Bollinger Motors, the start up electric vehicle company that makes an electric pickup truck and an electric SUV that are almost caricatures of ruggedness, wants to leverage is electric powertrain prowess to offer electric delivery vans as well.
In a press release, the company says it can build Class 2B, Class 3, Class 4, and Class 5 trucks with a number of wheelbase configurations using its all-electric skateboard design.
It also says it can offer customers a choice of 70, 105, 140, 175, or 210 kWh batteries depending on the amount of range and cargo carrying capacity the customer prefers.
One of the things truck makers are more conscious of today is making the work environment more comfortable for the drivers who may clamber in and out of delivery vehicles up to 100 times a day.
That makes low cargo floors a priority. Bollinger says its delivery vans will have a cargo floor that is only 18″ higher than the roads they travel on.
That means less lifting and bending for drivers.
Bollinger Motors, “DELIVER-E™” van gives commercial fleets the power to go green and save on ownership costs, while neighborhoods will benefit from a reduction in air and noise pollution.
The Bollinger vans will be front wheel drive vehicles that come standard with anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control, and electronic traction control.
Charging speeds up to 100 kW will be available.
They will feature independent front and rear suspensions and the least intrusion of rear wheel wells into the cargo area of any comparable van.
