The all-electric Bollinger B2 looks primitive but had it reached production, it would have put traditional pickup trucks on notice as a result of its impressive capacities and incredible versatility. The B2 pickup was essentially a stretched version of the upstart brand's B1 SUV with a cargo bed out back. Unfortunately, in January 2022 Bollinger announced it had been canceling both the B1 and B2 models to target on a power delivery van instead. Bollinger said the B2's dual electric motors would have combined for 614 horsepower and 688 lb-ft of torque, which may help it to tow around 7500 pounds and carry a payload as high as 5001 pounds. Its battery supported fast-charging capability and was estimated to supply a driving array of 200 miles. The B2 also boasted foldable and removable body panels that imitate the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Gladiator and unlocked unrivaled flexibility. Bollinger B2 could have featured an all-wheel drive system made possible by two electric motors, one mounted at the front and the other mounted at the rear. Together they generated 614 horsepower and 668 lb-ft of torque; Bollinger claimed they'd have propelled the B2 from zero to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and enabled an estimated top speed of 100 mph. Bollinger also said the pickup truck would have a two-speed transfer case with high and low ranges for added off-road capability. Likewise, the B2 was said to have variable ground clearance that ranges from 10 to 20 inches. The electric pickup also had an estimated maximum tow capacity of 7500 pounds and a max payload of 5001 pounds. Bollinger had said its pickup truck would include a 120-kWh battery power that has been expected to provide an EPA-rated driving range of 200 miles. The business claimed the battery could be replenished in 10 hours employing a 220-volt outlet, but it absolutely was also suitable for DC fast charging which will have reduced that time to 75 minutes. Although 2024 Bollinger B2 estimated that the B2 pickup will earn 70 MPGe, the EPA hadn't announced actual fuel-economy figures. Versatility triumphed over comfort in the B2 pickup truck. One of many trucks' most defining features was a hollowed-out interior that allowed an item around 16 feet long to pass through its center. The cabin also had a fold-away rear wall—yes, much such as the "Midgate" on the original Chevy Avalanche—that opened it down and extended the 5-foot-9-inch cargo bed by a lot more than two feet. Just like the aforementioned Jeep products, the B2 had removable body panels that included the doors, windows, roof panels, and windshield. The listing of infotainment and connectivity features was short and unremarkable. Along with standard Bluetooth, the B2 was slated to offer six 110-volt outlets and an unspecified audio system. Because the B2 pickup would have been a Class 3 work truck, it bypassed certain government regulations that required airbags and crash testing.
