Bollinger Motors plans to produce and sell the all-electric B2 Chassis Cab, the world's first and only Class 3 all-electric chassis-cab truck platform
Bollinger Motors has announced that it plans to produce and sell the all-electric B2 Chassis Cab, the Bollinger B2CC, the platform is the world’s first and only Class 3 all-electric chassis-cab truck platform, and it offers unlimited work truck variants.
“The Bollinger B2 Chassis Cab’s unique features – including the 5,000-lb. payload and large energy source to power tools – make it perfect for businesses, small and large,” says CEO Robert Bollinger. “Commercial fleets will be able to reduce their overall cost of operation while buying a truck designed, engineered, and built in the USA. The B2CC is an ideal option for municipalities, parks services, emergency response vehicles, airports, construction, landscaping, electricians, plumbers, security, non-tactical military, and more.”
The Bollinger B2 Chassis Cab will be built on the patent-pending Bollinger Motors E-Chassis all-wheel-drive base that underpins the Bollinger B1 Sport Utility Truck and the B2 Pickup. It will be available in both 2-door and 4-door variant cabs and on multiple wheelbase lengths as well.
Some of the features of the patent-pending Bollinger B2 Chassis Cab include:
- 120 kWh battery pack
- All-wheel drivetrain
- Dual motor
- 5,000 lb. payload
- Electronic traction and stability control
- 10 kW onboard charger/inverter
- Integrated thermal management system
- Complete power system controls, configurable to given vehicle application
The B2 Chassis Cab will be made available to commercial outfitters in late 2021 in both full cab and cutaway-cab variants. The firm had filed the provisional patent application for all-electric Class 3 vehicles on November 18, 2019.
