Mullen, Phenix to develop Class 3 EV truck body

Mullen Automotive partners with Phenix for lightweight EV truck development.

Mullen Automotive, an electric vehicle manufacturer, announced the development of a truck body for its Class 3 EV with Phenix Truck Bodies and Van Equipment. Phenix will develop a body configuration designed to satisfy the needs of Class 3 service body truck fleets with the goal of offering an EV alternative to ICE vehicles. Upon upfit completion, the Class 3 vehicle will be made available to Phenix commercial fleet customers for evaluation and pilot programs.

The Mullen Three is said to feature a turning diameter of 38 ft. and visibility for maneuverability on narrow city streets. Its versatile chassis provides a clean top-of-rail for easy upfitting with bodies up to 14 feet in length and over 5,800 lbs. of payload.

Pre-production units of the Mullen Three are available nationally for customer demos and test drives and the companies state that production of the Mullen Three will take place at Mullen’s manufacturing facility in Tunica, Mississippi, with deliveries expected in August and September 2023.
