Bollinger Teases Prototype Unveiling Next Month

After 18 weeks of preparation, Bollinger’s team has its two new prototype designs almost ready for next month’s unveiling, on September 26. The first vehicle, the B1, is an SUV, not unlike a classic Ford Bronco. The B2, a similar design, has a pickup truck bed instead of an enclosed SUV.

Last week, Bollinger Motors released a video teasing its two new prototypes set for release next month.

After 18 weeks of preparation, Bollinger’s team has its two new prototype designs almost ready for next month’s unveiling, on September 26. The first vehicle, the B1, is an SUV, not unlike a classic Ford Bronco. The B2, a similar design, has a pickup truck bed instead of an enclosed SUV.

The video shows time lapse video of assembly of what appears to be the B1, followed by showing the team roll it away from view.

Bollinger Motors calls the B1 “The world’s most capable sport utility truck.” Designed to look like the classic SUVs of 50 years ago, it packs a high-tech all-electric punch. With 614 horsepower and 668 lb-ft of torque, if they’re exaggerating, it wouldn’t be by much. More than power, 15 inches of clearance and 10 inches of wheel travel should give the B1 and related B2 the ability to do everything the old SUVs did, and more.

The vehicle is slated to come with a 200-mile range and CCS fast charging, so it should be capable of serving in a variety of roles for those not strictly doing off-roading.

More information about the B1 can be found here.
