Mullen Automotive to Take EV Battery Pack Production In-House

Mullen plans to retrofit its facility to accommodate the production of EV battery packs for its EV vehicle lineup.

Electric vehicle (“EV”) manufacturer Mullen Automotive, Inc. announced plans to begin EV battery pack production out of its high voltage battery R&D facility located in Monrovia, California.

Mullen says it is retrofitting its Monrovia facility to accommodate the production of EV battery packs destined for Mullen’s EV vehicle lineup, including the ONE EV Cargo Van, FIVE EV Crossover, and DragonFLY EV Sportscar programs. Mullen adds it is undertaking this effort to reduce dependency on third-party suppliers and reduce the risk associated with material and supply shortages. By taking battery pack production in-house, Mullen says it will also lower costs and increase overall quality control in battery pack development.

“Building our own battery packs makes sense as it reduces our reliance on third-party suppliers and lessens our risk of being subjected to the waves of supply and critical component shortages,” says David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive. “The entire industry is struggling with supply chain issues and the more control we have in-house, the better off our vehicle programs will be. Our Monrovia facility is already established for high voltage applications so retrofitting it for our battery pack development makes good sense for our company and shareholders.”
