The electric vehicle space is experiencing meteoric growth right now. Across the entire automotive industry, we are seeing a level of innovation and interest the likes of which we have never seen. One of the most interesting aspects of this boom is that startups are getting a chance to shine in ways they haven’t before. For California-based startup Mullen, this surge in interest served as the perfect time for them to make waves in the EV space by introducing their first-ever crossover, the FIVE.

While many EVs garnered attention at the Los Angeles International Auto Show this year, Mullen arguably stole the show after the FIVE became a finalist for the LA Auto Show ZEVA award for Top Sports Utility EV SUV, alongside industry heavyweights Lincoln and Rivian. The result is surprising only until you look at the FIVE and its specifications. The Mullen FIVE has a sleek design that toes the line between aggressive and elegant. Performance-wise, the FIVE isn’t to be trifled with. It features an impressive estimated range of 325 miles and a fast charge from 0 to 80% (260 miles of range) in just 21 minutes. Furthermore, the FIVE has a speedy 0-60mph time of just 3.2 seconds and an electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph. Powering this futuristic ride is a 95 kWh Lithium-Sulfur battery pack, which has five times more energy density than their Lithium-ion counterparts. The Mullen FIVE impresses on the inside as well, featuring Luxury interiors with customizable seating configurations. From a technological standpoint, the FIVE comes loaded with tech. And best of all, the car is fully designed, engineered, and manufactured in the USA.

The FIVE sports Multi LED intelligent LIVE screen technology that listens and reacts to your movement. Furthermore, Mullen stated that the FIVE will feature recognition software that personalizes the car’s infotainment and climate to your preferences. The Mullen FIVE will retail starting at $55,000, and customers can reserve one now with a $100 deposit.

Purchase: $55,000+
