[Video] Bollinger claims world first with all-electric sports truck chassis image

New York-based Bollinger Motors is going to reveal its all-new all-electric, on and off road, sport utility truck sometime this summer, but before that happens we catch a glimpse of the platform.

The company is looking to make a name for itself in the electric segment by being the first to arrive on the market with an all-electric pickup truck, ahead of Tesla’s own possible model in the segment. And this time around, they presented not the full vehicle, but the chassis itself. It’s a 295-pound all-aluminum chassis with a high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) steel rollover structure for increased off-road durability. The wheelbase comes in at 105 inches, with a front and rear track of 68 inches. Its approach angle is 56 degrees, with a departure angle of 33 degrees and the base setup also comes with 15.5 inches of ground clearance, which is adjustable because the truck will feature a four-wheel independent, self-leveling, hydro-pneumatic suspension.

High offset aluminum wheels will be equipped with Mud Terrain LT285/70/R17 tires and the wheels can be raised on the chassis, via eight lugs to knuckle housed, geared axle hubs. Four-piston calipers, and 11.75-inch vented inboard discs form the regenerative braking system. Bollinger Motors appeared back in 2014, in Hobart, NY, and they are looking to deliver an all-electric, medium-duty pickup truck with “revolutionary storage and hauling capabilities,” “second-to-none on and off road capabilities,” and “best-in-class ground clearance, torque and traction.”
