Budding U.S. car manufacturer Bollinger Motors has revealed the release schedule for its B1 SUV and B2 pickup truck. Both all-electric vehicles will celebrate their international premiere on September 26 and enter production in summer 2020.

Bollinger Motors had initially planned to start assembling the B1 series this summer, but missed the deadline due to some last-minute design changes. For instance, while the concept version of the SUV had three doors, the final production version has five.

The off-roader is 4,356 millimeters (14.3 feet) long and has 3,018 mm (9.9 ft.) between the axles. The pickup is longer at 5,270 mm (17.3 ft.) and sports a wheelbase spanning 3,531 mm (11.58 ft.). Both offer seats for four people and can carry up to 2,268 kilograms (5,000 lbs) of weight.

Powering the vehicles are two electric engines jointly rated at 622 hp (464 kW) and 905 Nm (667 lb-ft) of torque. A 120 kWh lithium-ion battery provides enough power for up to 200 miles (320 kilometers) of EPA-rated range. Both the SUV and the truck sprint from zero to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.5 seconds and max out at 100 mph (160 km/h).

Other noteworthy features include removable see-through roof panels, detachable windshield and doors, and double-wishbone suspension on both axles. The equipment list includes an audio system, heated seats, and an air conditioner.

Nice as all of the above might sound, the safety seems to be a serious concern in both the Bollinger B1 and B2. There are no passive safety systems provided except for the basic seat belts, and the cabin design is just as angular as the exterior, which could lead to severe injury in a road accident. Collisions with pedestrians may also have particularly grim consequences. Then again, maybe the company doesn’t even intend to make its vehicles fully road-legal. We hope to learn more on September 26.

Restomodding is an extremely expensive and time-consuming hobby. Simply restoring a vintage car may easily cost you tens of thousands of dollars, and the amount rapidly plunges into six-digit territory with such extras as engine swapping or deep styling. On the other hand, you get the media talking about you non-stop, and it counts.
