Bollinger Motors announced a strategic collaboration with EAVX to develop electric work trucks that integrate EAVX’s commercial work-truck bodies and accessories with Bollinger’s electric vehicle platforms, according to the company's press release.
The terms of the collaboration will allow Bollinger and EAVX to design fully integrated electric vehicles for a variety of commercial applications, as well as coordinate offerings related to vehicle sales, after-sales parts, and vehicle servicing.
Bollinger Motors said it is developing an all-electric platform and chassis cab for various applications in Class 3-6 vehicles, offering adaptable battery solutions to accommodate large payloads, sufficient range, and long-life durability.
“Electrifying commercial fleets reduces costs, increases reliability, and ensures the fleets will comply with forthcoming government mandates,” said Robert Bollinger, founder and CEO of Bollinger Motors. “Working with EAVX will allow us to offer our innovative all-electric solutions to a broader market of commercial customers and accelerate EV adoption across the country.”
EAVX is a business unit of JB Poindexter & Co, and it partners with electric and alternative power-chassis producers to design, manufacture, distribute, and service the world’s largest commercial fleets and markets.
“We have a proven history of creating excellent work truck and commercial vehicle bodies and accessories, and we are now expanding our capabilities to provide alternative energy vehicles through this partnership with Bollinger Motors,” said John B Poindexter, CEO and chairman, JB Poindexter & Co.
Bollinger Motors is an all-electric truck company headquartered in Oak Park, Michigan.
“Partnering with Bollinger allows EAVX to continue our holistic approach to integration of systems between the cab-chassis and the body,” said Mark Hope, EAVX chief operating officer and general manager.
