew cab pickup truck has a wheelbase of 139 inches. In other words, they are approximately as wide as a full-size truck, about as long as a midsize crew cab truck, and have a payload capacity of a heavy duty.
The B1 & B2 are class 3 heavy duty trucks, and here is everything about how they are designed and built…
BEHIND THE SCENES
EXPLAINING ELECTRIC TRUCKS
EXCERPT PAGES FROM THE BOLLINGER MOTORS COMPANY OVERVIEW
The Bollinger B1 is the world’s first all-electric off-road and on-road sport utility truck. In order to build relationships with suppliers, fabricators, investors and our ever-growing workforce, we’ve created a handful of company overviews, each tasked with slightly different information. Some talk more about electric vehicle technology. Some talk more about potential return on investment and business model types. Some talk about company culture and the pride we take in our work. It’s a whole new automotive landscape. A lot of it uncharted. A lot of it needing explanation. A company overview helps us do just that.
A page describing the basic specs of the B1 electric truck would be found in any of our company overviews as foundational information. Being a new type of automobile manufacturer, Bollinger Motors uses these documents to help explain what we are doing, the quality we maintain in the process and the overall brand consistency throughout all platforms.
Though most of the mechanical specs are the same between the B1 electric sport utility truck and the B2 electric pickup truck, a page showing the differences between the two models always helps as a reference when first being introduced to the trucks.
Our electric truck platform is unlike anything in existence. Bollinger Motors is creating a 120 kWh battery pack that delivers the power and energy needed for our trucks’ unique needs, including high power motors, heavy-duty power electronics, and Class 3 performance. J1772 CCS plugs enable Level 1, 2, and 3 charging which enables 80% battery charge in less than an hour. 110V and 220V export power will handle any tools you need to use.

BOLLINGER MOTORS WANTS TO BUILD YOU THE LAST TRUCK YOU’LL EVER NEED TO BUY
…The B1 and B2 will almost have more in common with a good cast-iron pan or a pair of Goodyear welt boots than they will with a new smartphone — or a Tesla. They’re designed with durability and reparability, rather than obsolescence, in mind. Buy one to cruise around the family farm upstate, and there’s a good chance your grandkids or great-grandkids will learn to drive in it in a few decades. Though it might have benefited from a few upgrades in the intervening years…
