Bollinger Motors received 10,000 pre-orders for their B1 all-electric sport utility truck in 60 days, representing hundreds of millions of dollars in potential revenue for the company from eventual vehicles sales. Fleet orders are not included in that number as those are not being taken until pricing is announced.
"I can't believe we've reached this number of reservations so quickly," said Robert Bollinger, CEO. "I think we really built something unique. A lot of people from all over the US and the world want a tough, capable truck that's also electric and we can't wait to start production."
The company also announced that the Bollinger B1 will make its industry debut at the Specialty Equipment Manufacturer's Association (SEMA) show which runs from October 31 through November 3 in Las Vegas. Attendees are encouraged to stop by their booth #51127 in the Performance Pavilion.
