They started with a half-cab pickup, so why not go all the way?
Bollinger Motors recently revealed their all-electric, all-wheel drive B2 Pickup.
The new B2 follows the company’s B1 Sport Utility Truck which, thanks to removable body panels, can be configured as an SUV or half-cab pickup. Both vehicles are in pre-production.
As the B1 edges closer to the assembly line, Bollinger reports that the B2 Pickup became a natural addition.
“The new B2 incorporates everything that we’ve learned in making the B1, and takes it in an exciting new direction,” said Bollinger Motors Founder Robert Bollinger. “It’s always been the plan to have both the B1 and B2 start off our line-up. Now that we have so much incredible data from testing our B1 prototype, we can put all of that engineering knowledge into our final four-door B1 and B2 vehicles. It’s the pickup I always wanted and something crazy better than what’s available on the market today.”
Both the B1 and new B2 sport dual motors, all-wheel drive, hydropneumatic suspension, in-wheel portal gear hubs, 120 kWh battery pack, large front trunk space, and patented pass-through doors for transporting long items.
Storage was a priority for the B2. The Bollinger Motors Pickup’s bed is 4-foot, 1-inch wide and 5-foot, 9-inches long. With the tailgate down, the B2 can carry up to 72 full sheets of plywood. The rear glass also opens up like the B1, allowing storage to the top of the cab.
Much like the B1, the B2 will also be a Class 3 work truck (10,001 gross vehicle weight rating) with a hauling capability of 5000 lbs.
Bollinger recently relocated its headquarters from New York to Michigan to take full advantage of the automotive manufacturing network based in and around Detroit.
Bollinger plans to manufacture the B2 on the same assembly line as the B1 in 2020. Bollinger will be announcing a full suite of vehicle options, pricing and delivery details in 2019.
Bollinger Motors is currently taking reservations for the B1 and B2 on their website with no money down. For more information, please visit www.bollingermotors.com.
