Brea, California-based Mullen Automotive Inc. has announced that its factory in Mishawaka, Indiana is now open and ready for production. This news comes on the heels of the company’s recent acquisition of ELMS assets and majority ownership of Bollinger Motors, which has given Mullen the ability to integrate Bollinger’s B1 and B2 vehicle platforms with its own FIVE and FIVE RS platforms into a single manufacturing facility.

The acquisition and integration of these assets has allowed Mullen to accelerate the launch of the Bollinger B1 and B2 retail vehicles by more than a year, with production now set to begin in 2023. This is in addition to the production of the FIVE and FIVE RS, which will also be produced at the Mishawaka factory in 2023.

Mullen Automotive operates in various verticals within the automotive industry, including CarHub, a digital platform that uses artificial intelligence to provide an interactive solution for buying, selling, and owning a car, and Mullen Energy, a division focused on advancing battery technology and emergency point-of-care solutions. The company was founded in 2010 and is headquartered in Brea, California.
