Following its electric off-road vehicle B1, the US company Bollinger Motors now presents the B2 – a fully electric pickup truck with an open loading area. It shares many components with the B1, including the twin-engine all-wheel drive coupled with a 120 kWh battery.
Like the B1, the new model is said to reach an EPA range of at least 200 miles (approximately 322 km). Further tech specs include a power output of 520 hp (388 kW) and a torque of almost 700 Nm. Maximum speed of the B2 is at 100 mph (160 km/h), while acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes 6.5 seconds. The payload capacity is supposed to be 2,270 kg, the towing ability up to 3,400 kg.
New is that Bollinger switches the charging standard from CHAdeMO to CCS for both, B2 and B1. According to the manufacturer, Level 2 charging takes 10 hours while DC fast-charging with CCS is done in 75 minutes.
While the B1 was presented last year and is said to enter production by late 2019, the B2 is to follow shortly after: Bollinger announced that order books shall open in 2019 with production kick-off to follow in 2020. Pricing for both models has not yet been revealed.
