Tonight, Bollinger Motors officially reveals its much-touted and celebrated B1 and B2 all-electric pickup trucks. These are not just simply fully electric trucks, but instead, they aim to take the segment to a whole other level. But can they really make waves?

InsideEVs, as well as Motor1, will be present this evening for the festivities. That being said, we honestly don't have any idea what to expect here. Bollinger is a very small, niche electric automaker, so its future is questionable. We've seen what's happened with virtually all startup, niche, all-electric automakers to date.

We'd love to see these Bollinger vehicles find huge success and take off like none other. In the end, however, it will all come down to price and availability. If an all-electric pickup truck is affordable and readily available, we see a terrific future, however, we don't expect it to be an easy road ahead.

Bollinger Motors Reveals Four-Door B1 and B2 Electric Trucks
Ferndale, Mich., Sept. 26, 2019 -- Bollinger Motors revealed the four-door B1 all-electric Sport Utility Truck and the B2 electric Pickup Truck today. These beta prototypes mark a major milestone in the company’s next steps toward production.
The Bollinger B1 and Bollinger B2 are the world’s first all-electric off-road and on-road trucks. Built on the Bollinger Motors Class-3 truck platform, both trucks are built with the same DNA created by the team in 2017. Market-leading capabilities include high and low range,15-inch ground clearance, 10-inch wheel travel, patented pass-through door, and 5,000 lbs. of payload. In addition to their off-road credentials, the Bollinger B1 and B2 electric trucks are engineered to be road legal throughout the world.
Founder and CEO Robert Bollinger’s vision to “reinvent trucks, not just electrify them,” took root in 2015 when he recognized the shortcomings of traditional trucks on his farm. “It was time we did something new,” said Bollinger. “I just wanted to build the best truck without compromise.”
The Bollinger B1 and B2 reveal was streamed live and may be viewed at the following link:
