Bollinger Motors announces an indefinite postponement of the Bollinger B2 and B1 all-electric sport trucks. The company says it will now focus on electrified commercial vehicles starting with Class 3 and going up to Class 6. If you have made a deposit for a Bollinger B1 and/or B2 off-road vehicle, your deposit will be refunded.

TFLtruck has been following Bollinger Motors from the very beginning when the company first showed its B1 prototype in New York City in July 2017.

Since then the company made a huge amount of progress, but their unique off-road electric trucks will not see production. The company has made several announcements related to the commercial vehicle market. In December, Bollinger Motors announced a partnership with EAVX to continue the development of commercial EV chassis and vehicles.

These EV commercial chassis can underpin large delivery vans and utility trucks of all kinds. This may even be a basis for an EV motorhome if such an upfitter wants to build on this new platform.

Many other companies, such as: GM’s BrightDrop, Ford, Rivian, Ram, and others are either producing electric delivery vans or are planning to produce these very soon. However, there is still a big need for larger Class 4-6 vehicles with 1,000 cu-ft of cargo capacity or more.

We look forward to learning more about these new vehicles in the future. For now, here is a look back at our recent visit to the Bollinger Motors headquarters in Michigan.
