Sailing provides a silence and serenity that has captured the imagination of adventurers for centuries. As the craft moves silently across the sea, humans feel connected to nature, like seagulls gliding on the wind. Land “cruisers” may soon have a similar experience as The Bollinger B1 Electric Vehicle comes to fruition.
Sound of Silence
Imagine the ability to travel down logging roads and two-tracks with only the sound of wheels on the ground. For years, quad manufacturers have touted the ability to cruise silently through hunting terrain, yet those vehicles have limited travel abilities and are often not legal for highway use. This new, all-electric, all-wheel-drive vehicle will function much lake an SUV carrying humans and cargo all the way to deer camp and beyond.
Here’s the Latest
The Gear Junkie website gave this vehicles a top award and posts the details on its website:
With up to 200 miles of range, the Bollinger B1 all-electric, all-wheel-drive sport utility truck is ready to haul you, your friends, and gear to your favorite adventure destinations.
With a claimed 0-60 time of only 4.5 seconds (and a top speed of 127 mph), it won’t take long to get there! The 3-box shape is reminiscent of the classic Land Rover Defender.
However, besides that basic silhouette, some serious off-road capability, and the use of a lot of aluminum in its construction, the two vehicles have little in common.The Bollinger B1 can haul or tow up to 6,100 lbs. of cargo, which equates to a LOT of adventure and camping gear. Compare that to the measly maximum of 1,620 lb. load capacity of the Toyota Tacoma.
