Bollinger B1 Production Design of revealed

Bollinger B1 3/4 shot

If there’s one truck besides the GMC HUMMER, that we are looking forward to it is this one. The team behind the Bollinger B1 production design have revealed their enhancements and almost finishing touches. This mad beast which is pretty much what the Defender is to Landrover, old-school tough capability brought forward with modern technology. The B1 will hit the roads with 614 HP and 668 ft-lb of torque, while achieving approximately 322 km of range per full-charge. While that is considerably less than what GMC claims for their HUMMER 2021, we are not bothered due to its bloody good looks. So, what did the team do? Basically, they gave more space, and refined looks to the beast.

The company raised the beltline of the truck to allow more packaging space for components under the frunk, but ultimately raised the overall head space for occupants. This impacted the exterior design by keeping majority of the visual weight below the beltline, showing off a more stable and sturdy appearance.

The major change that drove the Bollinger B1 Production Design exterior adjustments comes from their breakthrough thermal management. They were able to reduce the overall radiator size and utilize one slim cooling unit behind the bumper where it gets in more air. The dual, top mounted radiators then became obsolete, which gave the designers more freedom to widen the frunk considerably. The headlights then had space to move outboard, creating a similar mounting strategy as the rear lights, making it feel more symmetric.

Rear passengers have better entrance and exit as the B-pillar was moved forward. This however made sliding window cassettes less effective, so they went old school and opted for manual crank windows – which still fits the overall feel of the beast. With more space came bigger glass – so the windshield, side and rear glass all grew taller, helping out with the headspace clearance.
