The All-Electric Ram 1500 Truck’s Evolutionary Design : Will Reportedly Offer a Range Extender

Ram 1500 Trucks – Ram will launch the all-electric pickup in 2024. The brand will have to design it, and the teasers reveal how that is changing. These new images show a truck that is different than what we have seen, although the teasers for earlier concepts were not. These new images reveal the Ram 1500 BEV’s evolution over earlier designs and they look promising.

All-Electric Ram 1500 Trucks New Design

While the new teasers reveal little, they do not reveal all that much. The good bits are still hidden. The images do reveal a part of the truck’s lighting signature. The front daytime running lights have been split into two pieces, enclosing the illuminated RAM nameplate at the middle of the grille. Similar styling is found at the rear with the taillights running into the tailgate, flanked by another illuminated RAM badge.

The all-electric Ram 1500BEV looks like a truck with large fenders, a bulging roof, and a rough windshield. The Ram’s styling is still a bit early so it’s hard to predict how it will compare to the F-150 Lightning or Silverado EV. Ford favored a traditional truck design, while the Chevy Silverado EV tries to not look like a GMC Hummer EV. The futuristic-looking Tesla Cybertruck is also available. Ram will not begin production of 1500 BEVs until 2024. There are many things that can be changed with the design. Ram is also looking for input on the design of the truck. Ram plans to hold several events with truck owners in order to learn what they think about an electric pickup. This feedback could have significant consequences for the production version of the truck, which might not be available until next year.

Performance

The truck’s exact details are still unknown. We expect Ram to place the 1500 BEV on Stellantis’ STLA Frame platform. Stellantis will then use this platform to support several models, including full-size SUVs and commercial trucks. The truck should be able to travel 500 miles (805 km) on its dedicated electric architecture. This platform can accommodate batteries with capacities from 159-kilowatt hours to more than 200 kWh.
