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

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 electric vehicle to our customers,” said 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,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive.

The commercial EV’s compact design allows it to easily handle the stop/go and weave in/out typical of narrow urban European streets, getting to the customer’s door faster, all while decreasing pollution and congestion levels. The Mullen-GO is EU standard homologated, certified, and ready for European sale.
