Upstate New York-based electric SUV startup Bollinger Motors introduces its battery-powered B1 off-roader, a rugged and heavy-duty truck design that almost mimics a Humvee or Jeep Wrangler.

Essentially dubbed as the world’s first all-electric sport utility truck, the B1 was initially introduced this past July at the Classic Car Club of Manhattan in New York City.

Able to travel a range of 120 to 200 miles, depending on its battery size, the vehicle is also equipped with two electric motors that delivers four-wheel-drive. The simplistic boxy bodywork and interior made of aluminum is designed for easy manufacturing and simple repairs, while a steel roll cage provides added safety.

Additionally, the B1 can accelerate to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and boasts a hydraulic suspension system that can be raised to give it 20 inches of ground clearance. While its release date and final pricing has not been confirmed yet, Bollinger suggests that in can be in full production by 2019 and possibly costing in the price range of about $60,000 USD to $80,000 USD.
