The Chinese sports car idea did not work, and now the American Mullen is trying to compete with the Porsche Taycan and Tesla Model S. Its power is 1000 horsepower and accelerates to 100 km/h in two seconds, which makes the Five RS a big task.
Americans know the name Mullen Automotive, which until now imported Chinese commercial vehicles into the United States. The Mullen GT, which was based on a Chinese Qiantu K50 sports car, was supposed to be a huge success, but contrary to plans, they were not able to start distribution in America until today. Now they are trying again with a more promising car.
As a surprise, an all-new model was unveiled at this year's CES, and the Five RS was aimed squarely at high-end electric cars. The 4.9-metre-long, sporty-looking five-door is not just another off-road recreational vehicle, but
It wants to be a competitor to big guns like the Porsche Taycan and Tesla Model S.
The parameters of the Mullen Five RS are, at least on paper, very promising.
Its electrical system is 800 volts, like Porsche's, which enables lightning-fast charging and high performance. Two electric motors have a total power of 1,000 horsepower, so the car accelerates to 100 km/h in two seconds and can reach speeds of 270 km/h.
There was no mention of its range, but with a 100 kWh battery, it can't be that bad.
Mullen's designers focused more on sportiness, so the Five RS has 21-inch wheels at the front and 22-inch Brembo brakes at the rear.
Mullen has made a huge commitment to this car, and as early as 2025, the Five RS will be serially produced at the American factory where the strikingly angular Bollinger SUVs are also made, since this brand is also owned by the company. If they can overcome the scandals surrounding the company and FIVE becomes a reality
In addition to Fisker and Lucid, Tesla will have another American competitor, Mullen.
