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?
