Charging concerns, battery technology, and mistrust of brand-new tech aside, I love the idea of EVs.
But I like trucks and off-roaders. Instant torque, lack of engine noise, and expanded storage are all aspect of an EV that I have been waiting for, along with body lines that I could actually fall in love with. For reference, I’ve always loved the look of the older classic 4x4s: the wrangler, the old land cruiser, the scout, the bronco, the K5 blazer, the defender, the c10 and w200 pickups…
This morning I found out about Bollinger Motors’ B1 and B2 electric 4x4s.
Of course I probably won’t be able to afford one/justify the price to actually go bash one around in the woods… (i remember my hesitation to push limits with a shiny new wrangler, which was probably not even half the price of one of these) but it’s nice to see that the daydream is a little closer to reality. If they do well enough, maybe I’ll be able to get ahold of a used one in like ten years.
