Bollinger Electric Vehicles
Bollinger Motors started in 2014 out of a renovated car-repair shop. The
start-up is led by Robert Bollinger, an entrepreneur with no previous
auto experience. Robert’s résumé includes an organic hair- and skin-care
business. The company’s goal is to be a leader in electric utility and
sports vehicles by developing the world’s first all-electric truck. It
is unclear where the funding for the company is coming from as it is not
actively looking for outside funding. Bollinger set an aggressive
timeline and hope to unveil the vehicle in July 2017.
