Ces Las Vegas, Ram is the new reference in electric pickup – Tests and News


It was the most anticipated novel of the Consumer Electronics Show (Ces) in Las Vegas, also because Americans have a bad reputation for light trucks and pick-ups. But it was also the new model most feared by Ford and General Motors who feel the F150 Lightning and Gmc Hummer EV’s positions in the emerging electric segment are shaky.
Obviously we are talking about the Revolution Ram 1500, or rather the production car 1500 Bev that will come from him and will be on the market in 2024. To launch it in the world premiere at the event in Las Vegas, the number of Stellantis Carlos Tavares too. flew to the United States who joined in the presentation Mike Koval Jr., CEO of the Ram brand.

Without half measures – in the understanding of the value of this model – Koval emphasized how, thanks to the production model, Ram will surpass the future versions of electric vehicles from the competition. “The Ram 1500 Revolution Bev Concept is our clearest sign that we’re about to do something incredible at Ram,” he said, “and it highlights where we’re headed on our electrification journey.”
Here’s the design scenario: Ram’s exterior design team set out to transform the pickup truck segment by creating a more modern concept that emphasizes power and performance but is also environmentally friendly. With the result of an outward appearance that is surprisingly ‘brutal’ ie cruel but beautiful.
Building on Ram’s reputation as a leader in off-road, high-performance graphics, the Revolution Bev concept features an integrated front end design with plates and features – such as a power liftgate, pull door handles, steps of the power side el the electric rear stage. – which completes a large list of creations.
New standards for the Ram 1500 Revolution Bev are achieved thanks to Stellantis’ innovative STLA Frame EV platform with new smart safety systems and more powerful small electric motors. This allowed the designers to move the cab forward and increase its length so that this model introduced a new feature: the third row and folding seats.
The ‘tuning fork’ design theme that characterizes the front end is also present in the Ram 1500 Revolution Bev Concept, appearing to extend the length of the dashboard to the main rear hatch.
The dual-screen full touchscreen display offers up to 28 inches of screen real estate as the centerpiece of an interior full of high-tech. Digital rear-view mirrors and augmented reality (AR) (HUD) features state-of-the-art technology on board. A square-top and square-bottom steering wheel gives you upgraded controls, digital screens and an illuminated Ram badge. Designed to accommodate high-capacity power assemblies, this concept offers the potential for future high performance. In the configuration presented at CES, it can be recharged by adding up to 160 kilometers of autonomy in about 10 minutes to a fast range of 800 Volt DC and up to 350 kW.
As part of its mission to provide consumers with a wide and growing range of modern technology, Ram introduces a new inductive charging robot – Ram Charger – that will make home charging as easy as possible.
It recognizes the presence of a car in the box and its recovery needs, it automatically positions itself and the line under the car. Intelligent charging capabilities will enable charging during off-peak hours, providing greater convenience and peace of mind to consumers.
The Ram 1500 Revolution BEV Concept has four-wheel steering with up to 15 degrees of articulation and is designed to provide more maneuverability during slow-motion parking, on rough off-road trails, and enhances the vehicle’s steering response in motion. of speed. Adjustable air suspension allows three different modes: entry / exit, aero, off-road.
More information on the standard version will be released in the coming months. .
