    Bollinger Motors Reveals Four-Door B1 and B2 Electric Trucks

    Ferndale, Mich., Sept. 26, 2019 -- Bollinger Motors revealed the four-door B1 all-electric Sport Utility Truck and the B2 electric Pickup Truck today. These beta prototypes mark a major milestone in the company’s next steps toward production.

    The Bollinger B1 and Bollinger B2 are the world’s first all-electric off-road and on-road trucks. Built on the Bollinger Motors Class-3 truck platform, both trucks are built with the same DNA created by the team in 2017. Market-leading capabilities include high and low range,15-inch ground clearance, 10-inch wheel travel, patented pass-through door, and 5,000 lbs. of payload. In addition to their off-road credentials, the Bollinger B1 and B2 electric trucks are engineered to be road legal throughout the world.

    Founder and CEO Robert Bollinger’s vision to “reinvent trucks, not just electrify them,” took root in 2015 when he recognized the shortcomings of traditional trucks on his farm. “It was time we did something new,” said Bollinger. “I just wanted to build the best truck without compromise.”

    The Bollinger B1 and B2 reveal was streamed live and may be viewed at the following link:

    While these vehicles have some similarities to the Rivian R1T and R1S, they are also quite different. I don't think many, if any, will cancel their Rivian reservation, that's for sure. Still, there are lots of cool touches that I like: for instance, the light strip running front to back down the spine of the roof to light the interior.

    Rivian offers a lot of the capability here (and more in some cases), but in a more modern package. Also, it's a lot more likely that Rivian will actually make it to "Job One" -- getting product out the door. I wish them both success, of course.

    Reminds me of a Lego build. Only serious buyers for either of those bricks would be commercial use/fleet. Seriously doubt it'll go mainstream which is where Rivian will shine.

    I don't think they intend to go mainstream. It could happen, but first, they need to live up to their modest ambitions and ship a quality vehicle that brings their owners joy. :)
