Bollinger B1 electric sport utility truck debuts with 200-mile range”

American startup Bollinger Motors introduced its first model called the B1 with a 360-horsepower electric motor.

Bollinger Motors was founded in 2014, by Robert Bollinger- an Industrial Design graduate from Carnegie Mellon University, who brought together a team of engineers with the vision to create the very first sport utility EV truck, inspired by life in the Catskills and the iconic Land Rover Defender.

The Bollinger B1 rides on a lightweight aluminum architecture. It measures 150-inches longer, 76.5-inches wide and 73.5-inches tall. Well the USA company tell us the B1 gives 394mm (15.5in) of ground clearance and the independent, hydro-pneumatic suspension provides 254mm (10in) of wheel travel.

The company says that performance is good for a zero-to-60 time of 4.5 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 127 miles per hour. The B1 also has a payload capacity of 6,100 lbs.

Employing a dual-motor powertrain, the vehicle will be offered with two lithium ion battery pack options: 60 kWh or 100 kWh, delivering either 120 miles (193km) or 200 miles (320km) in range.

The B1 has a J1772 universal connector for conventional 110V and 220V charging while Level 3 "DC Fast" charging is completed through a CHAdeMO protocol charge port on the vehicle's fender.

Manufacturing of the sport utility truck is still being finalized, but the company is looking to open company and retail stores in major cities across the U.S. Interested individuals can reserve a spot online with no money down, and early next year reservation holders will be able to order their B1 with a $1,000 down payment.
