The future of package delivery might soon become whisper-silent and all-electric.
Bollinger Motors, the company behind the Tesla Cybertruck-challenging, all-electric and all-wheel drive B1 sport-utility truck and B2 pickup truck, unveiled the Deliver-e delivery van concept on Thursday. Like the B1 and B2, the Deliver-e also exclusively runs on battery-electric power.
The Deliver-e uses a front-wheel-drive platform. Bollinger Motors has plans to engineer it to meet Class 2B, 3, 4, and 5 truck classifications. The company says that the total cost of ownership for each class is “significantly lower than gas and diesel versions on the road today,” according to an emailed press release.
The Deliver-e concept follows Amazon’s announcement in February that it had ordered 100,000 custom delivery vehicles from Rivian, another EV startup. Additionally, Business Insider reported on Friday that Amazon has also just ordered 1,800 electric delivery vans from Mercedes-Benz for European deliveries.
All-electric delivery vehicles are a nice idea. They would cut down on neighbourhood noise and pollution levels if successfully implemented.

The Deliver-e is an all-electric delivery van concept from Bollinger Motors, the company responsible for the Cybertruck-challenging B1 and B2.
The Deliver-e will be front-wheel drive and designed to meet Class 2B, 3, 4, and 5 truck classifications.
Bollinger says 70, 105, 140, 175, and 210 kWh battery packs will be available, as well as variable lengths in the wheelbase.
With a floor height of 18 inches, loading cargo in the Deliver-e should be a breeze.
The production version of the delivery van will have a high-strength steel frame with a 10-year durability target.
CEO Robert Bollinger told Business Insider, “We’ve already accepted custom specs from several prospective customers, and are in the process of developing proposals for how the Deliver-e can be built to their needs.”
Bollinger says it’s working with a manufacturing partner to build the Deliver-e in the US.
Deliver-e production is scheduled for 2022. No pricing was announced at this time.
