RAM Electric Pickup Truck

What is the RAM 1500 EV Pickup Truck

Stellantis, the company formed by the merger of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and the PSA Group, has announced plans to introduce a new RAM 1500 all-electric pickup in 2024. The commitment to creating and exceeding the competitors for an electrified truck is their objective. The focus for the RAM 1500 electrified vehicle is to exceed customers' expectations for power, range, and productivity.

It is expected for the new RAM 1500 EV to have about a 500-mile range utilizing large 159-200 kWh battery packs with a towing capacity of more than 10,000 pounds. With the anticipated fast charging 150 kWh speed with autonomous driving capabilities, the RAM 1500 EV positions itself as a strong contender in the EV space. The RAM 1500 EV introduction will lag behind the Ford 1500 and Chevy Silverado EVs, which may not necessarily be bad if the competitors make an introduction misstep.

The RAM 1500 will be built on the STLA Frame platform designated for four different battery electric vehicles in the future. These vehicles will underpin the development of the projected 14 cars in its brand.

It is only a guestimate what the price will be for the yet RAM 1500 EV, what optional will be available for trim, or what equipment will be standard or options. The popular opinion is that the RAM 1500 EV will have a suggested list price between $42,000 and $45,000.

The exact specifications for the RAM 1500 EV are not known at this time. Although the RAM 1500 EV has promised to have greater towing capacity than other EV competitors, since the official maximum towing capacity for currently produced EV trucks is around 10,000 pounds, the RAM 1500 EV would be expected to have a higher towing capacity.

There are not many details on the RAM 1500 EV charging times or battery size at this time. RAM indicated the truck will have a range of about 500 miles, which would be 200 miles further than the long-range F-150 Lightning. It is expected for the RAM 1500EV to incorporate a DC fast charging device with the ability to charge up to 150 kWh.
