Mullen Automotive, Inc. announced the completion of a light-weight service truck body for the electric Mullen Three, which was developed in collaboration with Phenix Truck Bodies & Van Equipment and Knapheide Manufacturing. Mullen and the Phenix/Knapheide teams have developed a light-weight body configuration designed to bring an EV solution for Class 3 service body truck fleets to municipalities and public utilities, the companies said. The Mullen Three Class 3 vehicle upfit is available to commercial fleet customers for evaluation and pilot programs.
“This Mullen Three Phenix/Knapheide upfit is a perfect use case for municipalities and utilities who need to transition away from gas and diesel and into electric, especially in states with strong incentives to switch, like California and other CARB states,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive. “Phenix is one of the best upfitters out there and partnering with both Phenix and Knapheide to develop this Class 3 solution opens an important segment for us with public utilities and local municipalities, especially in California.”
