Although Rivian is getting its deserved share of attention, earlier today in Ferndale, Michigan, another electric vehicle startup, Bollinger Motors, unveiled the “beta prototype” versions of its B1 SUV and B2 pickup truck, both based on the company’s Class-3 truck platform and both sharing a whole lot of sheet metal—and as one look tells you, there is a lot of sheet metal on these trucks.

The company released the following specs for the trucks:

Dual Motor

614 horsepower

668 lb.-ft. torque

0 to 60 mph: 4.5 seconds

Top speed: 100 mph

7.8 power to weight ratio

2-speed, hi/lo range gearbox

15” ground clearance

10” wheel travel (10” to 20” variable ground clearance)

Payload capacity: 5,201 lb.

Towing capacity: 7,500 lb.

Geared axle hubs

LT285/70/R17 tires

11.75” vented brakes

4-wheel anti-lock inboard discs

120 kWh battery pack

Patented storage pass-through door

Pricing, production launch and the like are yet to be revealed.

But what we can tell is that Robert Bollinger and his team are serious about these vehicles, and while they might not have the visibility of the company that has vehicle engineering operations some 25 miles to the southwest of Ferndale, in Plymouth, they are clearly in the EV utility game.
