Bollinger Motors is one of the many startups looking to catch a break on the developing electric car market – and their idea is to entice buyers to an all-electric truck model.
So far the developing marque has only presented teaser details about its upcoming electric truck – they showed the chassis and now the interior. The company has also announced the introduction of the truck will take place in New York sometime this summer – so we might get other teasers along the way. “The interior is minimalist by design. The vehicle’s generous use of aluminum continues into the occupant cabin. The IP (instrument panel) has four prominent circular gauges including a multi-function LED display, a mechanical speedometer with an odometer inset; a unique mechanical tachometer which displays the revolutions per minute (RPM) of the drive motors; and a mechanical battery level indicator.”
The company has been named after Robert Bollinger, CEO and founder of the brand, and he seems to have opted for a clean, utilitarian design – albeit with premium features – just like another recent arrival on the electric scene – the Workhorse W-15 plug-in hybrid truck, which is aimed at fleets and professionals and delivers 80 miles (129 kilometers) of electric range. “I wanted the interior to have an uncomplicated design that was in keeping with the exterior. With simple mechanical gauges and displays, flat dash panels, a tall roof and tons of glass, we want you to look out at nature and not at a huge computer screen in the middle of the dash.”
