The rising manufacturer of electric vehicles Mullen Automotive has announced the results of the tests carried out on the technology recently taken over by a joint venture, which notably improves the current performances of the EV, increasing their autonomy. The Energy Management Module (“EMM”) technology substantially increases the autonomy and the efficiency of any present EV battery. The specific tests executed by Element on a large-size OEM electric vehicle have led to a calculated autonomy increase from 269 to 431 miles, corresponding to a 60% efficiency increment.
Furthermore, the EMM technology has been tested by Mullen Automotive engineers on the EV Cargo van in Class 1 of the company by the factory at Troy, Michigan. The results have shown an autonomy increase exceeding 75% for the 42-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which corresponds to an autonomy estimated by EPA of 186 miles, with very low additional cost and mass. An application of temporary patent for the technology has been registered.
“Seeing the previous EMM test results conducted by Element, along with Global EVT testing, and correlating that with testing by our engineers, we believe this technology is a perfect fit for Mullen’s EV product lineup as well as the advancement in EV technology for the overall automotive industry,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive. “Mullen Advanced Energy Operations plans on licensing this technology to anyone who uses an electric vehicle.”
