Bollinger Motors, an electric truck company in Oak Park, is collaborating with EAVX in Ann Arbor to develop all-electric commercial trucks.
The combination will produce vehicles that integrate EAVX’s commercial work-truck bodies and accessories with Bollinger’s electric vehicle platforms, according to the companies.
The terms of the collaboration will allow Bollinger and EAVX to design fully integrated electric vehicles for a wide variety of commercial applications, as well as coordinate offerings related to vehicle sales, after-sales parts, and vehicle servicing.
Bollinger Motors is developing an all-electric platform and chassis cab for various applications in class 3-6 vehicles, offering adaptable battery solutions to accommodate large payloads, sufficient range, and long-life durability.
“Electrifying commercial fleets reduces costs, increases reliability, and ensures the fleets will comply with forthcoming government mandates,” says Robert Bollinger, founder and CEO of Bollinger Motors. “Working with EAVX will allow us to offer our innovative all-electric solutions to a broader market of commercial customers and accelerate EV adoption across the country.”
EAVX, the newest business unit of JB Poindexter & Co., partners with electric and alternative power-chassis producers to design, manufacture, distribute, and service what it calls the world’s largest commercial fleets and markets.
“We have a proven history of creating excellent work truck and commercial vehicle bodies and accessories, and we are now expanding our capabilities to provide alternative energy vehicles through this partnership with Bollinger Motors,” says John B Poindexter, CEO and chairman of JB Poindexter & Co.
