The 2024 Ram 1500 Electric Truck is powered by cable, not future fully electric. This concept vehicle previews a new generation of Ram pickup trucks, following in the footsteps of full-size EV vehicles like the Ford F-150 Lightning or Rivian R1T. Like its future EV rivals, the Ram 1500 Electric Truck retains a body-on-frame chassis with pinstriped LED lights that cover a small runway. The Ram 1500 Electric Truck promises plenty of passenger space, adjustable seats, and room for a third row.
It would initially be a pick-up truck, but we will see if it is produced. Ram wants its dual-motor all-wheel drive pickup to have a driving range maximum of 500 miles, and to be able to tow more than 10,000 pounds to compete with other gas-fed cars. Ram says that the idea they have incorporates an 800-volt design and DC fast-charging rates of up to 35 kW. This gives it the same charging abilities as the GMC Hummer Electric Vehicle.
2024 Ram 1500 Electric Truck Redesign
Gas-powered Rams have long had a luxurious interior, with materials of high quality that are superior to their competitors. We do not believe that the conversion to battery power will change that. The Ram 1500 is a fully-electric vehicle, which means that it does not have an engine or other heavy components. This will allow cowboys and contractors ingenious ways to increase storage.
The adjustable seats and storage compartments allow items up to 18 feet in length to fit into the trunk. Full-size trucks are easy to use and operate thanks to the motorized trunk, side steps, and rear tailgate.
Ram says that while it is too early to provide a complete breakdown of engine options or horsepower output, the 1500 Electric Truck will have all-wheel drive and motors at the front and rear of the vehicle. Ram also said that the new chassis of the truck is designed to accommodate larger batteries. This implies that there will be a range of versions, from the least expensive to the most expensive, with the goal being maximum power and range.
The Ram 1500 Electric Truck will outperform both the Ford F-150 Lightning and its maximum 580 horsepower. Ram 1500 Electric Truck will, at least the dual-motor model, have four-wheel steerage for tighter turning in outdoor parking lots or outdoors. The Ram 1500 Electric Truck will also have an adjustable air suspension, which can raise the truck to use it off-road and lower it for highway efficiency and easy loading.
Charger Range, Battery Life, and Capacity
Ram says that while we do not know the exact battery capacity and charging time for the Ram Electric Truck half-ton, the truck’s driving range will be up to 500 miles. This is 200 miles more than the current F-150 Lightning range estimate. Ram claims the concept electric vehicle can reach 100 miles in 10 minutes by using 800-volt DC rapid charging up to 350 kW.
Is It A Gas-Powered, Hybrid, or EV?
The full EV comes with a standard 168-kilowatt-hour battery pack that has a range reported of up to 560 km, and an option 229-kilowatt-hour large battery pack that is targeted to have a range of up to 805 km. Ram claims that the truck’s charging capacity can increase its range by up to 177 km in just 10 minutes using 800-volt DC fast charging at 350 kW.
The performance figures include a time from zero to 96 km/h of 4.4 seconds, 654 horsepower, and 620 lb.-ft. of torque and up to 24 inches for water crossing. The towing capacity is 14,000 lbs and the payload can reach 2,700 lbs. The STLA Frame is a new body-on-frame architecture that was designed for full-size electric cars. It features a body design that integrates the battery pack effectively.
The Ram 1500 REV can charge another Stellantis vehicle or return power to the grid using bi-directional charging. The on-board panel in the bed can deliver up to 7.4 kW while the on-board panel available in the trunk delivers up to 3.66 kW.
Why Does It Matter?
The pickup truck segment in Canada is very important, especially for the Big Three. Ram 1500 REV follows in the footsteps of its Ford and Chevrolet competitors by avoiding any EV design cues, apart from a few badges. It follows the styling of the gas-powered pickups from the brand. The Ram 1500 EV looks bold like its ICE stablemates and the interior will be familiar to Ram truck owners.
What Are Its Competitors?
Ram’s competitors Ford and Chevrolet already sell all-electric trucks, the F-150 Lightning, and the Silverado EV. Rivian R1T is also available, but it’s only in Vancouver. The Ram REV has a new powered trunk that offers 15 cubic feet, the best in class.
