Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN) announced today that UNC Charlotte (The University of North Carolina at Charlotte) will be taking delivery of an additional 8 Mullen EV cargo vans.
This is the second vehicle order for UNC Charlotte, with a total of 15 vehicles to be utilized across the university’s campus.
UNC’s first order of seven Mullen EV cargo vans was delivered in March of 2023.
Vehicle orders are being fulfilled through Randy Marion Automotive, a distributor of Mullen’s commercial EVs.
UNC Charlotte, North Carolina’s urban research university, founded in 1946, purchased the Mullen EV cargo vans for use across its 1,000-acre Charlotte campus and more than 29,500 students.
The EV cargo vans are being used for a variety of university use cases, including campus delivery and facility services.
Mullen Automotive stock continues to get beat by short sellers despite several positive developments.
The company announced last week that it is looking into the possibility of manipulation and illegal shorting activity in the stock.

“We are very impressed with the first set of Mullen EV vans for our on-campus use,” said T.J. Woods, the university’s transportation, warehouse, and logistics manager.
“Ordering additional Mullen EV cargo vans makes perfect sense for us.
There’s a lower cost of ownership, no messy fill-ups, tailpipe exhaust, or disruptive vehicle idling sounds to impact our daily campus life.
Mullen Campus EVs are also great to highlight to our students, as it shows we can all make a difference in lowering our overall carbon footprint.”
“Offering college campuses a low-cost acquisition that allows schools to reduce their operating costs, reduce their maintenance and reduce their CO2 emissions is an ideal use case for our EV cargo vans,” said John Schwegman, chief commercial officer Mullen Automotive.
“It’s exciting to see UNC grow their EV fleet business with us.
Our EVs are a perfect fit for university use, and Charlotte is at the forefront of implementing EVs into their daily campus life,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive.
