Bollinger Motors, a Michigan-based electric truck startup, has announced the price of its first vehicles.
The B1 SUV is the automaker's "baby" that received "every ounce of research and development and time."
"If you could take everything you love about a classic truck and combine it with the most refined essentials of a modern truck, redesign it with the highest quality materials and components available, oh and make it an electric vehicle — you'd have the basics for the Bollinger B1 electric sport utility truck," the automaker said in its website.
Production will start this year, and the first deliveries will happen in 2021. Keep scrolling to learn more about the B1 and its pickup truck counterpart:
It also has an approximate 200-mile range and an estimated 70.2 miles-per-gallon gasoline-equivalent, though that has not been measured by an independent agency yet.
Its power is supplied by a 120 kWh battery pack. The car can be charged in 75 minutes with a DC fast charger, or in 10 hours with a 220-volt charger.
It has a top speed is 100 mph…
…and a zero-to-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds.
The front and rear motors are electronically linked, allowing the car to be an all-wheel-drive and for consistent monitoring of the torque and speed.
B1's towing capacity is rated at 7,500 pounds.
The vehicle has regenerative braking, which allows the motor to convert lost energy from braking back into stored energy in the battery.
The SUV can seat four passengers and has 113 cubic feet of cargo capacity, including the frunk, when the rear seats are removed. The seats will be available in a cloth, leather, or vegan leather finish.
The carmaker claims the glass, doors, and roof panels are easily removable.
“Its design is intentionally minimalist, resulting in a timeless, uncluttered simplicity,” Bollinger designer Hunter Erdman wrote in a prepared statement discussing design highlights.
Optional add-ons include all-glass roof panels, pictured below, and heated seats.
There are 10 110-volt outlets around the car.
It also includes vegan leatherette center panels and eight speakers.
The interior components have been sealed for water fording up to 36 inches. This also means the interior can be hosed out.
The underbelly, pictured below, is made of aviation-grade carbon Kevlar, making it resistant to scratches and catches from roots, rocks, or branches, according to the automaker.
It has a patent-pending pass-through door on the dashboard that connects the frunk to the passenger cabin, allowing for the storage of longer items.
The B2 Pickup Truck has a 72-inch bed that can expand up to 96 inches.
“We’re going to production with all of the components and features that our team developed from the start; we’re staying true to our DNA” Bollinger founder Robert Bollinger said in a prepared statement.
