The Californian EV manufacturer Mullen Technologies announced that the reservation limit for its Mullen FIVE EV Crossover has been increased to 25,000 initial reservations. The first 25,000 reservations will also receive a custom ‘launch edition’ for vehicle trim package options.
The Mullen FIVE EV crossover recently debuted at the LA Auto Show, and was planned to release in a batch of 5,000 units. As the vehicle turned out more popular than expected, this number was adjusted upwards by an additional 20,000. According to Mullen, “The FIVE is built on an EV crossover skateboard platform that offers multiple powertrain configurations and trim levels.”
In terms of actual technical specifications, the company estimates a 325-mile range (523 km), acceleration from 0-60 in 3.2 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 155 mp/h. These are still company estimates, however, and the EPA tends to rate significantly more strictly than manufacturers, while the powertrain configuration options will also likely affect range and acceleration significantly.
“We’ve decided to increase the limit of the total number of FIVE reservations from 5,000 to 25,000 vehicles due to the strong demand in the first three days of the show,” said Jason Putnam, vice president of marketing for Mullen Automotive. “By establishing a 25,000 reservation limit, this allows us to offer a very special trim option package that will only be available to our initial ‘launch’ customer set.”
Earlier this year, Mullen Technologies also noted high interest in their electric SUV model MX-05, and has recently been gearing up for production by making supply deals with Hofer Powertrain and NexTech Batteries.
