BREA, Calif., Dec. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via IBN – Mullen Automotive, Inc. (NASDAQ: MULN) (“Mullen” or the “Company”), an emerging electric vehicle (“EV”) manufacturer, today announces the achievement of a key commercial EV milestone with its all-electric Class 1 cargo van. The Mullen ONE received certification from the California Air Resources Board (“CARB”) as a zero-emission vehicle in the state of California. The certification is awarded to vehicle manufacturers who meet specific emissions standards in compliance with CARB regulations. To date, a total of 15 states and the District of Columbia follow CARB regulations. 

The Mullen ONE previously received a certificate of conformity from the Environmental Protection Agency on Nov. 2, 2023, permitting sales in the majority of U.S. states. California as well as 14 other states and District of Columbia have adopted vehicle standards under Section 177 of the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. §7507), which requires additional approvals beyond EPA regulations. Having received credentials from CARB and the EPA, Mullen can now sell the Mullen ONE in every state throughout the U.S. 

Additionally, the certification gives the Mullen ONE eligibility for critical state EV incentive programs. The CARB certification takes on even more significance with CARB’s recent Advanced Clean Truck regulation, which will require that all local delivery and government fleets must be zero emissions by 2036. The Mullen ONE can now be eligible for cash incentive programs which vary by each eligible CARB compliant state.

“The CARB certification is an important milestone for Mullen as sales in the CARB compliant states represents over two thirds of all EVs sold in the U.S.,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive. “As a next step, we are working to ensure the Mullen ONE is also part of all eligible state incentive programs to further support the sale and adoption of the Mullen ONE across the U.S.”
