Bollinger Motors has unveiled a patent-pending E-Chassis Class 3 electric platform, designed with commercial applications in mind.
The patent-pending E-Chassis is the same platform shared with the company’s B1 sport utility truck and B2 pickup. Bollinger Motors will manufacture the E-Chassis alongside the B1 and B2 trucks and will be available for commercial use in 2021, according to the company.
This E-Chassis will also accommodate future models and other trucks developed by Bollinger Motors.
"When we first built our Class 3 B1, we knew there was a commercial aspect to the platform," says CEO Robert Bollinger. "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."
