The B2 Chassis Cab is based on the Bollinger’s flexible E-Chassis platform that can be equipped with front-, rear- or all-wheel-drive. Plus its wheelbase can also be adjusted to suit different body types. Battery sizes also range from 120-180 kWh and it comes with a 10 kW on-board charger.

 

Look at all of the possibilities.

  • Bollinger has plans for an all-electric, chassis-cab truck platform.
  • It can be used as a tow truck, a box truck, or a bucket truck.
  • The possibilities are endless.

The world needs more electric trucks. They're versatile, usable, customizable, they look cool - and because they don't run on fuel, they're even better.

And if you want an electric truck with endless possibilities for customization, Bollinger Motors' upcoming all-electric, chassis-cab truck platform might be what you're looking for.

It's called the Bollinger B2 Chassis Cab, and the company said in a Thursday announcement that it wants to sell the truck in late 2021. Both full-cab and cutaway-cab versions will be available.

Anyone can buy a B2 Chassis Cab - pedestrian casuals such as you and me, or people who need them for commercial purposes, like landscapers or construction workers.

Sure, it's not available yet. But we can dream.

 

 

The key piece in this plan is the all new B2 Chassis Cab which will be the world’s first Class 3 Commercial EV platform when it eventually goes into production. Built on the same Bollinger’s E-Chassis platform that also sees duty in the B1 and B2, the B2CC brings many of the same features that have helped make their mark in those models. We have listed them all here in this handy list below.

  • Two-door or Four-door cab
  • Various wheelbase lengths, based on desired customization
  • Patent-pending passthrough for storage of long items
  • 120 kWh battery pack
  • All-wheel drivetrain
  • All-terrain capabilities
  • Dual motor
  • Portal gear hubs
  • 5,000 lb. payload
  • Ultra-low center of gravity
  • Hydraulic anti-lock power brakes (ABS)
  • Electronic traction control
  • Electronic stability control
  • Hydraulic power steering
  • Hydro-pneumatic self-leveling suspension
  • Independent front and rear suspension
  • 10kw on-board charger/inverter
  • Complete power system controls, configurable to given vehicle application
  • Integrated thermal-management system

 

However the key here is the sheer amount of flexibility that the B2CC brings to the table, with Bollinger claiming that it can easily morph into a wide range of roles. Bollinger showcased three of these potential roles in some of its images, with the B2 being shown as a traditional box truck, a tow truck, and even a flatbed layout. When combined with the multiple wheelbases that are available with the E-Chassis, as well as the two or four door cab layouts on hand, the B2CC could theoretically offer virtually unlimited work truck variants for commercial customers to choose from.

 

““The Bollinger B2 Chassis Cab’s unique features – including the 5,000-lb. payload and large energy source to power tools – make it perfect for businesses, small and large,” says CEO Robert Bollinger. “Commercial fleets will be able to reduce their overall cost of operation while buying a truck designed, engineered, and built in the USA. The B2CC is an ideal option for municipalities, parks services, emergency response vehicles, airports, construction, landscaping, electricians, plumbers, security, non-tactical military, and more.

 

Bollinger Motors claims that the Bollinger B2 Chassis Cab will begin rolling out to commercial outfitters in late 2021, with both cutaway and four door cab layouts being offered. It will be interesting to see how well received the B2CC is by the commercial sector, especially with companies that are used to using traditional gas powered benchmarks like the Ford Transit, Ram Promaster, and even the axed but still used Ford E-Series lineup.
