The Mullen Five is an Electric SUV that Promises Tesla Plaid Acceleration

The Mullen Five is a new electric SUV that has big ambitions

The Mullen Five is an electric SUV that was revealed at the Los Angeles Auto Show. It claims to be able to match the Tesla Model S Plaid in terms of acceleration and to have a range of up to 325 miles (523 kilometers).

Mullen Technologies is a company based in California that wants to bring this vehicle to market at the beginning of 2024, with production starting in Mississippi in the third quarter of 2023.

This SUV will be equipped with a 95-kWh battery that will allow it to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 96 km/h) in only 3.2 seconds, with a top speed that is electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h).

A sportier RS version will take on the Tesla Model S Plaid, the fastest iteration of the electric sedan, with an acceleration time of only 1.9 seconds.

The range for the RS version was not revealed, but the regular model should be able to drive 325 miles (523 kilometers) on a single charge, with fast charging capabilities that can replenish 80% of the power in 21 minutes.

The entry-level model is expected to sell for $55,000 in the United States and it can already be pre-ordered by leaving a $100-dollar refundable deposit.

The vehicle that was shown appears to be almost ready for production, although it is still about two years away from that stage, perhaps due to the lack of experience of its manufacturer.

The SUV adopts a sleek look that is somewhat reminiscent of a toned-down Lamborghini Urus, while its interior is in line with what Tesla offers in the Model 3 and Model Y, except for the dedicated screen for the instruments. The rear seat on the other hand looks much more luxurious with its tray tables and full-length center console that makes it a four-seater. A model that can seat five passengers will no doubt be offered as well.
