We’ve double-checked the calendar and it still says February 8, 2022, and yet Ram is eager to tease an electric truck it will have on sale in 2024. In fact, the shadowy official renderings depict a concept that will preview the road-going EV truck, so better arm yourself with a lot of patience. With the GMC Hummer EV and the Rivian R1T out while the Ford F-150 Lighting is inching closer, the 1500 BEV will be fashionably late.
It will likely arrive after the recently unveiled Chevy Silverado EV, and provided it’s not postponed once again, after the Cybertruck as well. To mark the release of new teaser images, the company is launching RamRevolution.com where it will provide details and visuals about the electric truck’s development. In addition, customer input is accepted, so your brilliant idea might just make it to production.
Over the course of 12 months, Ram will organize a tour by attending various meets with truck customers to pick their brains about what they would like to see in their EV pickup. The feedback will be put to good use in the 1500 BEV, following the concept’s debut before 2024.
As previously announced, the zero-emissions truck will utilize the STLA Frame platform good for batteries as large as 200+ kWh. The largest pack is going to have enough juice for 805 kilometers (500 miles) in a truck featuring a four-wheel-drive system courtesy of two electric motors.
By the middle of the decade, Ram will have electrified most trucks ahead of 2030 when all of them will get the greener tech. The STLA Frame architecture will underpin a variety of other models, including commercial vehicles as well as fullsize SUVs.
As to when the concept teased here will debut, Ram hasn’t mentioned. However, with 2024 being the market launch, we could see the concept by the end of this year or early 2023.
