July 27, 2017 7:00 pm ET (New York, NY) – On July 27, 2017, Bollinger Motors revealed the all-electric B1 sport utility truck to a global audience during a media event at the Classic Car Club of Manhattan.

A no nonsense back to basics all-electric sport utility truck, the Bollinger B1 is the world’s first all-electric, all-wheel drive, off/ on road sport utility truck.

Environmentally-friendly, the  project is a showcase for American ingenuity and a model for clean energy enterprise and innovation designed, engineered and manufactured in the US.


The vehicle incorporates the rugged, heavy-duty truck design that will resonate with contemporary and traditional off-road vehicle enthusiasts, and from the pictures, this looks super cool.

“We are so thrilled to be able to finally take the wraps off of our Bollinger B1 SUT,” said Bollinger Motors’ founder and CEO, Robert Bollinger. “This is the culmination of what has been a 40-year-long boyhood dream of mine and I couldn’t be more pleased with the vehicle and the incredible team who worked so hard to create it.”

“Because the entire drivetrain and battery storage system is located between the chassis rails, the B1 has abundant and unique storage areas and a very low center of gravity providing for unsurpassed stability,” said Karl Hacken, Bollinger Motors’ lead engineer. “

While the Bollinger B1 sports serious off-roading credentials, the vehicle also has impressive performance statistics.  A regenerative braking system and with the instant torque provided courtesy of the electric drivetrain, the B1 has a noteworthy 0-60 time of just 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 127 miles per hour, and the batteries generate 360 horsepower and a massive 472 lb-ft of torque.

From Bolinger, “This vehicle signifies a huge leap above what is currently on the market. There’s nothing like it out there.”

“While we’ll be announcing pricing and manufacturing targets later this year, the B1 makes sense at a very realistic and modest production numbers and at a price point of a nicely equipped sport utility vehicle,” said Bollinger. “When you factor in this vehicle’s superiority over the other choices on today’s market, we think we have a winning combination.”

Once manufacturing is finalized, B1 deliveries are targeted to start within 19 months. Initially a direct-to- consumer sales model will be employed for the B1.

In the future, Bollinger will also look to open company and retail stores in major cities across the US. For now, the B1 will be available through and interested individuals can reserve a spot simply by signing up online with no money down. In early 2018 reservation holders will be able to order their B1 with a $1,000 down.
