Yep, UQM Tech Spills Beans On CODA, Writes Them Off | Inside EVs.
I LOLed when I saw the title of this:
Electric Vehicle manufacturer Mullen Technologies, Inc. gearing up to compete with Tesla and Faraday Future with expanding group of experts | Mullen Technologies, Inc.
The design of these cars makes ma appreciate Franz.
This company's pretty funny. I spotted Lithium Air Battery | Mullen Technologies, Inc. today.
It currently says this:
Comparison of Battery Technology
Tesla Model S uses:
• 85 kWh battery pack of Lithium Ion Battery
• Battery Weight 1500 lbs
• Drives up to 250 miles/charge
Mullen 700e will use:
• 136 kWh battery pack of Lithium Air Battery
• Battery Weight 800 lbs
• Drive up to 400 miles/ charge
The Mullen 700e
Over $500 million was spent during five years of design, implementation and production of the Mullen 700e.
The 700e is USDOT certified and is being produced and marketed in several countries.
The Mullen 700e can drive up to 200 miles per single charge.
We plan to test our Lithium Air Battery in a Mullen 700e glider to power the car to 400+ miles per single charge.
Mullen’s new level 3 charging allows this battery to go from a zero percent charge to 80% charge within 15 minutes.
The Nano Lithium Air Battery
AMPTRANS Motor Corporation in conjunction with Mullen Technologies has developed the first Nano Lithium Air Battery (NLAB) Technology.
The patent pending Nano Lithium Air Battery has much higher energy densities, providing much more energy output, lighter and safer than lithium ion batteries.
Our flagship product will be the Mullen 700e, the Mullen e7 in 2017, which will feature an artistic body style, made of honeycomb carbon fiber with nanomaterial composite that is strong, durable and light weight. Most important, the Mullen 700e, the Mullen e7 in 2017, will use the state-of-the-art Nano Lithium Air Battery. That is capable of powering all Mullen electric vehicles to 400 miles per single charge. The lightweight new composite material will make all Mullen vehicles run faster and farther. With no emission as compared with gasoline powered cars.
By comparison, currently Tesla Vehicles use a series of 6,831 Lithium Ion batteries, joined together, weighing more than 900 lbs or about 30% of the total car weight to power the car up to 200 miles. The Nano Lithium Air Battery System (NLAB) will be much lighter, weighing only 210 lbs, providing sufficient energy to power the vehicle over 400 miles per single charge.
The video they have on their own site with the professor from Carnegie Mellon University says he hopes to see viable Lithium Air batteries in the 5-10 year timeframe; yet, Mullen claims they and AMPTRANS will have a Lithium Air battery system available for large scale production by mid-2017. There's a bit of a disconnect there.
Have these guys actually shipped the 700e?
They've been putting out a bunch of press releases at Press Releases Archives | Mullen Technologies Inc.. Mullen announces former Fisker and Karma Automotive's Francis McMahon as CTO | Mullen Technologies Inc. made me chuckle given how "great" the Fisker Karma's engineering was.
About | Mullen Technologies Inc. is funny
No, but they did hire another executive. Is that almost as good as having stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night?
Now they're looking to raise $500 million to resurrect the Coda. Except that the 31 kWh battery pack that yielded only 88 miles of range in the original car supposedly will go for 180 miles in the new version.
Mullen tries to raise $500 million to bring Coda’s cheap all-electric car back to life
Hmm... tough choice...
These guys are pretty funny. The keep announcing events at News | Mullen Technologies Inc., including some "corporate retail locations" like Mullen announces corporate retail and wholesale automotive operations in Downey, California | Mullen Technologies Inc..
I found Mullen Auto Sales and from looking at Mullen Auto Sales | View Inventory, they just have random (mostly ICEV) used cars on sale.
Oddly, I found Mullen Technologies announces the opening of its’ new Energy Storage Division in Monrovia, California | Mullen Technologies Inc.
Oddly, per Is the Third Time a Charm for Coda’s Energy Storage Business?, Exergonix bought the twice bankrupt Coda Energy. Seems like it's come full circle? One really has to wonder about these guys and what their real intent is. Is it a front for something else?
Mullen Technologies Inc. | The Affordable Electric Car Company doesn't even show the 700e anymore. They now have a Mullen S Edition or 700 S Edition | Mullen Technologies Inc. with "Availability starting in 2018".
Seems like the 700e, Mullen S edition or whatever is now stillborn. Home - Mullen looks like it's been scrubbed of all their mentions of their comical EVs or possible futures one along w/a lot of those old press releases to make way for the Qiantu K50. Who knows if that'll every arrive in the US and with decent quality or if it's just vaporware?
Any company that uses the terms "synergistic", "leverage" and "solution" in the same sentence to describe itself is full of BS.
