Mullen Automotive, Inc., an emerging electric vehicle manufacturer, announced PowerUP, Mullen’s new mobile electric vehicle charging truck that can deliver level 2 and 3 DC fast charging capabilities in scenarios where such power is unavailable. 

Situations could include roadside assistance and emergency response where immediate power is required for recharging electric vehicles or emergency power backup.

PowerUP will be featured on Mullen’s upcoming 2023 “Strikingly Different” EV Tour, providing level 2 and level 3 DC fast charging to power Mullen’s electric vehicles while on the road and is available now for sale via advance orders. 

“On last year’s tour, we witnessed first-hand how difficult it is to charge vehicles while on the road, especially Level 3 DC fast charging, which is very limited outside of California. As a result, we decided we needed to build a solution to support the 2023 tour and the multiple vehicles featured on tour, including DC fast charging for the Mullen FIVE RS,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive

What is Mullen PowerUp?

The electric vehicle charging truck is based on a Class 5 truck platform, providing up to 150kW of continuous power generation. The vehicle features two level 3 DC fast chargers (one 120 kW or two 60kW each) and four level 2 chargers (7.2kW each). 

Additional vehicle details include:

  • Class 5 Bi-Fuel (Gasoline – LP/RLP) cabover chassis.
  • GVWR – 19,500 lbs.
  • Wheelbase – 150 inches.
  • Featuring a 150kW dual fuel (propane/ natural gas) onboard generator.
  • One 120kW level 3 DC, 950V fast charger, or 60kW level 3 DC.
  • Four 7.2kW level 2 chargers.
  • ~150 Gallons of total onboard propane storage.

“Moving forward, we will offer different configurations of the PowerUp mobile charger for immediate sale via advance order, based on our own commercial EV truck platforms, making this vehicle available for roadside assistance, emergency response, and management teams. Our PowerUP EV truck can deliver high voltage power in mobile or emergency situations or where power is out or not available for fast charging scenarios,” Michery added.

Taking Mullen Vehicles for a Test Drive

The upcoming tour will commence in late summer on August 19, 2023, and continue into November 2023, and will cover the East Coast, Midwest, and Northwest before finishing up in California. Initial announced locations include:

  • Austin, Texas – Aug 20 and 21 at Circuit of Americas.
  • New Orleans, Louisiana – Aug 29 and 30 at NOLA Motorsports Park.
  • Washington D.C. and Philadelphia – Sep 18 and 19 at Dover Motor Speedway.
  • Las Vegas – October 31 and November 1 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
  • Additional tour stops on East Coast, Midwest, Northwest, and West Coast to be announced soon.

Like last year, Mullen FIVE reservation holders and investors will have the priority to secure a spot on the upcoming tour; however, Mullen anticipates being able to accommodate all interested participants due to more vehicles and tour stops in 2023.

A highlight of this year’s tour will be the Mullen FIVE RS, an ultra-high-performance electric vehicle with a top speed of over 200 mph and acceleration from 0-60 mph in just 1.95 seconds. 

The vehicle will have 800-volt architecture, all-wheel drive, a two-speed gearbox, and over 1,100 horsepower. 

Additional electric vehicles on the tour include the Mullen FIVE EV Crossover, the Mullen GT Electric Sports Car, the Mullen ONE Class 1 Commercial EV Cargo Van, the Mullen THREE Commercial Class 3 Electric Truck, and Bollinger B2 Pick Up.
