Mullen Automotive will showcase both its Class 1 EV cargo van and Class 3 low-cab forward at the Work Truck Week 2023 in Indianapolis, Indiana. This showcase aligns with the recent announcement of a $US2.7bn contract from Rapid Response Defense Systems (RRDS), under the General Services Administration (GSA).
The contract will see Mullen Automotive and RRDS cooperate in fast-tracking large-scale vehicle fleet orders for the US Federal Government.
“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 senior vice president Fred Bouman. “Mullen’s Class 1 EV cargo van launches this year and will be the only class 1 EV van in the market. It is 100% electrified, making it a strong fit for federal government business.”
“Mullen Automotive is proud to team up with RRDS for US government fleet opportunities for our Class 1 EV cargo vans,” said Mullen’s CEO and Chairman David Michery. “We look forward to working closely with RRDS in meeting the demand for EVs across the U.S. government’s fleet of vehicles.”
