EPA Issues Certificate of Conformity for Mullen Class 1 Van

EPA certification is a key milestone for selling vehicles in the United States.

Mullen Automotive Inc. announced that the Environmental Protection Agency has issued a certificate of conformity for Mullen’s Class 1 EV cargo vans.

Mullen’s commercial Class 1 and Class 3 EV vehicles now have received EPA certification, which is a key milestone for selling vehicles in the United States.

Mullen’s Class 3 EV cab chassis truck received EPA certification on Sept. 22. Class 3 vehicle production began in August, with the first vehicles rolling off the assembly line on Aug. 21.

Class 1 vehicle production began on Nov. 2.

The Mullen Class 1 EV cargo van has completed all mandatory testing requirements for Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and compliance, according to the company. With EPA certification in hand and FMVSS compliance, Mullen will begin shipments of Class 1 EVs to its distributor, Randy Marion Automotive, once the vehicles have completed all production and end-of-line testing requirements.

On Dec. 14, 2022, Mullen announced a $200 million vehicle purchase order with Randy Marion Automotive for 6,000 all-electric Class 1 EV cargo vans.

“With this EPA final approval, Mullen is all-hands-on-deck and laser-focused on production and deliveries to our commercial customers,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive.

The Mullen ONE is a Class 1 commercial electric cargo van, anticipated to be the first of its kind in the U.S. market, according to the company. The van is designed to navigate within narrow urban streets and residential roads, all while maximizing payload and cargo space. The Mullen ONE’s height is less than 6.5 feet, meaning the driver can park the vehicle in a residential garage.
