While it’s not unheard of for carmakers to collaborate—
Subaru and Toyota
have often teamed up in the past to make some truly cool vehicles—two relatively unknown automakers have recently stepped up to the plate. Bollinger Motors and Roush Performance have come together to start making
EVs
Even though you may have never heard of either of these companies, you might just start seeing their vehicles on the interstate near you. And regardless of whether you drive an EV or a gas-powered vehicle, there’s no reason to pay for
overpriced insurance

Who are Bollinger and Roush?

Bollinger Motors and Roush Performance aren’t familiar names to most of us. According to
World News Era
, they won’t be making the personal use EVs that most of us are used to. They’ll be producing commercial EVs, specifically Class 3 to Class 6 size vehicles, as they try to push their way into commercialization of larger-sized
commercial trucks
. 
However, they’ll only be producing the electric truck’s chassis, which will then be sold to various companies who will furnish the rest of the car from there. 

What are other car companies doing to commercialize EVs?

Bollinger and Roush aren’t the only ones trying to get a leg up in the EV commercial truck world. Rivian is in cahoots with Amazon in order to convert its national fleet to electric power, and Stellantis, which owns the RAM brand among many others, is also working with Amazon. Ford is also working to supply companies with electric vans, and
GM
is working with Walmart and FedEx to produce electric vans for both companies. 

What company offers the best EV truck? 

You may not be ready to order a whole fleet of EV trucks or a huge commercial vehicle. However, like many other Americans, you might be interested in purchasing an EV truck. 
Both fuel-conscious and practical, EV trucks are expected to be a huge segment of the EV industry in the coming decade. But which EV truck model is best? 
Currently, the Ford F-150 Lightning is America’s favorite EV model. Perhaps it’s Ford’s classic American image, or the impressive stats that this electrified quarter-ton offers: 426 hp, 775 lb-ft of torque, as well as a 230-mile battery range. In all fairness, the battery range of the Ford F-150 Lightning isn’t ideal. But the Lightning Platinum, if you’re willing to splurge for it, offers a better 300-plus mile range.
