There is no denying that we are moving into an electrified future. Legacy automakers seem to be supported daily by electric vehicle (EV) startups, especially in the truck and full-size SUV segments. We like what we see, especially when you consider the power and torque of this new generation of vehicles. The release dates are mostly preliminary, but here’s what we know now.


Bollinger B1 SUV (starting at $ 125,000)

What the B1 lacks in style it makes up for in performance. The more functional looking Bollinger B1 is likely to be heavily chosen by well-heeled customers who customize the vehicle to their liking. The B1’s twin engines deliver 614 horsepower and 668 lb-ft of torque in an all-wheel drive configuration. The power comes from a 142 kWh battery, which offers a range of around 200 miles. The B1 has 15 inches of ground clearance and a towing capacity of 7,500 pounds. Available from 2022.

Bollinger B2 Truck (starting at $ 125,000)

The Bollinger B2 is the pickup sibling of the B1. It includes two engines that also produce 614 horsepower and 668 lb-ft of torque in the AWD. The B2 uses the same 142 kWh battery as in the B1 SUV.

The pickup has a double cab with a 6-foot bed and 15 inches of ground clearance. It is capable of charging levels 1, 2 and 3, with the latter allowing a 75-minute quick charge. The range of the B2 is approximately 200 miles. Available from 2022.

Bollinger B2 Chass-E Cab (starting at $ 70,000)

Similar to the B2, it offers all the benefits of a chassis-cab configuration that can be adapted to the specific needs of the buyer. Available in rear- and all-wheel drive configurations, as well as a double rear-wheel configuration.


Ford F-150 Blitz (from $ 39,974)

2022 Ford F-150 Blitz The Ford F-150 Lightning, the first mass-produced electric pickup, looks like a traditional half-ton pickup, but runs on a completely new chassis that integrates the battery and motors. The base model offers 426 horsepower, a range of 230 miles and all-wheel drive as standard. The extended range model offers 563 horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque and up to 300 miles of range.

The Lightning is only available as a 4-door, 5-person double cabin configuration. Equipped with the Ford Intelligent Backup Power System and the 80 Ampere Ford Charging Station Pro, the Lightning can deliver up to 9.6 kW of energy after a power failure to supply a house with electricity for three days. The Lightning has a target payload of 2,000 pounds and a projected 10,000 pound towing capacity. Prices start under $ 40,000, with reservations accepted for deliveries in 2022.

General Motors

Chevrolet Silverado EV (from $ 50,000 – estimated)

Chevrolet Silverado 2020

Chevrolet’s new electric pickup, the Silverado EV, is powered by GM’s Ultium battery pack and is offered in a basic model for work fleets. We expect higher quality versions in the LT and High Country trim levels to follow. The Ultium battery system can be scaled as needed to provide up to 200 kWh and a range of 400 miles.

The Silverado EV will be built together with the GMC Hummer EV SUV and the Hummer EV Truck and will most likely have the same powertrain, i.e. three electric motors. All-wheel drive (AWD) will probably be standard. Full specifications will follow later. The Silverado EV will bow sometime in the 2023-2024 timeframe.

GMC Hummer EV Truck (starting at $ 79,995)

Offering impressive on- and off-road capabilities, the Hummer EV Truck comes with a 24-module Ultium battery pack with a range of more than 350 miles and three drive motors delivering 1,000 horsepower and an estimated torque of 11,500 lb-ft on the edition 1 model. Regular models offer 625 horsepower and 7,400 lb-ft of torque.

2022 GMC Hummer EV

One-pedal driving, rain on demand and CrabWalk capability are other outstanding features. The Hummer EV can use the fastest 350 kilowatt DC quick chargers in the industry to charge 100 miles in 10 minutes. An optional adaptive air suspension lifts the Hummer EV from its standard 10.1 inches of ground clearance to 15.9 inches. Available from 2024.

GMC Hummer EV SUV (starting at $ 79,995)

The 5-person SUV version of the new Hummer EV impresses with its own 24-module Ultium battery pack and a range of more than 350 kilometers. Three prime movers will produce 625 horsepower and up to 7,400 lb-ft of torque, while the Edition 1 model boosts up to 1,000 horsepower and an estimated 11,500 lb-ft of torque.

Like the truck, the SUV offers single-pedal driving and CrabWalk capability to move sideways out of tight spaces. Additionally, GM says the Hummer EV can use 350-kilowatt DC fast chargers and charge up to 100 miles in 10 minutes. The Hummer’s off-road capability takes advantage of the 10.1 inch to 15.9 inch ground clearance of the adaptive air suspension available. Available from 2024.


Lordstown Endurance (from $ 52,500)

After a controversial start, Lordstown Motors says it will offer the endurance pickup truck that uses an innovative hub motor design. Instead of using axle-mounted motors front and rear, electric motors built into each wheel hub drive the truck. The all-wheel drive offers a combined 600 horsepower and 2,000 to 4,400 lb-ft of torque. The Endurance can tow up to 7,500 pounds. The 109 kWh batteries can be charged on a quick charger for 30 to 90 minutes for a range of more than 250 miles. According to recent news reports, the company is struggling with funding. Production is unsafe at best.


Rivian R1T Truck (starting at $ 67,500)

Rivian is ready to launch the first electric pickup truck in North America and is about to sell its first units. It has a body shape and bed length with space for five passengers and storage space in the cabin and in the front trunk. The R1T is powered by four electric motors for e4WD and delivers 754 horsepower combined and 826 lb-ft of torque. The standard air suspension varies the ground clearance from 8.0 to 14.4 inches.

There are two available battery configurations: a 135 kWh bulk pack with a range of 300 miles and a 180 kWh max pack with more than 400 miles. The Max Pack delivers a time of 0-60 mph of 3 seconds. Additionally, the R1T has a payload capacity of 1,760 pounds and can pull up to 11,000 pounds. Next year, a less powerful and less expensive R1T with a 105 kWh battery and a range of 250 miles will debut. Available from summer 2021.

Rivian R1S SUV EV (starting at $ 70,000)

The 2022 R1S is the 5- or 7-person SUV version of the R1T truck. It offers three trims and three battery options. The only battery option for now is the 135 kWh device with a range of 300 miles. Standard battery power will later come from a 105 kWh battery with a range of 250 miles, while an optional 180 kWh battery is available that can carry you up to 400 miles.

The total output of the four electric motors is 754 hp and 826 lb-ft of torque. The 180 kWh package gets you from 0 to 100 km / h in 3 seconds and can pull up to 7,700 pounds. Like the R1T, the R1S uses its own electric motor on each wheel and has advanced air suspension that can vary the ride height from 8.1 to 14.2 inches. Delivery will start in summer 2021.


Tesla Cybertruck (from $ 39,000)

Tesla Cybertruck

All-new, the Tesla Cybertruck features a bold look, ultra-hard, cold-rolled stainless steel construction, three engines that provide four-wheel drive, and a range of up to 500 miles on a single charge.
