Bollinger Motors teases four-door B1 electric truck - in orange

Bollinger Motors teases four-door B1 electric truck - in orange”

The utilitarian all-electric off-roader was revealed in two-door format back in July, now the USA -based start-up has shown the four-door version of the B1 in the above teaser image.

From the missive sent along with the sketch you see above, we get the strong impression that Bollinger fully intends to build both versions of the B1. Looking like an even more rugged take on the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, but with a green twist, the four-door B1 doesn't forget it was born to work, improving cargo space by an additional six cubic feet. And, in fact, it declares that the orange paint that appears in the image will be available when it first leaves the factory doors.

The addition of two rear doors adds 9 inches to the wheelbase and overall length, for a total of 114 and 159 inches, respectively.

The outfit has just released a sketch from its assistant designer Ross Compton that stretches the chassis by nine inches between the axles and adds a second set of doors.

While the longer/four-door truck will have the same ground clearance (393mm), adjustable wheel travel, approach (56 degrees) and departure angles (53 degrees), it will have a new break-over angle of 31 degrees.

Bollinger Motors say they're now finishing the engineering of the B1 and will be commencing production soon.

Started in 2014, Bollinger Motors is a US-based company headquartered in New York State. We're revolutionizing truck and SUV design by creating the B1 - the world's first all-electric, on-and-off-road sport utility truck (SUT). It's second to none off road, and the ideal work truck for ranchers, builders, do-it-yourselfers, or anyone looking for an electric vehicle with unparalleled traction, torque, and ground clearance.
