Mullen Automotive announced a 1,000-vehicle order for the Mullen THREE, a Class 3 low cab-forward EV truck.
The order has been placed by the Randy Marion Automotive Group in North Carolina, with deliveries commencing in August. The purchase order is valued at $63 million, according to the company.
The Mullen THREE is a Class 3 low cab-forward EV truck featuring a turning diameter of 38 feet and excellent visibility for superior maneuverability on narrow city streets, according to Mullen Automotive. This versatile chassis provides a clean top-of-rail for easy upfitting with bodies up to 14 feet long and over 5,800 pounds of payload. In addition, the design of the LCF chassis allows more cargo volume within a given overall length.
“We continue to receive great interest for Mullen’s commercial vehicles, especially the Class 3 cab chassis,” said Brad Sigmon, fleet GM and vice president of Randy Marion Automotive Fleet Operations.
Mullen’s commercial-EV lineup includes Class 1 cargo vans and Class 3 cab chassis offerings and Bollinger Motors Class 4-6 chassis products. Mullen’s commercial-vehicle lineup will be manufactured at the Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Center near Tunica, Mississippi.
“Randy Marion continues to set the bar for commercial-EV dealerships in the U.S.,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive. “We are proud to be working alongside RMA in getting Mullen’s commercial EVs, starting with our Class 1 and Class 3 EVs, out to our commercial customers.”
