Reasons To Choose The Bollinger B2


The all-electric Bollinger B2 appears crude but had it reached production, it would have placed standard pickup trucks on notice owing to its amazing capacity and extraordinary adaptability. The B2 pickup was simply an extended version of the startup brand's B1 SUV with a cargo bed out back. Unfortunately, in January 2022 Bollinger stated it was discontinuing both the B1 and B2 models to concentrate on an electric delivery van instead. Bollinger claimed the B2's two electric motors would have combined for 614 horsepower and 688 lb-ft of torque, which would allow it tow up to 7500 pounds and carry a payload up to 5001 pounds. Its battery included fast-charging capabilities and was predicted to have a driving range of 200 miles. The B2 also sported folding and detachable body sections that resemble the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Gladiator, and allowed unmatched versatility.

EV Motor, Power, and Performance

Every B2 would have had an all-wheel drive system made possible by two electric motors, one installed at the front and the other mounted at the back. Together they developed 614 horsepower and 668 lb-ft of torque; Bollinger said they would have powered the B2 from zero to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and permitted an estimated peak speed of 100 mph. Bollinger also claimed the pickup truck will feature a two-speed transfer case with high and low ranges for increased off-road performance. Likewise, the B2 was supposed to feature variable ground clearance that spans from 10 to 20 inches. The electric pickup truck featured an estimated maximum tow capability of 7500 pounds and a max payload of 5001 pounds.

Range, Charging, and Battery Life

Bollinger Suspends Plans for Electric B1 SUV and B2 Pickup

Bollinger had announced their pickup vehicle will contain a 120-kWh battery pack that was supposed to give an EPA-rated driving range of 200 miles. The business claimed the battery could be recharged in 10 hours using a 220-volt outlet, but it was also compatible with DC fast-charging that would have cut that time to 75 minutes.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPGe

Although Bollinger projected that the B2 truck would achieve 70 MPGe, the EPA hadn't revealed real fuel-economy data.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Versatility prevailed over comfort in the B2 pickup truck. One of the trucks's most striking characteristics was a hollowed-out interior that enabled an object up to 16 feet long to pass through its center. The cabin also included a fold-away rear wall—yes, much like the "Midgate" on the original Chevy Avalanche—that opened it up and enlarged the 5-foot-9-inch cargo bed by more than two feet. Much to the aforementioned Jeep models, the B2 featured replaceable body components that included the doors, windows, roof panels, and windshield.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The list of entertainment and connection functions was limited and uninspiring. Along with basic Bluetooth, the B2 was expected to have six 110-volt outlets and an unidentified audio system.
