Bollinger EV Truck – 15.5 Inches Ground Clearance, 56 Degree Approach Angle

Full Independent Suspension, 10 Inches Wheel Travel Also Claimed




Bollinger EV Truck – 15.5 Inches Ground Clearance, 56 Degree Approach Angle
Startup independent vehicle manufacturer Bollinger Motors has released new details on its forthcoming all-electric sport-utility truck. The chassis will be primarily aluminum, augmented by a high-strength steel “rollover structure.” Although rated at more than 8,600 GVWR to ease crash test certification requirements, the overall package appears to be remarkably compact. With a front and rear track of 68 inches and a wheelbase of 105 inches, the Bollinger will be slightly larger than a two-door Jeep Wrangler JK, which has a front and rear track of 61.9 inches, and a wheelbase of 95.4 inches. A Wrangler Unlimited has the same track as the two-door but has a 116-inch wheelbase.

Bollinger claims the vehicle will sport a substantial 15.5 inches of ground clearance, a four-wheel hydro-pneumatic independent suspension with 10 inches of wheel travel, an approach angle of 56 degrees, and a departure angle 53 degrees. Breakover angle is a claimed 33 degrees. All of these measurements are substantially higher than a stock JK Wrangler. The suspension A-arms will be made from high-strength steel for durability when off-roading, and taking a cue from the Wrangler Rubicon playbook, the suspension will feature disconnectable sway bars for added articulation when off-roading.

As we reported last month, we already discovered from one of Bollinger’s YouTube videos that the forthcoming vehicle will also have a portal axle arrangement, facilitating its massive ground clearance. Sure to get a thumbs-up from off-road enthusiasts as well are 285/70R-17 BFGoodrich Mud-Terrains that are installed on the prototype chassis. Look for a full report on Bollinger’s electric off-roader in the months ahead on TruckTrend.com!
