Bollinger Motors, an American start-up now based in Michigan, has just unveiled the two versions of its new electric SUV with a rudimentary design, simply called B1 and B2. Intended for a professional market, the B1 jeep and B2 pickup presented last Thursday should go into production in 2020, provided that the young company find the necessary funds.
Bollinger Motors unveiled its two all-terrain vehicles, B1 and B2
This 4 × 4 B1 looks like a Jeep Wrangler, with fewer curves and its pick-up version, the B2, should have the same technical characteristics as the two-door version presented two years ago, especially with regard to the powertrain. Equipped with two motors, one for each axle, the B1 and B2 from Bollinger Motors are expected to field an output equivalent to 614 horsepower, powered by a 120 kWh battery with a range of 200 kilometers. If their top speed is restricted to 160 km / h, acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h is assumed in 4.5 seconds.

With a very spartan design with straight lines, these B1 and B2 all aluminum do not rely on their performance in terms of speed or their charm to appeal to future buyers, more inclined to look towards the Porsche Macan or from Audi and its Q4 E-tron SUV. As a result, these two vehicles are intended more for a utility career, with landowners or any other outside worker. Their ground clearance of 40 centimeters, their payload capacity of 2.5 tonnes and their towing force of 3.5 tonnes make them ideal companions for trips off the beaten track..
The B1 and B2 of Bollinger Motors are intended above all for a professional clientele
While the production of these two all-terrain vehicles is scheduled for 2020, with a view to delivery in 2021, Bollinger Motors has apparently still not found the investors likely to finance it, and has therefore not communicated either the sale price for the moment.
