Bollinger Motors has just introduced its much-anticipated B1 Electric Sport Utility Truck. The B1 is notable: as a highly energy-efficient design, it may be an example of what the near future holds for the class.
Years of work went into the development of the B1. While the utility truck does boast an impressive electric powertrain, what’s surprising is its traditional three-box design, which gives the vehicle an old-school look.
The off-road capable vehicle is truly designed for utility with large mud tires, a high stance, and interior features designed for durability and off-road workhorse use, like polyurethane-coated floor pans and sealed gauges.
Of course, cargo room is a necessity in any truck, and the B1 doesn’t disappoint with a 14-cubic-foot trunk, a large front storage area, and a passthrough to add length fit for up to 24 2x4s as long as 12 feet.
The all-wheel-drive setup is powered by either a 60- or 100-kWh battery pack and two electric motors that offer 360 hp and 473 lb-ft of torque.
Pricing has yet to be revealed, but Bollinger is aiming to release the new trucks by the end of 2018.
