The Bollinger B1 is an off-road electric that is intended to reach the market starting in February of 2019, which he still has not set a price. By now there are 6,000 interested in making a reservation.
In reality not there are 6,000 reservations for this new off-road electric with a design very similar to the classic Land Rover Defender. There are 6,000 people who have left their email and some more information of contact because they would be interested in making a reservation, this time with money, of this new electric vehicle.
therefore, the 6,000 ‘reservations’ are not coupled by any type of obligation. It would not make sense to invest this money into a manufacturer that still has not indicated the expected cost of the car.
When you can see the cost and the release date, will be when the company will begin to solicit interested parties with a booking of $ 1,000, that will work, probably, as a refundable deposit at any time, as we have seen in other similar cases.
Jeff Holland, communications director of Bollinger Motors has stated that the live transmission of the presentation of the Bollinger B1 received a lot of attention from the press with more than 12,000 media pending of it and a potential audience of 88 million people. After the presentation, the website received more than 150,000 unique visitors, and the web page of Facebook more than 60,000 visits, which has helped to create these 6,000 are potential holders of reserves.
