Bollinger Motors pumps brakes on consumer EVs to focus on commercial trucks.

-John Snyder

Bollinger Motors, an electric truck and chassis platform start-up is targeting the medium-duty fleet truck market.

-Richard Truett

DETROIT — Robert Bollinger’s dream of producing his rugged, boxy off-road electric pickup and SUV will have to wait.

-Martin Romjue

The B2 might look like a knock-down kit you could put together yourself with a rudimentary set of instructions, but underneath it’s a clever thing.

-Tom Harrison

There is no question that the Bollinger B1 and B2 have a unique design that is simple and purposeful.

-Andre Smirnov

You get a lot of power, a lot of battery, a 15-kW inverter to run 110-volt accessories from the eight available plugs, and the rugged no-nonsense look of a press-break-built DIY Land Rover Defender.

-Frank Markus

This electric truck and SUV pack some serious specs. The most impressive part of this reveal is the spec sheet. Both of these EVs are plenty potent, with a dual electric-motor setup granting 614 horsepower and 668 pound-feet of torque.


(Bollinger Motors) wants to sell you one ‘forever truck’ that will last you the rest of your life.


It would seem the smartest minds in the room then, are the smaller start-ups like… Bollinger, which already look primed for success…

-Bryan Campbell

It looks like it was sketched with a pencil and a rafter square, which is to say it would appear in a police lineup with old Ford Broncos and new Jeep Wranglers. The guts, though, are unlike any truck yet conceived.

-Ezra Dyer

Bollinger didn’t set out to design a mall prowler. The Bs offer an adjustable suspension that lets the driver dial in between 10 and 20 inches of ground clearance, and a two-speed gearbox with high and low ranges. They sound like true, no-nonsense off-roaders.


Bollinger trumped the B1 by unveiling an impossibly cool pick-up version, the B2. Now, the company has introduced a slew of custom configurations designed to make the B1 and B2 even more bespoke.


Unchanged, though, is the B1 and B2’s focus on off-road ability. Both the pickup truck and SUV offer a two-speed transfer case, 15 inches of ground clearance, and 10 inches of suspension travel.

-Brandon Turkus

In short, the goal is to create a nondisposable truck: a 4×4 rugged enough to last for decades, simple enough for its owner to modify and flexible enough to evolve alongside rapidly advancing battery technology.
