For those looking for a no-fluff, pure utilitarian BEV pickup, via GCC:
Bollinger Motors previews B2 electric pickup

Bollinger also has a B1 SUV with the same drivetrain components. Who knows if they'll make it to production, but I like working vehicles like this (I've always been partial to old Land Rovers and VW Things, or as they were known in WW2, Kubelwagens and I thought the plastic (similar to if not actually Lexan) body panels of the Norwegian Think urban car were a brilliant way to defeat the best efforts of errant shopping carts and incautious doors openers to put dings in them).

The 'best' is the enemy of 'good enough'. Copper shot, not Silver bullets.

I really like the original two door B2. I'm not such a big fan of the four-door that they're planning on sending into production. And the truck I really don't like. But I can see that there's probably a lot of customers that like the four-door and the truck.

I wish them success in the market.
