Bollinger Motors has announced a follow up to its all-electric B1 SUV, a pickup truck called the B2, which will offer about three extra feet of storage space in the bed. Bollinger is a New York-based electric vehicle (EV) startup. The company released renderings and additional details of its second model.

The B2 will feature the same specs as the B1, meaning it will be powered with a 120-kWh battery pack lasting for about 120 to 200 miles. Dual motors on each axle combine for around 360 horsepower, and 472 lb.-ft. of torque. According to Green Car Reports, the trucks are expected to include fast charging, but how fast is not clear. Bollinger’s B1 SUV and B2 pickup have also been enlarged to 4-door body-styles.

The B2 will use the same basic Citroen-like hydro-pneumatic suspension and in-wheel portal-gear hubs to increase ground clearance, and have a payload rating of 5,000 pounds. The four-door B2 pickup bed can carry up to 72 sheets of 4x8-foot plywood.

Bollinger says the bed measures 69 inches long by 49 inches wide inside, making it a little longer than most short-bed, full sized four-door pickups. The rear window will open into the cab to allow longer cargo to fit partially inside if drivers choose. Renderings of the B2 also show what appears to be a mid-gate design allowing extra-long cargo to pass through to a storage area under the hood.
