Mullen’s First Production Vehicle Rolls Off Assembly Line

The Mullen Three, a Class 3 EV truck, rolled off the line at Mullen’s assembly facility in Mississippi on Aug. 21.

Mullen Automotive, Inc. announced the first production vehicle, the Mullen Three, a Class 3 EV truck, rolled off the line at Mullen’s commercial vehicle assembly facility located in Tunica, Mississippi, on August, 21, 2023.

Mullen says it will gradually be ramping up the production rate through the balance of this calendar year. Once full acceleration has been achieved, Class 3 production capacity at the Tunica facility is currently planned at 3,000 vehicles annually per shift. As electric vehicle adoption rates increase, Mullen adds it plans to add a second shift for Class 3 production, which will increase capacity to 6,000 total vehicles per year.

“We have been true to our commercial Class 3 vehicle production commitments and have now achieved a significant milestone with the first trucks rolling off the line,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman.

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, achieving deliveries on customer orders for both commercial Class 1 and Class 3 vehicles by year end, according to the company.

To date, Mullen says it has received $79 million in purchase orders for the Mullen THREE, Class 3 EV trucks from Randy Marion Automotive Group and MGT Lease Company.

Tips For Lifting HEVs and BEVs

If you can’t lift a vehicle without damage, you will not be able to unlock this service opportunity in this growing segment.

Most HEV and EV vehicle repairs are not those done to battery packs or electric motors. Instead, the most significant repair opportunities are tires, brakes, and suspension. And if you can’t lift a vehicle without damage, you will not be able to unlock this service opportunity in this growing segment. The stakes are higher for EVs and hybrids because if a lift arm or adapter is not correctly placed, it could damage an expensive battery pack mounted under the vehicle. Some of these battery packs can cost five figures to replace. Also, there is a fire hazard. If a battery pack is impacted or punctured, never guess where or how to pick up a vehicle. A vehicle’s owner’s manual or service manual often will provide guidance on where to find and how to access the appropriate jacking and lifting points. Some EVs and HVS have specific lift points stamped into the unibody.
