Bollinger Motors has unveiled its Deliver-E all-electric delivery van concept. The Deliver-E uses the engineering, technology, and components used in the company's product portfolio to deploy an electric van suited to the delivery market.
"We took our extensive Class 3 electrification knowledge and applied it to the delivery sector," said Robert Bollinger, CEO of Bollinger Motors. "Our Deliver-E van gives commercial fleets the power to go green and save on ownership costs, while neighborhoods will benefit from a reduction in air and noise pollution."
The front-wheel drive, all-electric Deliver-E platform will be engineered to fit Classes 2B, 3, 4, and 5. The total cost of ownership within each class, according to Bollinger, is significantly lower than gasoline and diesel versions on the road today.
A wide selection of battery packs will be available, including 70, 105, 140, 175, and 210 kWh. Coupled with variable wheelbase lengths, the fleet customer will have a wide array of mileage range and price options to fit their specific needs.
Deliver-E employs the same major components — including motors, battery, inverters, and gearboxes — as the rest of the Bollinger Motors lineup, and is based on a new platform created to address the specific needs of delivery vans.
Features of the Deliver-E include:
- Low-load floor height: 18 inches.
- Variable wheelbases, to accommodate multiple cargo configurations.
- Scalability to a variety of vehicle classes, including Class 2B, Class 3, Class 4, and Class 5.
- Choice between battery sizes, including 70, 105, 140, 175, and 210 kWh.
- High-strength steel frame, designed to a 10-year durability target.
Bollinger Motors will work with a manufacturing partner to build the Deliver-E vans and trucks in the US. Production is slated for 2022.
