Stellantis says the new truck will enter production in Q4 of 2024 — marking the company’s first all-electric offering in the U.S.
Paul Eisenstein, publisher of automotive website TheDetroitBureau.com, says the battery-powered Ram could have the longest range of any electric truck in the market, with a promised 500 miles between charges.
“It’s actually making it the second longest range of any vehicle on the market,” says Eisenstein. “The one that does even better is a 520 mile Lucid Air Dream Range Edition and that is a sleek, relatively light sedan.”

Eisenstein predicts Stellantis may initially trail Ford and General Motors on the EV market, having invested in the technology later than its Detroit-based counterparts.
“If Stellantis can come up with some great products, I think being a little late to market may not be a problem,” says Eisenstein.
According to Eisenstein, Ram has already begun work on a second, yet-to-be announced electric truck.
