Mullen Five, new electric SUV with a range of up to 520 km


At the Los Angeles Auto Show did its debut the new electric SUV Mullen Five , a model of the American startup Mullen Technologies that aims, on paper, to want carve out a space in the increasingly crowded battery-powered SUV market. Those interested can already book it by leaving a refundable deposit of 95 dollars. It starts from 55 thousand dollars. The car will be built at the company’s plant in Robinsonville, Mississippi. The manufacturer expects to start deliveries around the middle of 2024.

THERE WILL ALSO BE A SPORTS MODEL

For the moment, not many details have been shared about this new car which should ideally be a rival , just to name a couple, of the Tesla Model Y (HERE in our test) and the Volkswagen ID.4. We still don’t know anything specific about the powertrain. However, the car will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour (96 km / h) in just 3.2 seconds. The maximum speed, electronically limited, reaches 155 miles per hour (approx. 250 km / h).

The battery will have a capacity of 95 kWh e will allow you to have an (estimated) range of 325 miles equal to just over 520 km . Apparently there will be several versions including an “RS” model capable of reaching the 200 miles per hour (approx. 320 km / h) and accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 1.9 seconds. On the subject of recharging, the American manufacturer speaks generically of minutes to reach 80% of capacity accumulator starting from 0.



The SUV will also feature advanced ADAS systems and offer a lot of luxury inside the cabin. Among the technologies that should be present, facial recognition and active noise cancellation to improve passenger comfort. Inside the cockpit there will also be a large infotainment display. A screen is also provided for the rear passengers. There will also be wireless charging for smartphones.

A model that on paper seems to have good potential: the advent of electric mobility is offering the possibility to new realities to make themselves known. It will be interesting to understand how this project will continue.
