Mullen Automotive, Inc. (NASDAQ: MULN) is moving northbound with power after CEO David Michery said in during an appearance on a Benzinga YouTube show that an announcement is coming in Q2 on a “major, major Fortune 500 company” purchasing cargo vans. This comes days after Mullen reported it expects to report a cash position of more than $65M when it files its SEC form for the company’s fiscal second quarter ending March 31. Shares of MULN have been highly volatile since the Company went public in November 2021 via a stock-for-stock reverse merger with SPAC Net Element. The stock traded as high as $15.90 per share before months of decline fueled by an overzealous short selling campaign decimated the share price to lows of 0.52 creating one of the best and most exciting opportunities in small caps.
Mullen has the potential to completely disrupt the EV battery space predicted to be worth $175.11 Billion by 2028. The Company partnered with NexTech to produce the much cheaper lithium-sulfur (Li-S) battery pouches that will power the company’s estimated production volume of 100,000 electric cars over the next five years. Apart from being a lot less expensive than comparable lithium-ion cells due to the relative ubiquity of elemental sulfur, these battery packs are also 60 percent lighter, boosting the overall range efficiency of Mullen Automotive’s EVs. The real breakthrough came recently when Mullen reported that recent testing of its a 300Ah solid-state battery cell offered results comparable to an EV range of over 600 miles on a 150-kWh battery pack and over 300 miles of range delivered in 18 minutes with DC fast charging. This represents a quantum leap over current lithium-ion battery systems and could on its own propel MULN to fantastic new highs.
The Company’s CEO David Michery stated Mullen has conducted successful testing and will begin pack level development next. The test data collected shows an impressive outcome and future for solid-state batteries. To sum up, we tested our 300 Ah (ampere hour) cell which yielded 343 Ah at 4.3 volts, and the results surpassed all expectations. We can say with almost certainty that this technology, once implemented on the Mullen FIVE, will deliver over 600 miles of range on a full charge. The future is bright for Mullen Automotive.
In the press release from March 28 Mullens recent history was highlighted: “On Nov. 5, 2021, Mullen began trading on the Nasdaq Capital Markets LLC (“Nasdaq”) under the new stock ticker symbol “MULN.” Since Mullen’s first quarter as a public company starting in Q4 ‘21, the Company has debuted two versions of the Mullen FIVE show cars and announced the purchase of a vehicle manufacturing facility in Tunica, Mississippi. As Q2 ‘22 draws to a close, Mullen is expecting to report over $65 million in cash and cash equivalents on hand for continued momentum and programs development.
Mullen has recently announced a string of key partnerships with hofer powertrain, Comau, ARRK, Dürr and DSA Systems for EV powertrain, engineering, manufacturing, vehicle production systems and Over the Air (OTA) and vehicle system diagnostics, respectively. The Company expects these strategic developments to play a crucial role in bringing the EVs to market with the latest technology and in the least amount of time.
