“Robert is always pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo in his passion to build a better, more efficient, and more sustainable vehicle for the next century,” said MICHauto Executive Director Glenn Stevens. “We’re fortunate to have Bollinger Motors and the contributions they are making every day to our automotive ecosystem.”
Robert Bollinger founded his company in New York in 2015 and debuted a prototype of an electric truck in 2017. Shortly afterward, the company moved to Oak Park, where his team of 60 manufactures commercial electric trucks. Bollinger’s goal is to create affordable, efficient and long-lasting vehicles.
Bollinger serves on the Neighborhood Services Organization board of directors and recently led a project at Carnegie Mellon University exploring the use of electric vehicles during water crises and disaster relief. He is partnering with Michigan State University, Ingham County and Qnergy to research waste-to-electricity solutions for small- and medium-sized farms.
