Bollinger Motors has released the first details about their upcoming B2 pickup truck.
Described as a “natural addition” to their product lineup, the B2 is based on the B1 SUV and features many of the same components. As a result, both models have two electric motors and a 120 kWh battery pack.
This setup enables the truck to produce 520 hp (387 kW / 527 PS) and 514 lb-ft (696 Nm) of torque. The company says this will enable the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 6.5 seconds before hitting a top speed of 100 mph (160 km/h).
The B2 will have a range of approximately 200 miles (321 km) on a single charge. When the battery is depleted, it can be recharged in 75 minutes with a Level 3 DC fast charger or 10 hours with a Level 2 220V charger.
Besides the electric powertrain, the B2 features an all-aluminum body with “patented pass-through doors for transporting long items.” The model also has a hydropneumatic suspension and in-wheel portal gear hubs.
The truck features a 69 inch (1.7 meter) long bed and a rear window that can be opened to haul longer items. In total, Bollinger says the B2 can accommodate up to 72 sheets of 4’ x 8’ plywood.
The B2 is slated to go into production in 2020 and the company plans to announce pricing and options next year. Bollinger is currently accepting reservations with no money down.
In a statement, Bollinger Motors founder Robert Bollinger said “The new B2 incorporates everything that we’ve learned in making the B1 and takes it in an exciting new direction.” He added, “It’s the pickup I always wanted and something crazy better than what’s available on the market today.”
