American automaker Bollinger has announced its next concept – the Deliver-E electric cargo minivan, intended for delivery services.
In fact, the model is a modular constructor, from which each customer will be able to assemble a suitable option for him. On a front-wheel drive platform with an electric motor of unnamed power, you can assemble a truck in the Class 2B, 3, 4, 5 format thanks to the ability to use different wheelbases. The cargo box features a flat and low floor – the sill is only 45 cm (18 inches) off the ground for easy loading and unloading.
The aerodynamic body allows for a longer range, while depending on the typical delivery route, the customer can choose a battery of 70, 105, 140, 175 or 210 kWh. The power reserve will depend on the load, but the manufacturer has promised support for high-speed charging with a capacity of 100 kW.
Recall that in the spring, Bollinger introduced the patented modular skateboard platform E-Chassis, which can be used to create commercial electric vehicles of almost any kind. According to the creators, this platform will be used not only in the two announced (the Bollinger B1 electric crossover and the Bollinger B2 electric pickup), but also in other future models of the brand.
The company is expected to begin production of the Bollinger B1 electric crossover and the Bollinger B2 electric pickup in 2021, and the Deliver-E delivery van in 2022. Note that electric vehicles of this kind in the near future will be extremely in demand on the market – companies such as Amazon and UPS are already actively interested in them.
