Look Out Tesla Cybertruck, RAM Has A 500-Mile Pickup Truck Too

•, By: Mark Kane

During the Stellantis EV Day 2021, RAM teased an upcoming fully electric pickup truck, which might get up to 500 miles (800 km) of range. Let's take a look.

First of all, Stellantis intends to use four platforms (see details), including one body on frame type - STLA Frame. It will be equipped with battery packs from 159 kWh to over 200 kWh to provide a range of up to 800 km/500 miles.

Depending on the model/version, the STLA Frame can be equipped with EDM #2 (125-180 kW) or EDM #3 (150-330 kW) electric drive modules. Two of such units (one in front and one in rear) would provide a system output of 500-600 kW and all-wheel drive.

This alone provides us with general boundaries of what we can expect from the RAM's electric pickup.

This new vehicle will be a full-size battery-electric pickup truck, called RAM 1500 BEV. Production will start in 2024.

By 2025, the company intends to offer a fully electrified solution in the majority of its segments, and in all segments no later than 2030, which means multiple electric trucks and vans.
