    Electric DC Ute for Australian Mines

    This looks promising, they are talking about a consumer version.

    Sounds interesting - but also very expensive, and it would be interesting to see what is needed to meet ADRs.

    Yes - I was thinking things such as bumper heights, airbags, lights, seat and belt anchorages, child restraint anchors etc etc. None of them a big deal, but put them all together, with documentation etc. Then there is crash testing, anti-roll requirements etc.

    Those are the exact same things I will be paying attention to with the Rivian and Bollinger, if or when, they manage to get to our shores.

    I would hope there is more space in the 2nd row seats than the size of the rear door indicates?

    Looks like Dana 60/70 front and rear .

    Im sure if the mines are using them they will have all the safety gear .

    I'm of the understanding that Low production runs like Bollinger don't have to comply to the same ADR standards as Mass production re crash testing / airbags etc. Same as ICV's , soft dash / Airbags / pretensions / ESC etc are not required for road rego.

    AU Mines only touch 5 star safety rated 4x4s now hence why only the single cab 79 is used.
