Mullen Automotive, an electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer, announced a new European purchase order for 40 Mullen-GO urban delivery vehicles with Switzerland-based Antidoto SA, a commercial upfitter whose key focus is on-demand food delivery companies.

The initial purchase order is valued at 440,000 dollars.

Antidoto SA specializes in the design and sale of pizza ovens for delivery vehicles and installs warming ovens in various types of vehicles.

The company currently produces around 500 ovens per year, which are integrated and sold with a specific vehicle.

Antidoto SA will initially order 40 Mullen-GO units for 2024 and projects a minimum order of 180 cars for 2025 to meet anticipated growing demand for zero emission EVs.

The vehicles will initially be deployed in Switzerland with planned expansion into other parts of Europe.

“We strongly believe that a collaboration with Mullen could not only meet our current needs, but also boost our production capacity by offering an EV to our customers,” states Milijana Miletic, Director of Antidoto SA.

“As part of our global expansion, we are looking at all segments of urban delivery opportunities, including hot and cold on-demand delivery, which is perfectly suited for the Mullen-GO,” says David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive.

The Mullen-GO is the Company’s urban commercial electric delivery vehicle, which is designed to bridge the gap between the growing demand for quick deliveries and space constraints in dense cities throughout Europe.

The commercial EV’s compact design allows it to easily handle the stop/go and weave in/out typical of narrow urban streets, getting to the customer’s door faster.

This model is approved and certified according to European Union standards and is ready for sale in the region.
