CHARGE YOUR BOLLINGER!
THE BOLLINGER NAME MAY BE MORE FAMOUS for champagne than utes, but the American electric vehicle start-up company has released the Bollinger B2, with dual motors, all-wheel drive, hydropneumatic suspension, in-wheel portal gear hubs, 120kwh battery pack, large front trunk space, and patented pass-through doors for transporting long items. Bollinger designed the B2 to be a workhorse, with a hauling capability just under 2300kg. With the dual motors providing 520hp (388kw) and 697Nm, the claimed 0-96km/h is a modest 6.5 seconds. Production is targeted for late-2019. Kind of reminds of another EV, the Top Gear Hammerhead Eagle i-thrust.
Top Gear’s EV effort… or is it the Bollinger?
