Bollinger Motors reveals B4 Class 4 electric truck

Bollinger Motors announced its Class 4 all-electric fleet truck, the Bollinger B4, featuring a cab-forward design.

The Bollinger B4 is driven by a solid rear-axle e-drive to meet demand for higher payloads. High-voltage components operate on an 800-volt platform, with batteries consisting of LFP (lithium iron phosphate) chemistry. Customers may outfit their B4s with either one or two battery packs to accommodate cost and range requirements. Range estimates are roughly 100 miles per battery pack.

“The cab-forward design also increases both overall cargo space behind the cab and critical downward visibility in front,” says Kent Harrison, chief product officer of Bollinger Motors. “The B4’s 41-ft. turning circle will be better than any comparable wheelbase truck, which will improve driving dynamics in both
rural and urban settings.”

Bollinger Motors says it will track test B4 chassis cab trucks this fall with numerous fleet customers, upfitters, and charging companies to gather constructive feedback.

Bollinger will begin production with Class 4 Chassis Cabs, with Class 5 and Class 6 trucks to follow. The price and release date for the B4 chassis cabs will be announced at a later date.
