Emerging electric vehicle manufacturer Mullen Automotive Inc. has collaborated with Knapheide Manufacturing and Phenix Truck Bodies & Van Equipment on a light-weight service truck body for the All-Electric Mullen THREE.

The Mullen, Knapheide, and Phenix teams have developed a light-weight body configuration designed to bring an EV solution for Class 3 service body truck fleets to municipalities and public utilities.

The Mullen THREE Class 3 vehicle upfit, shown recently in Mullen’s CES 2024 booth, is available to commercial fleet customers for evaluation and pilot programs. The truck also will be featured at the NTEA Work Truck Show and Advanced Clean Transportation Expo. 

The Mullen THREE has a range of 125 miles and offers Level 3 DC charge time of 1.5 hrs. The THREE also includes best-in-class turning diameter of 38 ft. Its versatile chassis provides a clean top-of-rail for easy upfitting with bodies up to 14 feet in length and over 5,800 lbs. of payload.

“This Mullen THREE Phenix/Knapheide upfit is a perfect use case for municipalities and utilities who need to transition away from gas and diesel and into electric, especially in states with strong incentives to switch, like California and other CARB states,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive. “Phenix is one of the best upfitters out there and partnering with both Phenix and Knapheide to develop this Class 3 solution opens an important segment for us with public utilities and local municipalities, especially in California.”
