New Delhi: Michigan-based startup Bollinger Motors has recently showcased its first electric platform and chassis for commercial vehicles.
The platform named ‘E-Chassis’ is the world’s first and only Class 3 electric platform which has been designed to offer a high level of utility for the commercial electric truck market, according to the company.
The entire platform is now patent-pending and can accommodate any future models developed by Bollinger Motors.
“The E-Chassis can be customized to meet customer requests and will include a 120 kWh battery pack as standard equipment. An optional 180 kWh battery pack will also be available,” the company said in a release.
Besides, Bollinger E-Chassis is also equipped with electronic stability control, electronic traction control, a hydro-pneumatic self-leveling suspension system, and a 5-15 kW onboard charger/inverter.
As per the company, the platform can be lengthened or shortened to suit the needs of individual customers.
“The E-Chassis will be built alongside its B1 and B2 vehicles at its factory in Michigan and will be available to commercial customers in 2021,” the company added.
Commenting on the unveiling CEO Robert Bollinger said “When we first built our Class 3 B1, we knew there was a commercial aspect to the platform. Not only cab-on-chassis, but entirely new truck bodies can fit on our E-Chassis, and help propel the world to all-electric that much faster.”
At present, Bollinger’s B1 SUV and the B2 Pickup are sharing the same E-Chassis platform. The entire platform is now patent-pending and can accommodate future models and other trucks developed by Bollinger Motors, the company said.
