At one point, just before the PSA-FCA merger to form Stellantis, it sounded like the Ram brand didn’t have an electric pickup truck in the works. Then came the GMC Hummer EV. Then came the Ford F-150 Lightning. Then cam the Chevrolet Silverado EV. Eventually, Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares broke the silence, claiming an electrified Ram truck was imminent. Today, we learn a bit more, as the 2024 Ram 1500 BEV (battery electric vehicle) was teased during Stellantis EV Day.

2024 Ram 1500 BEV: First Details

This 2024 Ram 1500 BEV is likely riding on what Stellantis is calling the STLA Frame architecture, one of four new battery electric vehicle platforms. The frame is briefly pictured in the video above, holstering a floor of batteries between the rails. Like the Ford F-150 Lightning, the platform of the STLA Frame will allow the Ram 1500 EV to maintain its body-on-frame architecture, which is superior to unibody structures for standard-issue truck work such as towing and hauling. Stellantis claims that the battery technology and the platform will be good enough for 200 kWh and 500 miles of range, with capabilities of charging up to 20 miles per minute.

The 2024 Ram 1500 BEV looks to deliver on on the power, performance and capability. Three things that truck customers are unwilling to trade in when it comes to switching to electric. Among other customer-driven features will be onboard power, aka a generator, as seen at the 2:55 mark of the video. The teaser photo of the electric Ram pickup appears as well, which we went ahead and altered for a better idea of the truck’s design. The watermarked photo is at the top of the article.

Future Plans For Ram

That’s not all. Ram has something in the works called the REPB truck, or “Range Electric Paradigm Breaker” truck. The project is very locked down at the moment, but judging by its name, there’s a strong likelihood that the Ram REPB truck has something to do with the potential of solid state batteries, as well as reduced ownership costs.

The Ram brand plans on expanding its electric vehicle offerings into a full portfolio of pickup trucks and commercial work vehicles. And by late 2021, Ram will even debut a hydrogen fuel-cell powered ProMaster van. In the photo below, brand frontman Mike Koval can be seen standing in front of a quintet of veiled vehicles that are in store for us all.

Stay tuned for more.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
