The World’s First All-electric Sport Utility Truck is Finally Here

The Bollinger B1 was designed, engineered and built here in America. It is a truly capable off road vehicle that offers impressive performance in a wide range of conditions, a HUGE 6,100 lbs load capacity and an impressive all-electric range of up to 200 miles. The classic 3-box shape should resonate with a wide audience, as it is very Defender’esque.

It’s also not slow, with a 127 mph top speed and 0-60 time of only 4.5 seconds.

A real delivery date is still extremely vague; “Once manufacturing is finalized, B1 deliveries are targeted to start within 19 months.” Bollinger is taking emails now and $1,000 down payments in early 2018, to reserve a spot in line to order the B1. No word on asking price yet either, so fingers crossed it will be affordable to the masses.

Is this the future of off-road travel? Will battery power and efficiencies improve enough to make electric range shortcomings a non-issue? Do you want a silent off-road adventuremobile? I personally really hope this vehicle, and more like it, come to the consumer market soon, as they offer performance, capability and a lower environmental impact.
