Bollinger Motors it has teamed up with Wabash to develop a refrigerated truck body on an electric chassis, according to the company's news release.
Wabash has developed a lightweight composite technology, EcoNex Technology, for use in truck bodies and trailers that will integrate with Bollinger’s Class 4 electric chassis cab, according to Bollinger.
“Wabash’s EcoNex composite technology reduces the amount of electricity needed to maintain cold temperatures,” explained Mark Ehrlich, VP of new business development at Wabash. “The all-electric truck we’re developing with Bollinger Motors will be highly efficient with more uptime and less charging compared to conventional construction.”
The offering includes:
- Weight savings due to Wabash’s lightweight EcoNex composite technology.

- Increased total payload capacity due to lower overall truck weight.
- Breakthrough improvement in thermal efficiency compared to conventional design.
