Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ: MULN), an emerging electric vehicle (“EV”) manufacturer, today announced that the company and Rapid Response Defense Systems (“RRDS”) have filed responses for final ruling and compliance by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) application for Mullen’s Class 1 EV cargo van. In March 2023, the companies announced a partnership with RRDS, one of the country’s leading small business federal contractors, selecting Mullen as exclusive provider of Class 1 EV cargo vans. On behalf of Mullen, RRDS filed the Ruling Request Application, which details the substantial transformation Mullen completed for the Class 1 EV cargo van to meet U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and Environmental Protection Agency regulations, which includes the design, testing and validation of new safety systems including airbags, sensors and control modules, rearview camera, front bumper system, wiring harnesses and seating. Through successful completion of the substantial transformative process, the Mullen ONE will be defined as a U.S.-made end product. “Upon a successful ruling, Mullen will have demonstrated the commitment it has made to growing the EV market in the U.S.,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive. “Along with that I am proud to be able to say, ‘An American product, built in America by Americans.’”
