Mullen Automotive completes solid-state polymer cell-to-pack integration

Mullen Automotive will integrate solid-state polymer cells into a battery pack for an upcoming electric cargo van.

Mullen Automotive has completed a solid-state polymer cell-to-pack integration for Mullen One Class 1 EV cargo vans. Having completed the pack development, Mullen said the solid-state BMS and pack-level testing kicked off on Dec. 28. The company said this progress allows it to remain on schedule to begin on-vehicle road testing of the solid-state polymer packs in the Class 1 EV cargo van in Q1 2024.

“We continue to make significant progress in fulfilling our commitment to providing the next-generation of battery technology to our lineup of EV vehicles, providing a clean and safe alternative to current lithium-ion batteries,” David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive said.

Solid-state polymer cells allow for increased safety and efficiency without sacrificing payload, Mullen said. The Mullen ONE with solid-state polymer battery pack highlights include:

  • 190-mile estimated range;
  • 72-kilowatt solid-state polymer battery pack;
  • 4,881 lbs. GVWR;
  • 1,603 lbs. max payload;
  • 157-cubic-feet cargo volume;
  • 20-foot turning radius.
