Stellantis is ready to shift to EV in the coming years

  • The ProMaster EV will be the first one revealed later this year.

  • The Ram 1500 EV will be an important one for Stellantis.

  • At Jeep, Recon and Wagoneer S will be at the center of this electric revolution.


 

According to an article published on Automotive News, Stellantis has clarified its electrification strategy for the coming years. According to the publication, the first major foray will take place in the commercial vehicle segment with the ProMaster EV, scheduled for unveiling no later than this year, before the end of 2023.

The truck division will also tackle the fully electric pickup segment late next year, with a 2025 model. The Ram 1500 REV will already have fierce competition from Ford with the F-150 Lightning, GM with its trio of pickups (Chevrolet Silverado EV, GMC Sierra 1500 EV and GMC Hummer EV), Rivian with its R1T and potentially Tesla with the Cybertruck, but with strong demand from consumers, the electric Ram 1500 could rapidly become a high-selling vehicle.

And that’s not all, because a midsize pickup – is it the return of Ram Dakota ? – could be joining the party somewhere in 2026. This future midsize pickup should offer both electric and gasoline engines.

As for Fiat, the 500e city car will return to North America, possibly as a 2024 model.

At Dodge, the emphasis will be on power and performance. In short, the Daytona SRT concept already set the tone. Now it remains to be seen what other flavors the American brand is planning. Beyond the Charger and Challenger, Dodge will have to think about its utilitarian offering.

The Chrysler division could be reborn with this electric crossover scheduled for 2025. And with the aim of going entirely electric by 2028, we could well see the arrival of a minivan without a combustion engine under the hood.

As for Jeep, the Wrangler-inspired Recon will convince off-road enthusiasts, while the Wagoneer S will be the vehicle of choice for those who prefer tarmac daily. You can also expect a plug-in hybrid variant of the big Wagoneer.

Among the brands distributed in North America, there’s still Alfa Romeo, which will no longer be presenting vehicles with combustion engines. The recent Tonale is the last one planned. The shift to electric power should be completed by 2027 for the Italian brand.

Clearly, Stellantis won’t be 100% electric in 2030 on this side of the pond, but the aim is to get there on the European continent. Nevertheless, the forthcoming launch of all these new electric models will greatly help the Group’s brands on this side of the Atlantic.
