As the technology driving the EV sector continues to evolve, proton-powered systems are increasingly permeating each segment of the automotive industry, with the latest chapter in the electric revolution being that of the all-electric workhorse. With an unprecedented amount of torque and an increasingly accessible price-point, electric pickups, trucks, cargo vans, and other industrial vehicle makes have been experimenting with EV powertrains, such as Michigan’s Bollinger Motors, which has been showing off its modular electric vehicle platform over the last few years.
After unveiling its Defender-inspired B1 and B2 models, the Oak Park outfit has now pulled the cover off of an even more utilitarian ride with its Deliver-E electric cargo van. Designed to replace existing fleets of gas-powered medium-duty models, the Deliver-E’s a modular vehicle with variable wheelbase lengths and 70, 105, 140, 175, and 210kWh battery options. Offering a markedly lower total cost of ownership (or “TCO”) compared to petrol-powered vehicles, the van has an extremely low floor with an industry-best 18” step-in height. DC Fast Charging compatible, the Deliver-E sports hydraulic steering and brake and independent front and rear suspension, too. Pricing hasn’t been revealed, though Bollinger says production is slated to begin in 2022. For more info, check out the link below.
