BREA, Calif., September 15, 2022– via InvestorWire – Mullen Automotive, Inc. (NASDAQ: MULN) (“Mullen” or the “Company”), an emerging electric vehicle (“EV”) manufacturer, announces specifications and provides a first look at the ultra-high-performance EV sport crossover the FIVE RS.
Specs to include top speed of over 200 mph and 0-60 in 1.9 seconds.
The Mullen FIVE RS is an ultra-high-performance EV that will feature a top speed of 200 mph and acceleration from 0-60 mph in just 1.9 seconds. The vehicle will be equipped with 800-volt architecture, all-wheel drive, a two-speed gearbox, and over 1,000 horsepower.
“The Mullen FIVE RS is an extremely high-performance EV and intended for those who especially enjoy track/high-performance driving,” said Calin Popa, president of Mullen Automotive. “What we’ve done with this EV and the specs we’ve accomplished is indeed an amazing technical achievement.”
“From the inception of Mullen, it has been my mission to bring an ultra-high-performance EV to market,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive. “The FIVE RS is intended to be one of the fastest vehicles on the planet, competing with some of the best and most well-known and regarded automotive marquees. I look forward to showcasing this vehicle on the track this next spring.”
As previously announced, the first leg of the “Strikingly Different” U.S. test-drive tour will first showcase the Mullen FIVE EV Crossover and begins next month. The FIVE RS will join the tour's second leg in the spring of 2023.
Due to the high-powered capabilities of the FIVE RS, consumers will not be allowed to test drive the vehicle directly at this stage. Instead, Mullen will offer consumers the opportunity to ride in the Mullen FIVE RS alongside a professional IndyCar race car driver, providing an up-close and personal experience in one of the fastest vehicles available globally.
Mullen will offer “front row” FIVE reservation holders the first chance to test drive and experience the Mullen FIVE in person on the “Strikingly Different” U.S. test drive tour beginning this fall. Mullen asks interested individuals who have not already done so to book their FIVE reservations here in order to secure a spot on the upcoming national tour. Further details and upcoming progress will be shared on Mullen’s social media platforms and with individuals who opt to stay connected here.
