An all-new startup automaker, Bollinger Motors, has revealed its first vehicle ever: the all-electric B1 Sport Utility Truck. Revealed at an event in New York City, the B1 is looking to innovate in the pickup truck segment by using electric power to work hard and play hard off road, and on paper, its numbers are impressive.
The B1 features a rugged chassis and drivetrain, wrapped in a lightweight aluminum body, and has 15.5 inches of ground clearance for navigating rough terrain. The battery packs and the drivetrain are all low and between the chassis rails, which makes for a low center of gravity while freeing up space for cargo capacity.
Power to the wheels comes from a dual-motor powertrain, with the front and rear motors capable of generating 472 lb-ft of torque, and delivering up to 360 hp to the drivetrain.
The entire truck weighs about 3,900 pounds and has a towing 6,100 lb capacity, but when empty, can go from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and can hit 127 miles per hour.
Owners will have two battery options, 60 kWh or 100 kWh, capable of a range per charge of either 120 miles or 200 miles, and a charge time of 7 hours and 12 hours, respectively.
Regenerative braking will help recoup some range, while also potentially making it a more maneuverable and nimble vehicle on rough terrain.
