Highlights 

  • Mullen Automotive, Inc. (NASDAQ: MULN) jumped more than 35% on Tuesday after announcing impressive test results from its polymer solid-state battery. 
  • Brea, California-based Mullen Automotive is an emerging electric vehicle company. 
  • It has a market capitalization of US$445.5 million.

The Mullen Automotive, Inc. (NASDAQ: MULN) stock jumped 35.64% to US$1.3106 at 10:40 am ET on Tuesday after announcing impressive test results from its polymer solid-state battery. The batteries are used in EVs, wearables devices, pacemakers, etc. 

The test results from the Battery Innovation Center (BIC) in Indiana show Mullen’s solid-state polymer battery cell can deliver 343.28 Ah (ampere-hour) at 4.2 volts, far exceeding the previously stated value of 300 Ah at 3.7 volts. 

The results are in line with the previous results from EV Grid, which produces batteries and battery management systems for vehicles. In EV Grid’s testing, the battery cell was rated at 300 Ah at 3.7 volts, with the battery yielding 343 Ah at 4.3 volts. 

The company said both the results show a better-than-expected test tolerance level. Solid-state batteries charge faster, come in small sizes, and offer high energy density and safety than lithium-ion cell batteries.   

Mullen said the battery cell would continue to be tested to understand its overall capabilities and performance, said Ben Wrightsman, president and CEO of Battery Innovation Center.  

The CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive, David Michery, said, “The battery has performed exceptionally well, and I’m pleased with the results from BIC in Indiana.”

Its net loss came in at US$32.57 million for the March quarter of 2022, compared to the net loss of US$9.3 million in the same quarter the previous year.

Bottom line:

Analysts expect a 150-kilowatt hour solid-state fully-charged battery can deliver up to a 600-mile range for Mullen’s compact SUV. Hence, they say the test results will positively impact the market.
