Mullen announces Class 3 EV production start

Mullen will be gradually ramping up production rate over the course of September through December.

Production has started for the Mullen Three, Mullen Automotive’s Class 3 electric truck. Production begins at its Tunica, Mississippi, assembly plant, and the company says that the first customer deliveries are on track to begin in August and September.   

Mullen says it will be gradually ramping up production rate over the course of September through December. Once fully ramped, Class 3 production capacity at the Tunica facility is currently planned for 3,000 Class 3 vehicles per year. To date, the company has received $79 million in purchase orders for 1,250 Mullen Three trucks from Randy Marion Automotive Group and MGT Lease Company, the company notes.

The company notes that the Mullen Three features an 11,000 Gross Vehicle Weight Rating, a tight turning diameter of 38 feet and increased visibility for maneuverability on narrow city streets. The chassis allows for bodies up to 14 feet long and over 5,800 pounds of payload. In addition, the design of the LCF chassis will allow an estimated (EPA) range of 130 miles and more cargo volume within a given overall length, Mullen noted.
