Our best look yet at the Ram EV truck
Stellantis confirms Ram Electric coming in 2024
At risk of falling behind Ford and General Motors, Ram has just given us a better look at what its own electric pickup will look like. The latest renderings show an extremely futuristic look, but one that’s in keeping with Ram’s current aggressive styling.
Teased previously as the Ram Revolution (it’s an EV, get it? they winked), the Ram 1500 EV gets big converging LED accent lights up front, a bulging hood that looks like it has a Ford GT-style extractor vent despite not having an engine, and a cab that’s as sleek as the old Chrysler Cab Forward concepts.
At the back is a horseshoe LED brake light wrapping around the entire rear of the truck. In the middle, you’ll find some sweet box-flare fenders and a bed that looks like the return of the stepside in proportion.
The Electric Ram will enter production in 2024, which puts it closer to the Ford F-150 Lightning and GMC Hummer EV than you’d expect. Both of those EVs were revealed quite early in the process, with this one slightly later.
Ram will build the 2024 pickup on the STLA Frame EV platform. As previously announced, that platform is designed for commercial vans, SUVs, and trucks, and will be able to offer up to 500 miles (810 km) of range.
During a presentation about the truck, Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares said it will beat all competitors for range, towing, and payload. We’ve also seen hints that it will offer a gas engine as a range extender, likely helpful for those doing significant towing.
Expect to see a more realistic-looking production truck in the coming months.
