Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN) just sold a new batch of its EVs to the NYPA after a successful 60-day pilot program.
Shares of the startup EV company rose more than +4% on Thursday following the announcement.
“Today the New York Power Authority (“NYPA” or the “Power Authority”) has purchased Mullen’s Campus Delivery Cargo Vans after successful completion of an EV pilot program at NYPA’s 16-turbine hydroelectric facility in northern New York.
The 60-day EV cargo van pilot began on July 6, 2023, and concluded in early September 2023.
As a result, NYPA will purchase the initial pilot vehicles for fleet operations at its St. Lawrence-Franklin D. Roosevelt Power Project, NYPA’s first active power plant, which opened in 1958.
The Power Authority is assessing additional NYPA locations for Mullen’s full lineup of commercial EVs, including Class 1 EV cargo vans and Class 3 EV cab chassis trucks,” stated the company in its press release.
“It’s great to see our EVs enter the Northeast market with the New York Power Authority, our nation’s largest public utility, using our delivery utility model for campus transportation.
Our EV cargo van is a perfect fit for large, closed workplace campus scenarios,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive.
The New York Power Authority is the largest state public power organization in the U.S., operating 16 generating facilities and more than 1,400 circuit miles of transmission lines.
NYPA is at the forefront of producing and bringing clean, reliable energy to the state of New York.
NYPA’s vision is to create a thriving, resilient New York State powered by clean energy and is leading the transition to a carbon-free, economically vibrant New York through customer partnerships, innovative energy solutions, and the responsible supply of affordable clean and reliable electricity.
