Electric Ram 1500 reported to have 500-mile range

The 2024 Ram Revolution is said to ride on a new platform and will have fast charging up to 150 kW

Ford was first with the introduction of an electric pickup truck last spring, but it wasn’t long before the 2022 F-150 Lightning was joined by leading competitors GM and Ram, who have since announced battery-powered work horses of their own slated to hit the market before 2024.

Now that these alternatively powered machines are no longer theoretical, questions are centering on performance and range, two primary concerns in construction applications.

Anyone who uses a truck for work naturally wonders about the power of an electric pickup compared to its diesel-powered brethren, not to mention how far it can go between charges.

The answer is 500 miles. At least for the 2024 Ram 1500 EV, which will be the first all-electric version of the brand’s regular half-ton pickup. Ford’s new F-150 Lightning has a maximum range of 300 miles and the GMC Hummer EV can go 350 miles.

Ram, now part of Stellantis, claims its EV truck will be able to tow more than 10,000 lbs.

There aren’t many details currently available about what reports say will be called the Ram Revolution, but the truck is said to ride on a new platform and will have fast charging up to 150 kW.
