Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN) has announced new details about the government EV testing project initiated back in April of this year.
The $680,000 contract was previously awarded by the District of Columbia, Washington, D.C., to EV Technologies, LLC. for the purchase and installation of EMM units on Chevrolet Bolts within the D.C. city government’s vehicle fleet.
Mullen Advanced Energy Operations (“MAEO”) is supporting EV Technologies for the execution of the contract, which started on April 24, 2023.
MAEO, which is a 51%-owned subsidiary of Mullen Automotive, is a collaboration with Global EV Technology, Inc. (“Global”).
MAEO has named Lawrence Hardge to the position of Senior Vice President of Technology.
Lawrence will be overseeing all technological aspects of the Energy Management Module (“EMM”) applications, per the latest press release by Mullen.
“We look forward to completing our installation work here in D.C., and the next steps as vehicles enter the fleet with our EMM and also future opportunities with the local and federal government agencies,” said Lawrence Hardge, CEO of EV Technologies, LLC.
“As testing and installations continue in D.C., we will provide further updates,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive.
Testing and installation is planned for completion on a total of 40 vehicles over the next few weeks.
Mullen Becomes Exclusive Partner to New Federal Contractor
Mullen became an exclusive partner to a new federal contractor in early May.
The company announced today teaming up with Rapid Response Defense Systems (“RRDS”) to fast-track U.S. Federal Government opportunities for potential large-scale vehicle fleet orders.
RRDS, one of the country’s leading small business federal contractors, has executed over 2,500 federal government delivery orders since 2014.
The company currently holds a prime seat on 12 Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) federal contracts with combined funding ceilings of $4 billion.
In 2021, U.S. Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh recognized RRDS as a recipient of the 2021 HIRE Vets Medallion Award during an award ceremony at the U.S. Department of Labor.
“RRDS is all about providing solutions to the federal government,” said Mullen’s Manager of Government Sales Ronald Dixon.
“Whether its designing products to meet Department of Defense mission requirements or enhancing supply chain logistics, they have a remarkable success record.
In addition, RRDS will be a key vehicle supplier to the General Service Administration in an awarded 5-year multibillion-dollar vehicle contract.
We are focused on selling our EV products to the federal government and view this relationship as a strategic step in accomplishing that goal.”
“With the federal government’s strong interest in electrifying a growing portion of its vehicle fleet, Mullen’s commercial portfolio is very well positioned,” said RRDS SVP – Federal Fred Bouman.
Lawrence Hardge Hints at $10 Billion Saudi Arabia Deal
Global EV Technology founder Lawrence Hardge says Mullen Automotive has a $10 billion contract with Saudi Arabia.
“This is not what somebody said or what you heard, this is reality.
$10 billion contract with Saudi Arabia.
And more to come … Mullen and Lawrence Hardge are here to assist them, they have countries like Yemen, Israel, all of them have joined in to take this technology, and they’re going to produce it in Saudi Arabia and they’re also paying for a manufacturing plant to come to Michigan.
That’s in black and white.
So, the SEC if you’re watching, that’s already agreed upon.”
Mullen Automotive has not officially confirmed the $10bn contract with Saudi Arabia, though we have seen in the past that Mullen releases official statements months later after rumors begin to trend.
MULN stock fell -1.57% on Monday and is currently down more than -84% this year-to-date.
