Electric Pickup Truck is Beefy Like a Hummer

Electric Pickup Truck is Beefy Like a Hummer

If you want some muscle from your EV, Bollinger Motors’ B2 electric pickup might fit the bill.

Last year, Bollinger unveiled the B1 electric SUV, the world's first all-electric sport utility truck, and a mere 10 months later, they rolled out a longer pickup variant.

The B2 sports all-electric, all-wheel drive, with a 120-kWh lithium-ion battery driving two electric motors. A quick glance reveals the B2’s inspiration – Bollinger would never admit this, but their electric pickup (and the B1 for that matter) looks eerily similar to the Hummer H1, and not coincidentally, they both fall within the same Class 3 work truck category.

This means the B2 is boxy. Very boxy.

The B2 includes a 5-foot, 9-inch bed, with the ability to haul 5,000 pounds, and 7,500 lb towing capacity. It’ll boast 520 Horsepower, 514 ft-lb Torque, and 9.6 Power/Weight Ratio.

According to the company, with the internal cab tailgate, the Bollinger Motors Pickup can carry full 4' x 8' sheets of plywood. And “the rear glass also opens up like the B1, allowing storage to the top of the cab, accommodating 72 sheets of 1/2” plywood.”

A prototype should appear sometime next year, and the B1 and B2 should both go into production in 2020.
