Stellantis enters electric truck market with Ram 1500 REV

Despite coming to market after Ford and GM, the Ram 1500 REV promises more miles between charges than its competitors.

Automaker Stellantis is entering the electric pickup truck race with the recently unveiled Ram 1500 REV. It will be a showroom competitor to Ford’s F-150 Lightning and Chevrolet’s Silverado EV.

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, 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.
