Mullen to use solid-state polymer EV batteries in cargo vans

Solid-state batteries can potentially offer higher energy density, faster charging time and a smaller size, Mullen says.

Mullen Automotive says it will integrate solid-state polymer battery technology into the company’s commercial Class 1 EV cargo van program. Currently, the Mullen Class 1 EV cargo van features a 46-kilowatt lithium-ion battery pack with a 110-mile range. Mullen says it is expected that the solid-state polymer technology will deliver more than 200 miles of range on a full charge for the Mullen Class 1 EV cargo van.

In general, solid-state batteries offer higher energy density, faster charging time, smaller size, and better safety compared to traditional lithium-ion cells, Mullen says, and the company will begin testing this technology in its Class 1 EV cargo vans starting in Q4 2023.

“The continued development of solid-state polymer batteries into our portfolio of vehicles, starting with the Class 1 EV cargo van, demonstrates our continued commitment to improving battery efficiency and overall vehicle performance,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive.
