Bollinger Motors has begun design validation pilot builds of its B4 electric Class 4 chassis cabs for testing and demonstration. Manufacturing of the pilot vehicles kicked off in partnership with Roush Industries at its facility in Livonia, Michigan. The first 5 completed chassis cabs are expected to roll out this summer, and at least 15 more are to be completed by the end of Q3 2023.
Bollinger will be offering demos of its initial pilot builds in September at Mcity, a demonstration and testing facility on the University of Michigan’s North Campus in Ann Arbor, for invited key prospects and partners. In preparation for that event, Bollinger has engaged multiple upfitting partners to prepare the chassis cabs for a variety of options to meet the needs of potential fleet customers.
“Our Class 4 Bollinger B4 truck was purpose-built for fleets, and it gives them unlimited upfit options,” said Chief Revenue Officer Jim Connelly. “Our nationwide service network will be announced soon.”
“Bollinger Motors has over eight years of experience in developing, producing, and testing electric trucks,” said CEO Robert Bollinger. “I’m excited to see our hard work come together in the B4 and to keep hitting our milestones.”
The Bollinger B4 will be eligible for a federal purchase incentive of 30% of the cost of the vehicle, up to a total of $40,000. Deliveries are expected to begin in July 2024.
