This is something I can get behind.

Specifications given for the prototype cite two battery options: a 60-kilowatt-hour base pack, and an optional longer-range 100-kwh pack.

The smaller pack is estimated to deliver a range of about 120 miles in what is hardly a wind-cheating shape, while the larger one should come in around 200 miles.

Total output for the two motors together is 270 kilowatts (360 horsepower), but a substantial 472 lb-ft of torque—which should be enough to get the 3,900-pound four-seat truck out of most situations, especially with a cited 0-to-60-mph acceleration time of just 4.5 seconds.

Payload is rated at 6,100 pounds, and the wheels are only 17-inch alloys, their size expanded by the giant knobbly treaded off-road tires that give the 150-inch-long utility truck such visual presence.

The frame and platform of the B1 electric truck is constructed of aluminum, as are the body panels, with the frame for the cabin made of high-strength steel

The truck has a standard 240-volt Level 2 charging port on its left-front fender, and for the moment, a CHAdeMO DC quick-charging port on the right-front fender.

The minimalist interior, by design, features four circular gauges and a dashboard designed to accept drilling for custom-fitted instruments, accessories, and tools.

Manufacturing can be a problematic process — just ask Tesla. And since Bollinger Motors isn’t doing that part of the work itself, a lot is riding on whether or not it can land a manufacturing deal with the right partner. And in the meantime, a startup like Bollinger Motors could easily be outmuscled by one of the many OEMs that have pledged to push their fleets toward electric power, should one choose to train its sights on this part of the market.

But before Bollinger Motors gets the B1 certified and finds a production partner, it will start testing out the desirability of the truck by taking reservations on its website. That process is free for now, but reservation holders will have to put in their official orders with a $1,000 down payment in early 2018 or give up their spot in line. If and when the company can find a manufacturing partner, the plan is to deliver the first B1s about 19 months after the start of production, with the end goal of opening up dedicated retail stores.

That alone might be the B1’s biggest challenge: holding people’s attention until the B1 rolls off the line. The idea of an all-electric, all-terrain truck with great range and abundant utility is tantalizing now, but it’s hard to say whether the B1 will still stand out in two or more years. The roiling automotive market has swallowed plenty of great ideas in the past — why should Bollinger’s be any different?

When I get mine...I'll answer that question...:)

All-electric is worthless in remote forests, unless this thing comes with a huge, biggley solar panel.
Absolutely...but on a farm, even a big one, it will work quite well...:)
