Earlier this summer, Bollinger Motors unveiled its B1 all-electric sport utility truck. The high-end off-roader masterfully combines retro looks and rugged usefulness with the latest in battery electric powertrain technology. The two-door truck has a configurable cab that allows for an open bed, or an enclosed cabin with a second row of seating. Now the company is showing the first image of a four-dour version of the B1 … in orange, no less.
The addition of two rear doors adds 9 inches to the wheelbase and overall length, for a total of 114 and 159 inches, respectively. It also adds 6 cubic feet of cargo room for a total of 101 cubic feet. Ground clearance is unchanged, as are approach and departure angles. Breakover angle suffers a bit from the added length, at 31 degrees, down from 33.
“We always wanted to make a four-door version of the B1, and our assistant designer Ross Compton and I developed a great sketch,” says Bollinger Motors Designer and CEO Robert Bollinger. “The vehicle still has great proportions and its amazing off-road capabilities remain intact since we only had to stretch the chassis by 9 inches.”
Both the two- and four-door versions of the Bollinger B1 will be available with 60-kWh or 100-kWh battery options. That orange paint color, which we actually quite like, will indeed be available at launch.
