Shares of Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN) stock are in full focus for two main reasons today.
First, MULN stock is now trading on a split-adjusted basis above $1, which satisfies the Nasdaq minimum price requirement. The electric vehicle (EV) company announced yesterday that it would enact a 1-for-25 reverse stock split, effective as of today. The reverse split was previously approved at Mullen’s last special meeting of stockholders.
Second, Mullen has released the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) for the Mullen ONE and Mullen THREE, or the Class 1 EV cargo can and the Class 3 EV cab chassis truck, respectively. Both vehicles are eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit.

Mullen notes that there are other state incentives for the THREE as well, such as the California HVIP program. The program provides an up to “$45,000 incentive for commercial Class 3 products.”
CEO David Michery said the following in the news release:
“As more fleets focus on their sustainability goals addressing climate change, the net price points of our Mullen commercial products make this an easy choice and help accelerate their transition to electric […] With both vehicles qualifying for the $7,500 federal tax credit, their Class 1 EV Cargo Van acquisition cost will reduce to $27,000 and Class 3 EV Cab Chassis Truck will reduce to $61,000.”
