Lost in the shuffle about Stellantis’ EV Day yesterday — and the weird slogans, especially the Dodge eMuscle thing — was another bit of news we weren’t able to get to yesterday.
Ram has an EV truck planned for 2024.
It’s all part of Stellantis’ plan to have EV coverage in every segment by 2030.
The truck will be body-on-frame and Ram is claiming up to 500 miles in range.
Predictably, Ram has released few other details other than a promise to outdo the planned EV trucks from rivals Ford and Chevrolet. That would mean beating Ford’s promises of up to 300 miles of range and up to 10,000 lbs of towing capacity from the upcoming Lightning.
For its part, General Motors says its Silverado electric is targeting 400 miles of range and an on-sale date of 2023 or 2024.
Ram did make mention of on-board power, fast charging of up to 150 kWh, some sort of advanced autonomous driving, and navigation that plans routes based on range and charger ability. A plug-in hybrid was also mentioned.
It’s good to see that no matter how the transition to EVs plays out, the truck wars remain alive and well.
