Ladies & Gentlemen, Bring Your Electric Truck Chassis! Bollinger e-Chassis HD Platform is Here

Bollinger e-Chassis

What you see here is the new Bollinger e-Chassis that the company unveiled today. According to the company, it is a heavy duty Class 3 chassis with a weight rating of greater than 10,001 lbs.

It is practically the same 4×4 chassis that underpins the Bollinger B1 and B2 electric trucks, but the e-Chassis will be offered to other companies as a basis for their own vehicles.

The Bollinger e-Chassis will be offered with a standard 120 kWh lithium-ion (or an optional 180 kWh) battery pack. The chassis has an adjustable height suspension, ability to lock front the rear “differentials” for maximum traction, and an ability to disconnect front and rear sway bars.

Total electric motor output can be as high as 614 hp and 668 ft-lb of torque. There is one motor in the front and another in the rear. This chassis offers excellent ground clearance, and approach/departure angles.

What does the e-Chassis has to contend against? How about the following.

The Rivian battery-electric platform will underpin the upcoming R1T and R1S truck and SUV. However, some technology and components will also be shared with Ford, Lincoln, and perhaps other vehicles.

Naturally, there are other electric truck platforms as well, but these are the ones we currently know the most about.
