BREA, Calif., Feb. 26, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via IBN – Mullen Automotive Inc. (NASDAQ: MULN) (“Mullen” or the “Company”), an emerging electric vehicle (“EV”) manufacturer, highlights today the Company’s continued focus on the commercial vehicle segment with production and deliveries of its Class 1 and Class 3 commercial EVs. The Company also highlights Bollinger Motors' focus on the Class 4-6 commercial vehicle segment and production start of Class 4 vehicles, which is planned in the second half of 2024.

The Company has achieved positive gross margin per vehicles invoiced, which is an important highlight considering majority of EV companies have launched EVs with significant losses to date. 

“Strategically, in 2022 we understood EV adoption in the commercial sector would occur faster and doubled down on our acquisition efforts with both the majority acquisition of Bollinger Motors and the purchase of Electric Last Mile Solutions assets, which included full ownership of a large automotive manufacturing facility in Mishawaka, Indiana,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive.

“These acquisitions allowed us to scale faster, which is best demonstrated by the launch of commercial vehicle production and customer deliveries in 2023. Mullen’s effort will be matched when Bollinger begins Class 4 production launch, which is planned later in 2024. Our effort on the commercial segment is laser focused and the opportunity has never been better with increased demand seen across all our commercial vehicle offerings.

“Along with production, we have remained steadfastly focused on continuous improvement and R&D as seen in the addition of our battery facility in Fullerton, California, to produce our own packs. The focus on batteries is ever more important for the sector from a range and supply chain perspective. We believe harnessing AI and applying it to our battery management systems can hold additional promise for our vehicles in the commercial sectors.”

Mullen began Class 3 vehicle production in August 2023 and first vehicle deliveries in September 2023. Mullen Class 1 production began in November 2023 with first vehicle deliveries in December 2023.

The all-electric Mullen ONE Class 1 EV cargo van and Mullen THREE Class 3 low cab forward EV truck are both purpose-built to meet the demands of urban last-mile delivery and vocational services. Both the Class 1 and Class 3 commercial vehicles are in receipt of Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) and CARB certifications and can be sold in every state throughout the U.S.
