While Ram’s pickups with internal combustion engines are leaders in many aspects, things are a little bit different when it comes to electrification. The F-150 Lightning is here, while the Silverado EV will come soon. On the other hand, Ram’s electric pickup is still in the early stage of development. At this point, the most optimistic predictions suggest that the new model could come by the end of the next year, as the 2024 Ram 1500 EV.
At this point, most details about the 2024 Ram 1500 EV are a mystery. We know only the most basic things about the new pickup, while the specifics are probably yet to come. In any case, the company already came with some pretty big promises, including a class-leading range.
2024 Ram 1500 EV Design
When it comes to base design characteristics, one of the most important things to know is that, although it will feature a familiar nameplate, the 2024 Ram 1500 EV won’t have many things in common with the conventional Ram pickup. Instead, Stellantis is working on a completely new platform, the STLA Frame platform, which will underpin all-electric vehicles in this group.
According to the company, this architecture will also underpin other body-on-frame vehicles in the lineup. This includes heavy-duty pickups, as well as commercial vehicles, including those that will run on fuel cells.
Exterior and Interior Design
Considering that the company still keeps most details a secret, as well as that the new 2024 Ram 1500 EV is probably in the early stage of development, it’s no wonder that these aspects of the new all-electric pickup are still a mystery.
When it comes to the exterior design, we presume that the dimensions will be similar to the gasoline-powered Ram 1500. Still, the styling should be a little bit different. The overall shape may be there but we are pretty sure that the company will implement a new, more dynamic design language, which will bring futuristic details and accentuate the model’s all-electric nature.
Although it’s still early to talk about this, we presume that the all-electric version won’t be as customizable as the standard Ram 1500. Namely, we don’t believe that the Ram 1500 EV could come in a single cab layout, but rather only as a crew cab model, with a generous amount of passenger room in both rows. Also, we count on a different cabin design, with a little bit of a futuristic approach, as well as with a full load of advanced tech features.
2024 Ram 1500 EV Powertrain, Battery, Range
From what we know so far, the 2024 Ram 1500 EV will be built over the new 800-volt architecture, which will ensure fast charging that goes up to 150 kW. On the other hand, we don’t know much about the powertrain and drivetrain setup, though we presume that even the base versions will come with electric motors on both axles. In any case, you may count on different output versions.
When it comes to the battery, we presume that the max capacity will go around 200 kWh. The company claims a max range of 500 miles, which will put this pickup way ahead of key competitors, as the F-150 Lightning can make around 320 miles on a single charge, while the upcoming Silverado EV is expected to be good for up to 400 miles.
2024 Ram 1500 EV Release Date and Price
At this point, we can only speculate about the exact release date but most sources suggest that this launch will happen by the end of the next year. We presume that the starting price would go somewhere between 40.000 and 45.000 dollars.
