EV orders pulled by Michigan truck firm

Staff, news services

The battery-powered Bollinger B2 pickup truck won't be seen on the road anytime soon. The Michigan-based startup said it is canceling consumer orders for its B2 pickup and B1 SUV in order to focus on its commercial truck business.

The $125,000 B1 and B2 were part of a squadron of EV offerings hitting the market from Rivian, GMC, Chevy, Ford, Tesla and Lordstown Motors.

The announcement is an indication the demand for EV trucks is in the commercial sector.
