Kim Kardashian has repeatedly stated that she wants to expand her family and her biggest dream is to become pregnant again. The homeowner appears to be a fan of " Keeping Up with the Kardashians ", since most of her belongings are still there.

Built on a custom fabricated all-aluminum frame bolstered by a high-strength, low-alloy (HLSA) steel rollover-resistant skeleton, the Bollinger B1 measures in at 150 x 76.5 x 73.5 inches. Inside, the B1 has sealed gauges and polyurethane-coated floor pans. The 60-kWh pack offers 120 miles of driving range and charges in 7.3 hours on a Level 2 charger, or 45 minutes on a DC fast charger.

The truck promises a 50/50 weight distribution and full-time all-wheel drive. There's a traditional three-spoke steering wheel with an on-the-column shift lever with a conventional PRNDL configuration.

The electric drivetrain offers 360 horsepower and 558 newton metres of torque, hitting 100kmh in just over 4.5 seconds.

It's called the Bollinger Motors B1. The B1 can approach up to 56 degrees, breakover at 33 degrees, and depart at 53 degrees, making it more capable than a Defender 90 (51 degrees approach, 34 degrees breakover, 35 degrees departure). It's aided and suspended by hydro-pneumatic, four-wheel independent, self-leveling suspension with disconnectable anti-roll bars. Enabling that is over 10 inches of wheel travel, a wide 68-inch rear track, and grippy LT285/70/R17 all-terrain tires.

"We are so thrilled to be able to finally take the wraps off of our Bollinger B1 SUT", offered the company's founder and CEO, Robert Bollinger.

The auto is expected to cost $60,000, and will look to begin deliveries within 19 months. "When you factor in this vehicle's superiority over the choices on today's market, we think we have a winning combination".
