Mullen Automotive, Inc., an emerging electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer, announced a strategic partnership with AARK, an automotive engineering company based in Munich, Germany. ARRK’s initial support will be targeted at the Mullen FIVE EV Crossover and then move into future vehicles, including a seven-seat SUV program, says Mullen.
ARRK will be supporting Mullen Automotive in Computer Aided Engineering (CAE), body in white, battery, closures, interior, chassis, thermal, and infotainment engineering.
“ARRK is a leading automotive engineering company with a global footprint, including working with some of the most well-respected automotive manufacturers, such as BMW, VW brands and Mercedes-Benz. Their vehicle engineering expertise will be a key component for us in hitting our production timeline for the FIVE and beyond,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive.
“Supporting the engineering development of the Mullen FIVE vehicle for global CAE, body development with closures, high voltage battery housing, interior, chassis, thermal management and infotainment for the next 3-year period will be a great challenge for us at ARRK,” said Florian Gerber, vice president of development for body, high voltage battery, interior and exterior, and composite at ARRK. “We are very pleased about this cooperation and are looking forward to shaping the electric car future together with Mullen.”
