The brand’s first truck to be electric-powered will be the 2024 Ram 1500 EV, which will go on sale the following year. The upcoming truck, according to Ram, will be built using a new traditional body-on-frame construction, providing AWD configuration. They also disclose that the new EV will be capable of towing over 12,000 pounds and the truck will allegedly provide 500 miles of driving range.
The fast-changing assistance and autonomous driving capabilities are further early promises. When the electric Ram 1500 is released, we anticipate that it will compete with the Rivian R1T, Ford F-150 Lightning, and GMC Hummer EV. Of course, Chevrolet Silverado EV is also on the way, so it will be a tough competition.
Ram 1500 EV Powertrain Specs
At this very moment, we don’t have official specs of the new 2024 Ram 1500 EV. However, the automaker promised 500 miles of driving range on a single charge, which is quite a lot. That is 200 miles more than the maximum range offered by the Ford F-150 Lightning when compared to all-electric competitors in the same segment.
The electric Ram 1500 truck will be able to charge at a pace of up to 150 kWh with a DC fast charger, which is very impressive. Although Ram withheld the 1500 EV’s maximum towing capacity, we may anticipate that it will exceed 12,000 pounds. The F-150 Lightning will have a similar towing capacity.
The new 2024 Ram 1500 EV has finally been previewed with some photographs, and we have to agree, that it looks quite futuristic. We adore this truck’s entire body, especially the way it commands attention up front. As we noted, the upcoming model would be devoid of a standard grille and instead have an illuminated RAM emblem set within a decorative panel.
Along, there are highly eye-catching headlamps and daytime running lights. On the lower bumper, which comes in body color, we also noticed a graphic of an hourglass in contrast. The rear section is equally upright and modern, wearing unique taillights. We expect to hear more details in the coming months, including exterior colors, wheel options, and more.
The interior design of the 2024 Ram 1500 EV is is another mystery. The cabin, according to many reports, will be the antithesis of what we saw on the new conventional Ram 1500. Whatever the case, we can anticipate a very spacious and pleasant interior with a capacity for up to five passengers.
The current model with a gasoline engine is one of the top trucks in its class. Consequently, the all-electric variant will likely be much better. As a result, we anticipate that this model will have a wider infotainment touchscreen, more upright materials, and additional standard equipment.
2024 Ram 1500 Price, Release Date
The price of the brand-new 2024 Ram 1500 EV is impossible to predict. The price is not available yet, and it won’t be available anytime soon. Still, the sales will begin next summer, so Ram will provide more details by the end of the year.
