Bollinger Motors teases its all-electric sport truck with first image

Reflection Of Trees In Puddle On Muddy Field

Bollinger Motors, a New York-based electric vehicle startup currently stepping out of stealth mode, is working on an all-electric sport truck and released today the first teaser picture of the vehicle.

The picture doesn’t show much. It’s literally a picture of the truck’s reflection in a puddle of water.

Robert Bollinger, Founder of Bollinger Motors, said about the release of the picture:

“We’re keeping the design a secret for now, but this gives you an idea of what we’re working on: simple, flat sides and sharp lines.”

You can still definitely see that the side panels are completely flat, which results in a very simple look.

We added a cropped and horizontally flipped version of the picture above, but here’s the actual teaser image:Reflection Of Trees In Puddle On Muddy Field

Flat panels are not really about aesthetic here but manufacturability. Bollinger says that it will enable the startup to manufacture its own all-aluminum body panels:

“Flat planes with bends, chamfers and controlled bends are possible with minimal machinery, avoiding expensive molds and stamps. The end result is a rugged, easily assembled truck ready for the great outdoors, off-road or on the highways and city streets.”

The company is developing an all-electric all-wheel drivetrain with 50/50 weight distribution to power this new vehicle, which will be unveiled this summer.

It is described as a “sport utility truck” with “best-in-class horsepower, torque, traction, angle departures and ground clearance.”

While Bollinger isn’t exactly the only company working on all-electric trucks since Elon Musk announced last year that Tesla is working on a pickup and a few other companies announced plug-in/HEV trucks, the company could be alone (for now) in the “sport utility truck” segment. Though there have been conversions of on- and off-road utility trucks before, like Arnold Schwarzenegger’s custom all-electric Mercedes G-Class made by Kreisel Electric.

Bollinger claims that the truck it is teasing today will be the “first fully-working, production-ready, all-electric full-size truck” when they unveil it this summer. They plan to bring it to production in 2018.
