Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN) just announced a new and improved EV truck development of a light-weight truck body for its Class 3 EV with Phenix Truck Bodies & Van Equipment.

The company said on Monday Phenix will develop a unique, lightweight body configuration designed to satisfy the needs of Class 3 service body truck fleets, with the goal of offering an EV alternative to ICE vehicles.

Upon upfit completion, the Class 3 vehicle will be made available to Phenix commercial fleet customers for evaluation and pilot programs.

Phenix Truck Bodies & Van Equipment, based in Southern California, is one of California’s largest work truck, van equipment and specialty truck body manufacturers.

For 45 years, Phenix has designed and manufactured custom work trucks and fire apparatus for the most selective customers.

Long-term customers include: Southern California Edison, Southern California Gas Company, Los Angeles County Fire Department, San Diego Gas & Electric, USDA-Forest Service and the cities of Los Angeles and San Diego. Phenix is a California Public Utilities Commission (“CPUC”) Clearinghouse Certified Minority Business Enterprise (“MBE”).

The Mullen THREE features a tight turning diameter of 38 ft. and excellent visibility for superior maneuverability on narrow city streets.

Its versatile chassis provides a clean top-of-rail for easy upfitting with bodies up to 14 feet in length and over 5,800 lbs. of payload.

In May, Mullen Automotive announced a successful 2023 commercial drive event at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas for its class 3 truck.

Event participants had the opportunity to meet with technology, sales and product marketing team members from Mullen to discuss their fleet needs and sign up for a vehicle demo.

“Since revealing our Mullen THREE all-electric tilt cab in March, we have had very positive feedback and strong interest,” said John Schwegman, chief commercial officer, Mullen Automotive.

“With availability later this year, we are excited to have fleet customers begin piloting our Class 3 product and experience how an all-electric truck can work in their fleet of vehicles.”

    Frank, while you do clearly state, “according to Mullen” – in your own text, and break up the piece with the “Official statements from Mullen Automotive disclaimer” – it could easily be intrepreted by a casual reader who trusts your opnion as an endorsement of Mullen. It certainly reads that way. Sure – there are disclaimers like…
    “According to Mullen, pre-production units of the Mullen THREE are available nationally for customer demos and test drives.”
    But of course, that is not accurate. There are not vehicles available for customer demos and test drives.
    From a credibility standpoint – are you cool with that?
    I’m not trying to harass you – and I totally get it that this kind of criticism may have a more appropriate forum. Nonetheless, I’m asking. I’m not someone with a social media presence – or an axe to grind.
    I don’t like what is happening to EV reporting, and how it is impacting capital markets as well as consumer sentiment. I think you have a professional and moral responsibility to your audience to be more objective. Or to be more forthright about any other variables that may skew your reporting.
    If you are a supporter, sharholder – or just a fan, that’s something the audience should hear. From you. Thoughts?

      I’ll make it simple for you – I support retail investors, fair markets, and I report both the good and the bad news that comes out. Anything outside of that, such as investor decisions, is outside my control.
