Durability, dependability, performance make the Bollinger B4 the right choice for fire rescue trucks

 

BREA, Calif., July 09, 2024– via InvestorWire – Mullen Automotive, Inc. (NASDAQ: MULN) (“Mullen” or the “Company”), an electric vehicle (“EV”) manufacturer, announces today its subsidiary, Bollinger Motors, has reached an agreement to sell five all-electric Class 4 Bollinger B4 commercial trucks to Spencer Manufacturing (“Spencer”), which will upfit the vehicles into fire rescue trucks.
