Mullen earns CARB certification for Class 3 electric truck

The certification is awarded to vehicle manufacturers who meet specific emissions standards in compliance with CARB regulations.

Mullen Automotive received California Air Resources Board (CARB) certification for its all-electric Class 3 low cab forward chassis truck. The certification is awarded to vehicle manufacturers who meet specific emissions standards in compliance with CARB regulations. The District of Columbia and 14 states, including California, have adopted vehicle standards under Section 177 of the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. §7507), which requires additional approvals beyond EPA regulations, Mullen said.

Mullen’s Class One and Class Three commercial vehicles are now both in receipt of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and CARB certifications. Both vehicles also are in full compliance with U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. Having received credentials from CARB and the EPA, Mullen can now sell both the Mullen One and Three in every state throughout the U.S.

Additionally, CARB certification opens both the Mullen One and Three eligibility for critical state EV incentive programs, which vary by each eligible CARB-compliant state, Mullen said. The certification takes on even more significance with CARB’s recent Advanced Clean Fleets (ACF) regulation, which will have a requirement that state and local government fleets, including city, county, special district and state agency fleets, ensure 50% of vehicle purchases are zero-emission beginning in 2024 and 100% of vehicle purchases are zero-emission by 2027. Fleets that fall under high priority may also elect to utilize ZEV milestones as an option to meet overall ZEV targets.

Under HVIP, the Mullen Three EV truck, with a suggested MSRP of $68,500.00, may qualify for a rebate of up to $45,000 and, when combined with the available $7,500 federal tax credit, the net effective cost of the Mullen Three would be less than $20,000.
