Bollinger updates all-electric B1 truck design with removable glass

Bollinger Motors, a New York-based electric vehicle startup, is working to bring to market a unique all-electric truck: the Bollinger B1.

The startup has now released a new design of the 4-door version of the all-electric truck with removable glass.

The Bollinger B1 is being designed to have the most simple line possible and be easy to manufacture.

They are going for a robust platform protected with a roll-cage structure.

As part of that effort, we learn today that what is around that structure is modular and removable.

Bollinger released a new image on Twitter of a new 4-door B1 design with removable glass:

“Rendering of the new 4-door B1 with doors off. All glass (minus the windshield) will be removable leaving the roll-cage structure.”

Here’s the new rendering that they released today:

As we previously reported, Bollinger recently updated its all-electric utility truck specs with a bigger battery pack for 200 miles of range.

Bollinger says that the B1 will have “a 120-kWh battery pack providing a minimum 200-mile range”:

The Bollinger Motors B1 features an all-aluminum chassis and body with a dual-motor electric powertrain married to a 120-kWh battery pack providing a minimum 200-mile range. The 5,000-pound truck has a payload capacity of 5,000 pounds, and an adjustable suspension can vary ground clearance from 10 to 20 inches.

Earlier this year, Bollinger partnered with Optimal, Inc. of Plymouth, MI to “help bring the Bollinger B1 all-electric, all-wheel-drive Sport Utility Truck to production.”

The two companies now plan on finalizing their work on the Bollinger B1 by the end of 2018, which will be on target for a late 2019 start of production.

Bollinger Motors claims it received 10,000 reservations for its all-electric truck.
