Already on September 26, the American startup Bollinger Motors intends to premiere the product versions of the B2 pickup truck and the B1 SUV. It is planned that next year the cars will begin to roll off the assembly line.

The Bollinger concern became known back in 2017. Then she presented the Primitive SUV B1, which received an aluminum body and an electric motor. At the same time, the manufacturer said that in mid-2019, the car will be launched in serial production. A free pre-order collection has begun.

As it usually happens, the automaker did not meet the deadlines, because the middle of the year has long passed. So that customers interested in the brand do not panic, last week the manufacturer demonstrated the assembly of pre-production prototypes and set a date for the demonstration – then the cost will be posted.

Two years made some changes to the project. So, a three-door SUV B1 will replace a five-door analog with the same designation, as well as a B2 pickup based on an SUV. The latter will receive a 3018 mm wheelbase, and the overall length will be 4356 mm. As for the pickup, its wheelbase is 3531 mm, overall length is 5270 mm. Both cars have a load capacity of 2268 kg, and they also accommodate only four passengers. The curb weight of the SUV and pickup is 2177 kg and 2268 kg, respectively.

The engine of the machine consists of two electric motors, which generally give a power of 622 horsepower. Also, the car has reduction gears to move on the road. Almost up to a hundred, both cars can accelerate to hundreds in 4.5 seconds. maximum speed is 160 km / h. The motors are powered by a lithium-ion battery, which provides 322 kilometers of travel.

As for the design, its components are a removable windshield, cover panels and doors on external hinges. It also claims the presence of an audio system, air conditioning and heated seats.

Basically, the main questions are about machine safety. Most likely, passive systems will be represented only by belts. The interior contains a large number of corners that can cause injuries during an accident. Due to the special body structure, it is not possible to guarantee that the Bollinger will pass the crash test and withstand at least certification impacts. In principle, if the car does not receive access to public roads, tourists and hunters will calmly neglect safety.

After analyzing the video, we can conclude that cars were created using bypass technology. It is very difficult to imagine how almost in the garage conditions more than thirty thousand cars will be assembled. It is planned to create a new plant in Detroit, however, information about it is practically absent.
