Bollinger Motors, an all-electric vehicle company headquartered in Oak Park, today announced a postponement to its consumer-truck production and delivery while the company shifts its efforts to the commercial business.
The news was announced by founder and CEO Robert Bollinger in a video on the company’s YouTube and Instagram pages.
“We started Bollinger Motors in 2015 with a dream and a desire to make the best trucks possible,” says Bollinger. “We’ve put countless hours of hard work and passion into making something that makes us proud. However, today, we’re postponing the consumer trucks’ development and shifting our focus to commercial trucks and fleets.”
Bollinger will refund deposits for those who’d previously reserved the electric B1 sport utility truck and the B2 pickup truck.
“This is a vitally important move for us, because it enables us to continue our development of our technology and make a real impact in the green future of automotive,” says Bollinger. “I am so grateful for all the support and dedication from everyone who follows us on social media, has signed up for our newsletter, and has reserved a truck.”
The move will enable Bollinger Motors to continue to grow and develop technology for commercial vehicles in Classes 3 through 6, specifically, the manufacturing of all-electric platforms and chassis cabs.
