Startup Bollinger from Michigan, which is engaged in the construction of electric SUVs, named the prices for models B1 and B2. In the United States, the cost of both will be at least $ 125,000. For comparison, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class will cost $ 124.5 thousand.

Both Bollinger models are built on an aluminum alloy skateboard platform. All body panels are made of the same material. The power plant B1 and B2 consists of two electric motors with a total capacity of 622 horsepower and a torque of 906 Nm. “Hundred” 2.2-ton cars gain in 4.5 seconds. A 120 kilowatt-hour battery provides 322 kilometers of EPA passport power reserve.

The constant ground clearance of SUVs is 381 millimeters, but it can be changed in the range from 254 to 508 millimeters. The geometric cross-country ability of Bollinger is comparable to army special vehicles: the entry angle is 52 degrees, the exit angle is 43 degrees, and the suspension travel is 254 mm.

The pickup is almost a meter longer and inferior in terms of the exit angle (“only” 28 degrees), but it differs in carrying capacity of 2.3 tons and the ability to transport five-meter long meters through the through holes in the body. In addition, the Bollinger B2 is capable of towing a 3.4-ton trailer.

Small-scale assembly of Bollinger models will begin in 2020. They will compete with the SUV and pickup Rivian R1S and R1T. According to preliminary information, each is equipped with four electric motors with a total capacity of 760 horsepower and can travel 645 kilometers on a single charge.
