While many are looking forward to Tesla and Ford's plans to build electric-powered SUVs, but a startup electric vehicle manufacturer called Bollinger Motors has just launched their first electric-powered SUV.

This SUV will display a modern and futuristic impression, because it has a glass roof that can be unloaded. Yes, as many as six sections of glass are can be arranged to form a roof and also can be removed (including side windows and rear glass with the exception of the windshield).

Durability Test: The sandbags, Karl & our TRC driver weighed 2360lbs. If you add the unladen weight of the truck front axle you get 5000lbs GAWR (Gross axle weight rating) which is the same front to rear for a GVWR of 10,000lbs. We only used that much weight for a steering test. pic.twitter.com/paihn7yt9F— Bollinger Motors (@bollingermotors) August 24, 2018
Charging times vary, with Level 3 charging requiring just two hours, but Bollinger claims that 120 kWh pack is large enough that you'd rarely need to fully deplete or fully recharge it. The B1 will also be approved for flat-towing, with the motors charging the batteries along the way. Bollinger B1 has a weight of about 1,770 kg and towing or load capacity about 2.767 kg, with dimensions of 3.81 m length, 1.8 m width, 1.87 m heigh and has a 50/50 weight distribution.
