Ram revealed during the Stellantis EV day livestream that there will be a 1500 EV that's coming in 2024 and that it will have a range of up to 500 miles.
It's a full size truck from a legacy manufacturer trying to appease their existing customer base. It's also only 3 years away... Expecting a radically different design is unrealistic.Wow, hope this is NOT the shape of the 2024 model because it looks like a 2021 model. At LEAST style it differently Stellantis. Do do the Ford Lightning thing.
To add it's not even a prototype, it's a mock up drawing. Who knows what the final product will look like. Bottom line though is I think there is a large market for EV trucks that look like traditional trucks. It's personally why I like the Rivian over the CT or the Hummer. If I didn't have a strong aversion to Ford I would consider their entrant as well. Looking forward to see more traditional EV trucks from GM and Ram in the years ahead.It's a full size truck from a legacy manufacturer trying to appease their existing customer base.

500 miles is incredible and has me wondering how far off were are from a heavy duty electric pickup.A 500 mile range would be quite the feat considering how little Dodge/Jeep/Ram have been involved in EV technology so far. I'm skeptical to say the least that they can pull that number off.
They also have a hybrid version coming that they're calling the Range Electric Paradigm Breaker (no idea what that actually means).
Four EV platforms, modular propulsion systems, and an EV fleet strategy are all part of a global pivot toward EVs across 14 brands.www.greencarreports.com
As for design, an approach like what Ford did with the Lightning is best.If it looks like my 2019 ram 1500 and has a frunk, I'd choose it over anything else. Only reason I'm here is that ram doesn't have an EV. I don't know if expecting radically different designs or bold moves from Ram is out of the question. Chrysler loves to do weird shit so long as it has a lot of horsepower. They won't let GM have the last laugh at the most absurd EV truck just like they didn't with the TRX.
