I kinda like it. It just needs a small Diesel engine (hybrid ) so you can get more then a 200 mile range. The question is , why can't Land Rover make something like this as the new defender. Bare bones with new technology.

Success or failure all boils down to MSRP.

Land Rover did this years ago.



They didn't just build one - they built seven.

I don't have high hopes for the Bollinger. The chassis / frame is um...strangely designed. But whatever.

I guess the looks excite Defender folks.

They can make it, but why? They can't sell it is the problem. Maybe I am going out on a limb here, but I'm pretty sure it's not going to meet any crash safety standards, for example..

If you can spend 60K on an electric SUV you can tow it around with your 3500 diesel

Might just be my eyes, but it looks like it has the drivers elbow room of a Defender.
