Bollinger Motors isn’t your typical small electric vehicle manufacturer. A single look at their lineup is enough to tell you they aren’t from Silicon Valley, and that the team isn’t chasing performance figures with their efforts. Instead Bollinger builds the only Class 3 electric vehicles on the market, in pickup, SUV, and Chassis Cab form. In an effort to continue cornering the electric commercial segment, Bollinger Motors have just announced an all-new model: the Bollinger DELIVER-E van.
“We took our extensive Class 3 electrification knowledge and applied it to the delivery sector,” said Robert Bollinger, CEO of Bollinger Motors via the vehicle’s press release.“Our 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 DELIVER-E van is the fourth model to join the Bollinger Motors portfolio, and it joins the B2 Chassis Cab as their second commercial-oriented vehicle. The van is built on an all-new platform designed specifically to address the needs of a van driver, not the company’s existing E-Chassis. Major components like the motors, battery, inverters, and gearbox are shared with the rest of the Bollinger lineup, but the DELIVER-E van features a unique FWD-based architecture. Without the rear wheels being driven, the load floor at the rear of the van was able to be set at only 18-inches.
Unlike the rest of the Bollinger Motors lineup, the DELIVER-E van has been engineered to meet restrictions for Classes 2B, 3, 4, and 5. Buyers will also be able to customize their van’s wheelbase and battery pack to better fit their own needs. Bollinger says that 70, 105, 140, 175, and 210 kWh battery packs will be on offer. We don’t think those spiked lugs will make production, however.
Bollinger Motors stated that they will be working with a manufacturing partner to ensure the DELIVER-E van will be built here in the United States. As of now, production is expected to begin in 2022. There is no pricing information available at this time, but we don’t expect it to be cheap. The rest of the Bollinger Motors lineup hit the market with a base price of $125,000.
