Oak Park, Michigan-based Bollinger Motors has announced that it's upcoming all-electric B4 chassis cab has received its Certificate of Conformity by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This vital step means the purely battery-powered Class 4 cabover semi is a significant step closer to beginning customer deliveries, which are slated to get underway in the second half of this year.

The Certificate of Conformity is exactly that. It certifies that the Bollinger B4 conforms to all EPA emissions requirements.

“This is a huge step for us in becoming the leader in all-electric commercial trucks,” said Robert Bollinger, founder and CEO of Bollinger Motors. “We are proud that the Bollinger B4 is engineered and assembled right here in Michigan with 70% American-made content.”

The B4 was designed and built from the ground-up with substantial fleet and upfitter input. From the get-go, it was designed and engineered to be an electric vehicle as opposed to being heavily modified from an existing ICE design. It can be customized by fleets to meet their requirements. In addition, its unobstructed frame rails enable easy mounting and upfit adaption, while the chassis design protects the 800V battery pack and other vital components. 

Last spring, the company revealed that Syncron Warranty will be its sole warranty provider. In addition, Bollinger earned IRS approval in February as a “qualified manufacturer” for clean vehicle credits under the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022.

Clean Trucking had the opportunity to get behind the wheel for a brief test drive at the 2024 ACT Expo. Despite the limited time allocated, we came away impressed with the B4's smooth and quick acceleration, quiet cabin, and easy-to-drive nature.
