Bollinger Motors just introduced their electric all-wheel-drive pickup truck. The truck is called the B2 and has an extremely long wheelbase. It is based on their original four-door B1 prototype. The truck has dual motors hooked up a to a 120-kWh battery pack that gets you roughly 200 miles before needing a charge. Bollinger says the battery can be fully charged in 75 minutes. The B2 has a top speed of 100 mph.
“With a longer wheelbase and added bed length, the B2 Pickup is based on the 4-Door B1 we’ve been working on for a year. It’s a natural addition to the B1 and incorporates everything we’ve learned from our first prototype and all the testing we’ve done over the past year,” says founder Robert Bollinger.
A 100 percent electric drivetrain delivers instant torque, making for silent operation and zero emissions. There is a portable power supply for tools and machines. Bollinger says you can even power an off-the-grid cabin!
The bed on the B2 is 4 feet wide by 5.5 feet long. When the tailgate is down you can load a full sheet of plywood in the bed. The rear glass opens up, allowing for storage in the top of the cab. The truck can haul 5,000 pounds and is a Class 3 work truck. Its ground clearance is 15 inches.
The B1 and B2 will be available for purchase in 2020.
