You could argue that Stellantis, more specifically RAM, has been a little late in arriving to the full-electric pickup truck market. Technically they aren’t even in it yet. The company looks to change that Jan. 5 at the Venetian Palazzo Ballroom in Las Vegas. Stellantis CEO Carlos Taveras has been invited to be a keynote speaker at CES. His keynote will also include two global unveils, one of which will be the anticipated Ram 1500 Revolution.
CES, in case you didn’t know, stands for Consumer Electronics Show, and is touted as the most influential tech event in the world. You might think of it as SEMA but for tech. And bigger. Unveiling the Ram 1500 Revolution would mean debuting a battery electric vehicle (BEV) in front of the most tech-fixated crowd on the planet, where it could make the most impact in terms of awareness. The company states it will move past the current line up of competition in terms of towing, range, payload, and charge time. These are bold words coming from a company facing a lineup of competition that includes; Rivian’s R1T (the first official all-electric pickup truck), the GMC Hummer EV, Ford’s F-150 Lightning, the Chevy Silverado EV, and even the Tesla Cybertruck.
The Ram Revolution 1500 will sport an STLA frame that will be able to house battery packs between the frame rails. These packs will allow for a generous range of 500 miles, with something even better called the Range Electric Paradigm Breaker (REPB) truck in the works as well. It’s unclear if Stellantis CEO Carlos Taveras will touch on that project or just stick with the Ram 1500 Revolution come January. Either way, the company’s $35 billion invested into all-electric vehicles between 2021-2025 is starting to show for itself. While we are excited about the Ram Revolution we must note that Taveras will also unveil the Peugeot Inception Concept during his CES keynote as well.
