Bollinger Motors is now offering a new customizable battery-electric work truck.

The battery-electric work vehicle market is getting a little more crowded as Bollinger Motors has jumped into the fray with a specialized variant of its all-electric B2 called the B2 Chassis Cab, or B2CC.

The B2CC is the world’s first and only Class 3 all-electric chassis-cab truck platform, the company proclaims, adding it will offer 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,” said 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 B2 Chassis Cab comes in two-door and four-door iterations.

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 cabs and on multiple wheelbase lengths.

The new patent-pending Bollinger B2 Chassis Cab offers real flexibility. It can be had as a two- or four-door model in a variety of wheelbase lengths can be chosen by the customer. It’ll be powered by a 120 kWh battery pack and, like the other Bollinger models, have all-wheel drive drivetrain with dual motors capable of hauling a 5,000-pound payload.

It also enjoys all the usual equipment like hydraulic anti-lock power brakes (ABS), electronic traction control, electronic stability control, hydraulic power steering, hydro-pneumatic self-leveling suspension and an independent front and rear suspension.

Bollinger Motors new Class 3 work truck can be configured to fit a variety of applications, like this one.

Additionally, it offers plenty of functionality, such as a 10kw on-board charger/inverter and a complete power system controls, configurable to given vehicle and an integrated thermal-management system. Bollinger is also competing with the likes of Workhorse, or Lordstown Motors, which is in the process of readying the former General Motors Lordstown, Ohio plant – hence the name – to produce work trucks and vans.

Rivian and one of its major investors, Amazon, are in the midst of developing a new electric delivery van. The two recently showed off the new-from-the-ground-up battery electric van in February. The online retail behemoth has agreed to purchase 100,000 of the vans.
