Ram has unveiled a new battery-electric vehicle (BEV) concept at CES 2023, the 1500 Revolution Concept.

The concept highlights the brand’s electrified roadmap going forward, though it isn’t a one-to-one rendition of what we can expect. According to an official release tethered to the reveal, the entire Ram lineup will offer electrified solutions in the years to come, including a production Ram 1500 BEV in 2024.

“The Ram 1500 Revolution BEV Concept is our clearest signal yet that we’re on the precipice of something extraordinary at Ram and points directly to where we’re going on our electrified journey,” said Mike Koval Jr., Ram brand CEO – Stellantis. “At Ram, we’ve redefined what pickup trucks can be, and we will do so again by pushing past what competitors are offering by delivering the best electric pickups on the market.”

Built on the new STLA Frame, a body-on-frame architecture designed specifically for full-sized electric vehicles, the Revolution Concept incorporates two electric drive modules (EDMs) for all-wheel drive capabilities. Larger EDMs can be fitted in the future for potential high-performance uses. And speaking of performance, exact range and battery figures are yet to be disclosed, but we do know that this concept can recoup 100 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes with its 800-volt DC fast charging at up to 350kW. Other features include adjustable air suspension and four-wheel steering, the latter of which adds up to 15 degrees of articulation for better low speed maneuverability and high speed steering response. 

The Revolution Concept is self-described as “brutiful”– that is, “brutal, yet beautiful.” Expect LED lighting all around, including an animated “RAM” badge upfront, surrounded by animated “tuning fork” designs. The doors of the BEV have been designed in a grand saloon-esque way, allowing a larger view into the cabin space without a B-pillar. Moving to the rear, the Revolution Concept sees a multifunction tailgate and larger RamBox. The tailgate can be opened down the middle and extended rearwards, thus expanding bed space by a few more feet.

Interior space is optimized by the “one space environment” ethos adopted by Ram designers, using one continuous space front to back. One of the best examples of this are the third-row jump seats. A power mid-gate allows the unmounting of these jump seats for use of a pass-through from bed to frunk, capable of holding objects up to 18-feet long with the tailgate sealed up. Other interior features include 28 inches of screen space, digital side-view mirrors and an augmented reality (AR) head-up display.

Of course, the Ram 1500 Revolution Concept BEV is just that– a concept; though it does provide insight into Ram’s electrified future. We expect to learn more about Ram’s production electric truck over the next year, so stay tuned to MotorWeek for more updates!
