Borgward B1250 Pollmann 1951 by Autocult
German automotive manufacturers the name “Borgward” stands even today for a
company, which has always been innovative and forward-looking. How
forward-thinking the management of the Bremen-based company with some of its
models really was, becomes sometimes only from a present-day perspective clear.
This applies the body design of a mini bus of Borgward, which equals the
current generation of family vans.
1951 Borgward had the idea to built a car body on basis of a powerful
automobile, which could accommodate overall eight passengers. Back then the cab
trade was considered to be a suitable field of application. The Bremen-based
body maker Pollmann, which built up reputation for its funeral vans, was
charged with the design of a fitting to the Hansa-chassis car body. From a
present-day perspective the design seems quite high, edged and less graceful.
But this design was possibly due to Pollmann’s strict demand of using the
front- and rear end of its series-produced passenger car Hansa. At least two
prototypes in running condition were built in the first half of the 1950s,
which indicates a certain seriousness of the management regarding this project.
in the end the project was not approved to go into series production. Reasons
for that got unfortunately lost in the course of time as well as both
