Bollinger Motors has received IRS approval as a “qualified manufacturer” for clean vehicle credits under the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022.

This designation enables the Bollinger B4 chassis cab to qualify for the IRA’s new credit for qualified commercial clean vehicles, providing eligible purchasers a tax credit of up to $40,000 per vehicle.

“Bollinger Motors is poised for growth and we’re ready to help electrify America’s fleets,” says Robert Bollinger, founder and CEO of Bollinger Motors. “These tax credits are an important incentive for our customers to replace their gas and diesel trucks and lower their total cost of ownership.”

Bollinger Motors says businesses and tax-exempt organizations that buy a qualified commercial clean vehicle may qualify for a clean vehicle tax credit of up to $40,000 under Section 45W of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC). The company says the credit equals the lesser of:

  • 15% of the purchaser’s basis in the vehicle (30% if the vehicle is not powered by gas or diesel)
  • The incremental cost of the vehicle versus a comparable vehicle with a gas or diesel engine

The Bollinger B4, with a GVWR of 15,500 lb., is expected to qualify for the full eligible tax credit of $40,000. The company anticipates deliveries of the Bollinger B4 chassis cab to begin in the second half of 2024.
