DETROIT, Michigan – Bollinger Motors has unveiled an all-electric delivery van concept, the Deliver-E.

The front-wheel drive, all-electric Deliver-E platform will be engineered to fit Classes 2B, 3, 4, and 5.

A wide selection of battery packs will be available, including 70, 105, 140, 175, and 210 kWh. Coupled with variable wheelbase lengths, the fleet customer will have a wide array of mileage range and price options to fit their specific needs.

“We took our extensive Class 3 electrification knowledge and applied it to the delivery sector,” said Robert Bollinger, CEO of Bollinger Motors.

“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.”

Deliver-E employs the same major components — including motors, battery, inverters, and gearboxes — as the rest of the Bollinger Motors lineup, and is based on a new platform created to address the specific needs of delivery vans.The Deliver-E will have a low, 18-inch load floor height, and a variety of wheelbases, to accommodate multiple cargo configurations. The high-strength steel frame is designed for a 10-year durability target.

Bollinger Motors will work with a manufacturing partner to build the Deliver-E vans and trucks in the U.S. Production is slated for 2022.

Founded in 2015 by Robert Bollinger, Bollinger Motors is a U.S.-based company, headquartered in Oak Park, Michigan.

Bollinger Motors will manufacture the world’s first all-electric, on- and off-road trucks, the B1 Sport Utility Truck (SUT) and the B2 Pickup Truck. Its first prototype, the two-door B1, unveiled in 2017, is displayed at The Peterson Museum in Los Angeles, as part of the ‘Alternating Currents’ exhibit. The B1 and B2 trucks may be reserved with a $1,000 deposit.
