Mullen Automotive, Inc. (NASDAQ: MULN), an emerging electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer, is integrating solid-state polymer battery technology into its commercial Class 1 EV cargo van program. The Mullen Class 1 EV cargo van currently features a 46-kilowatt lithium-ion battery pack with a range of 110 miles. However, with the integration of solid-state polymer technology, Mullen expects the cargo van to deliver more than 200 miles of range on a full charge. Solid-state batteries offer higher energy density, faster charging time, smaller size, and better safety compared to traditional lithium-ion cells. The company will begin testing this technology in Class 1 EV cargo vans in Q4 2023. Mullen’s partnership with Linghang Guochuang Holding Group Co., Ltd. has enabled the implementation of LH solid-state polymer battery technology in a commercial vehicle, making Mullen the first company in the US to do so. The development of solid-state polymer batteries demonstrates Mullen’s commitment to improving battery efficiency and overall vehicle performance.
