BOLLINGER Motors has given the front-end of its boxy B1 a nose job, to improve aerodynamic performance.

Take a glance at the B1’s simple lines and rugged design and you’d be forgiven for thinking aerodynamics wasn’t exactly a priority when the sketches turned into something tangible; but the boffins at Bollinger HQ have been hard at work, subtly tweaking the nose to give the B1 a new-look front fascia.

The video uploaded to YouTube shows the B1 undergoing thorough aerodynamic testing, with the major amendments made to the vents (exit vents are now positioned on the hood) and headlights (now positioned within the mesh grille).

The B1 was originally unveiled in July 2017, in New York. The full-time all-wheel drive system employs a dual-motor powertrain configuration, with front- and rear-mounted synchronous electric motors (capable of 270kW and 640Nm). Production models will be offered with two lithium-ion battery-pack options (60kWh and 100kWh), with ranges of either 120 (193km) or 200 miles (322km).
