Mullen announces all-electric mobile EV charging truck

Mullen’s PowerUP was first introduced as a mobile EV charging truck delivering level 2 and level 3 DC fast charging capabilities.

Mullen Automotive is developing a zero-emissions version of PowerUP, its mobile EV charging solution, that will now be offered on the company’s Class 3 all-electric cab chassis truck. Mullen’s PowerUP was first introduced in July 2023 as a mobile EV charging truck delivering level 2 and level 3 DC fast charging capabilities in scenarios where such power is not available, including roadside assistance and emergency response where immediate power is required for recharging electric vehicles or emergency power backup.

The company said this new zero-emissions PowerUP mobile charging truck represents a strategic pivot from the previously announced model which utilized a gasoline Class 5 cab chassis platform and a dual-fuel (propane/natural gas) power generation unit.

Now available with multiple platform integration and scaling options including the Mullen Three Class 3 cab chassis truck, the zero-emissions PowerUP system also offers significant improvements in charging capabilities and versatility, Mullen said. The company said the zero-emissions mobile charging solution is intended to be a scalable battery platform that can be configured to meet various market needs, ranging from 10kW to 1MW, and can utilize new or re-purposed battery cells. It features Level 3 DC fast charging, off-grid AC power, and micro-grid connectivity, making it suitable for multiple applications. PowerUP also features quiet operation with minimal noise pollution, Mullen said.

“We’re constantly innovating and adapting to meet the evolving needs of the industry,” said David Michery, chief executive officer and chairman of Mullen Automotive. “The feedback on the initial PowerUP concept was overwhelmingly positive, but the market is clearly looking for a zero-emission solution. By leveraging our all-electric Mullen Three, the new PowerUP delivers recharging at a higher level of scalability and performance while offering zero emissions for both the vehicle and power unit.”
