showcased in 2017, the ‘B1’ is an all-electric sport utility truck that, even before hitting production, marked a more efficient, greener option for the vehicle segment. as mentioned, even before reaching customers, bollinger motors have now revealed its big brother, the ‘B2’. this truck offers similar electrified performance but with even more cargo options.

with its prototyping scheduled for early 2019, the bollinger motors ‘B2’ features a bed of 1.25m wide by 1.8m long. the cab tailgate can be lowered to carry 1.2 x 2.4m sheets of plywood, with the rear glass also opening up to allow storage from the top of the cab. overall, it will offer a hauling capacity of 5000 lbs, making the green vehicle an exceptional workhorse.

 

 

sharing the same DNA as the ‘B1’, the new truck is equipped with sport dual motors, all-wheel drive, hydro-pneumatic suspension and in-wheel portal gear hubs. this is as well as the 120 kWh battery pack, which will deliver a range of 200 miles with tops speeds of 100 mph, 520 hp and 514 ft-lb of torque.

 

  • This is so what the Land Rover defender should have become.

  • Likely, ‘Limited to 100 vehicles’ by the manufacturer… <10 by the market.

  • @JimCan well… top news on their own website seems to suggest that they already have 20000 reservations. That being said, those are no-money-down and no-obligation reservations so who knows how many sales that translates to.

    Mathias Nielsen says:
  • Price point is crucial for me. I will be interested in one but cannot pay high multiples of price over I.C.E. truck of similar utility.

  • Front and Rear bumpers should have hitch receivers for pulling trailers and mounting recovery winches. Also winch 12V Power sockets. For carrying a load of lumber like that, need some sort of tie-downs and headache rack to prevent load from killing driver and passenger. Needs to be ladder frame vs unibody, and 4×4. Back tailgate would be better if it was a RAMP to allow easy loading of bikes, tools, mowers, etc and provide easier clean out. Not to keen on sun roof, will bake you during hot months also thieves will probably break top to enter. Would be better to see some sort of integrated ladder rack that stretches across the roof from bumper to bumper to carry longer materials up top especially seeing that this truck will probably not pull a 5th wheel or gooseneck. Maybe ram box tool boxes around wheel well dead space. Bed needs to be at least 50″ wide flat between wheel wells for dimensional sheet material. Maybe dump bed option with removable sides for side loading pallets.
