BREA, Calif., July 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via IBN – Mullen Automotive, Inc. (NASDAQ: MULN) (“Mullen” or the “Company”), an emerging electric vehicle (“EV”) manufacturer announces the launch of an EV pilot program with New York Power Authority (“NYPA”).
On July 6, 2023, NYPA began testing Mullen’s EV Cargo Van, the all-electric Campus Delivery Utility Vehicle, at its location in upstate New York.
New York Power Authority is a power generation and transmission company at the forefront of producing and bringing clean, reliable energy to New York.
NYPA’s 2030 Vision is a thriving, resilient New York State powered by clean energy. NYPA 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. NYPA’s strategic priorities include preserving and enhancing the value of NYPA hydropower assets; pioneering the path to decarbonizing NYPA natural gas plants; becoming a leading transmission developer, owner and operator; partnering with customers and the state to decarbonize energy use; and reimaging the New York state canals system.
“We are very excited to have this pilot with NYPA as they work towards eliminating carbon emissions in the state of New York,” said John Schwegman, chief commercial officer of Mullen Automotive. “It takes a few organizations to start the buzz of sustainability in each state. We see NYPA as one of the first movers in New York. We look forward to enhancing NYPA and other fleets’ sustainability goals with our various all-electric commercial vehicles.”
“It’s exciting to see our EVs enter the utility provider market and into upstate New York with the NYPA pilot. Our EV cargo van is a great fit in closed workplace campus scenarios,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive.
The Mullen CAMPUS is a highly efficient electric van designed for low-speed, closed campus use. The Campus Delivery Van has all the same DNA as the Mullen ONE but was purpose-built to be an ideal delivery solution for micro-environments.
