Mullen Announces Class 1 EV Sale to Massachusetts Dealer Partner, Eco Auto

Revenue Booked in Quarter Ending June 30, 2024

Eco Auto’s first commercial EV sale going to a Massachusetts-based company offering custom home building, home renovations and maintenance, property management and painting services

 

BREA, Calif., July. 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via IBN -- Mullen Automotive Inc. (NASDAQ: MULN) (“Mullen” or the “Company”), an electric vehicle (“EV”) manufacturer,  announces today the first sale of its Mullen Commercial electric vehicles in Massachusetts through its new dealer partner, Eco Auto. The initial delivery will go to a Massachusetts-based company offering custom home building, home renovations and maintenance, property management and painting services.

The Company announced the addition of zero-emissions commercial vehicle dealership, Eco Auto, earlier this month. Headquartered in Tewksbury, Massachusetts, Eco Auto is a national franchise of automotive dealerships with a core focus of making EVs accessible to all. Eco Auto offers a comprehensive electric vehicle experience for customers by providing affordable EVs, hybrid models, advanced charging stations, and expert EV service in state-of-the-art facilities.

“Eco Auto is excited to launch our partnership with Mullen,“ said Al Salas, president of Eco Autos. “We believe Mullen EVs help lower the barrier to entry to commercial electrification.” 

“We are thrilled to announce the first Mullen Commercial EV sale in Massachusetts with our valued partner, Eco Auto,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive. “We are confident that our commercial EVs will be a game-changer for businesses looking to electrify in Massachusetts, offering them a reliable, efficient, and environmentally friendly transportation solution.”

Mullen’s commercial EV lineup includes the Mullen ONE, Class 1 EV cargo van, and the Mullen THREE, Class 3 EV cab chassis truck, purpose-built to meet the demands of urban last-mile delivery. Both vehicles are available for sale and in full compliance with U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the California Air Resources Board (“CARB”) certifications denoting strict adherence to clean air emissions standards.

Earlier this month, the Mullen THREE qualified for a $15,000 incentive through the State of Massachusetts MOR-EV program. Massachusetts is a CARB-approved state with a similar program to California’s Hybrid and Zero-Emissions Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (“HVIP”), which in April approved the Mullen THREE for a $45,000 HVIP cash rebate voucher at time of vehicle purchase.

 

Eco Auto is Mullen’s authorized commercial dealer for the New England Area

Eco’s first commercial sale is going to a Massachusetts-based company offering custom home building, home renovations and maintenance, property management and painting services.
