Here’s how much the Bollinger pickup and SUV will cost
First deliveries of the two square models are scheduled for 2021
Bollinger appears poised to have to the first electric pickup on the market, but a pickup isn’t the only model the EV startup plans to put into production soon. The B1 SUV is also on the menu alongside the B2 pickup, and Bollinger will offer both models starting at $125,000.
What does $125,000 get Bollinger EV buyers?
For starters, both models feature a 125-kWh battery pack sending juice to two permanent magnet AC motors, one located in the rear axle and one in the front, good for 614 hp and 668 lb-ft of torque. Equipped for DC fast charging, the SUV and the pickup feature a two-speed transaxle — a rarity among EVs. Both models are expected to have roughly a 200-mile range, even with those square exteriors.
Despite the Borg Cube styling, the SUV can still achieve 0 to 60 mph sprints in 4.5 seconds, and have a 100-mph top speed. Bollinger designed the SUV and the pickup with serious off-road chops in mind, giving the two models plenty of trail driving ability thanks to geared portal axles and 52-degree approach, 43-degree departure and 30-degree breakover angles. The four-door SUV will feature 15 inches of ground clearance and a 113 cu. ft. interior, in addition to a 14 cu. ft. frunk.
“The B2 electric pickup truck is the big brother of the B1,” the automaker says. “Twin DNA. Same everything inside and out, except the long bed mullet haircut. A completely badass electric truck capable of carrying 16-foot cargo through a patented full-length pass-through. With the rear seats out, you can transport a hefty stack of 4×8’s with the tailgate closed. We’ve basically copy and pasted all the B1 research and development, added a pickup truck bed, a super convenient fold-away cab wall and 20 inches to the wheelbase.”
The pickup truck has a 7,500 lb. towing capacity, a 5,000-lb payload and a 96-inch expandable bed.
Based in Detroit, Bollinger plans to build the two models in a factory here starting next year, with the first deliveries scheduled for 2021.
