Mullen Announces Purchase Order for Commercial Urban Delivery EV

Mullen Secures Purchase Order for Commercial Urban Delivery EV

Ireland’s Newgate Motor Group has ordered 30 Mullen-GO commercial urban delivery EVs.

Mullen Automotive announced a 30-unit purchase order for the Mullen-GO commercial urban delivery EV for Newgate Motor Group.  

Newgate, one of Ireland’s most recognized dealership groups, is the marketing, sales, distribution and servicing agent for the Mullen-GO in Ireland and the United Kingdom.

The 30-unit order of the Mullen-GO represents the first sale of vehicles for delivery outside of the United States and into the European market. The estimated value of the booked order is $321,000, and is expected to be reflected in Mullen’s current fiscal-quarter reporting.

Mullen and Newgate previously announced plans for up to 500 vehicles per year.

The Mullen-GO is Mullen’s urban commercial delivery vehicle, which is designed to bridge the gap between the growing demand for quick deliveries and space constraints in dense cities throughout Europe. The vehicle is EU-standard homologated, certified and ready for sale in initial markets of the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, France and Ireland.

“The feedback from the Irish automotive market has been positive in relation to the Mullen-GO,” said James Ring, general manager of Newgate Motor Group. “We see potential for this model and the Mullen brand. This decision reflects our commitment to the Newgate-Mullen partnership and zero-emission transport solutions.”

Newgate Motor Group has more than 40 years of experience in the automotive industry and represents several brands, including Renault/Dacia, Kia and Mercedes-Benz. Newgate Motor Group also represents XBUS and Evetta electric vehicles from the German-based company Electric Brands.

“Newgate has generated great interest on the Mullen-GO to-date, and we are excited to kick off sales in Europe with them,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive. “As I have stated previously, the Mullen-GO is a great alternative vehicle for commercial delivery in dense metro European cities. The small size is perfect on tight Euro streets and the zero emissions and lower cost of ownership is a great combination for potential commercial customers.”
