Ram 1500 Revolution concept to transform into production truck model in 2024


The new concept by Ram gives us a much clearer picture of what is to come with the brand’s electric pick-up offerings 

Stellantis-owned Ram Truck wants to redefine the segment and its new electric ute concept will help the brand get there. 

Ram has pulled the covers off its Ram 1500 Revolution BEV concept truck at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, but the brand says that a production model will follow in 2024. 

Ram will likely target those electric pick-ups already in development and first-stage production, such as the Ford F-150 Lightning, Rivian R1T and the Hummer EV

The Revolution BEV concept will debut several features that are likely to make it into a production version, such as a middle split tailgate, a dual-electric motor drivetrain and four-wheel steering. 

Stellantis has said that more information about a production version of the Ram BEV will become available in the coming months. 

What you should know about the Revolution BEV concept

The Ram BEV concept rides upon Stellantis’ STLA Frame platform and utilises dual electric motors. While power and torque figures or battery size have not been disclosed, the BEV concept is claimed to be capable of 800-volt fast charging up to 350kW. 

Though unconfirmed in this application, Stellantis claims that STLA Frame – one of four STLA BEV platforms being rolled out – is capable of up to 800 kilometres of electric-driven range. 

Ram says that space has been made for larger and more powerful electric drive modules (EDM) to be fitted in the future. This likely means that a TRX high performance model could follow in the years after production begins.

Four-wheel steering and adjustable air suspension are standard on the concept, however these features are very likely to carry over for the production version.

Other standard equipment includes huge 35-inch tyres mated to 24-inch wheels, an illuminated front grille with large Ram lettering and a smattering of LED lights inside and out. 

There are plenty of powered features, too, including flush door handles, a powered tailgate, power side steps and a power rear step.

Cabin is not likely to look this futuristic for the production model

Inside the cabin of the Ram BEV concept, it might seem a little too futuristic to be a production model, however the 28-inch screen, digital side-view mirrors and head-up display could make it into the final version of the Ram 1500 BEV.  

Interestingly, Ram has also developed an inductive robot charger called Ram Charger that will make its debut at CES. The robot works by sensing the vehicle and then aligning itself under the vehicle for quick charging.

Will an electric Ram come to Australia?

It’s far too early to say as even the Ford F-150 Lightning has not been confirmed for the Australian market – and it is much further down the line in terms of development and production.  

While there is clearly a market for large-size pickup trucks in Australia, it’s likely that brands such as Ram, Chevrolet and Ford will work to bring their internal combustion cars to Australia first and foremost. Electrification of truck models for Australia is still likely years away.
