Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ: MULN), an emerging electric vehicle (“EV”) manufacturer, is partnering with Qiantu Motors to launch the DragonFLY K50 in the Americas. As part of an exclusive licensing agreement, Qiantu Motors and affiliated companies granted MULN the North and South American IP and distribution rights allowing assembly and distribution. The announcement noted that Mullen will finalize vehicle engineering in compliance with U.S. regulations with final assembly planned for its Indiana-based manufacturing facility. The EV supercar will be sold under the Mullen GT & GTRS brands with performance specs anticipated to include going from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 1.95 seconds and with a top speed of more than 200 mph, thus ensuring its supercar status. Mullen noted that it will commence the reengineering and redesigning modifications, which will be in line with Mullen’s vehicle design language currently found in the Mullen FIVE and Mullen FIVE RS. “This agreement with Qiantu is an important milestone for the company,” said Mullen CEO and chair David Michery in the press release. “Not only does it settle a long outstanding dispute between our respective companies but also presents the opportunity to fulfill my vision for a supercar that would rival some of the best supercars in the world. Since day one, we have received overwhelming positive feedback for this vehicle, including our original debut at the 2019 New York Auto Show and the Indy 500 in May 2019. We are excited to start the GT and GTRS programs on March 20, 2023.”
