Mullen’s first Class 3 production vehicles roll off the assembly line

Class 3 production capacity at Mullen's Tunica facility is currently planned at 3,000 vehicles annually per shift.

Mullen announced that it will be gradually ramping up production rate of its Mullen Three truck through the remainder of 2023. Once full acceleration has been achieved, Class 3 production capacity at Mullen’s Tunica facility is currently planned at 3,000 vehicles annually per shift. As electric vehicle adoption rates increase, Mullen plans to add a second shift for Class 3 production, which will increase capacity to 6,000 total vehicles per year, the company states.

During the ramp up in volume of the Mullen Three, the production testing and launch of the Mullen One, Class 1 EV Cargo Van will also take place in Tunica. The company says it plans to achieve deliveries on customer orders for both commercial Class 1 and Class 3 vehicles by year end.
