FCA US LLC, a member of the Stellantis alliance, has filed a trademark application with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to trademark Ram Revolution. The document, filed on January 27 this year, indicates that the name is supposed to be used for vehicles, in particular pickup trucks. And here a rather obvious conclusion suggests itself.
The most revolutionary model that would really fit the name would be the all-electric variant of the Ram 1500, announced last summer and still referred to by the manufacturer simply as the Ram 1500 BEV (battery electric vehicle). Judging by the first teasers, the design will be significantly different from the current fuel pickup.
The Ram 1500 BEV should take on the Ford F-150 Lightning, Chevrolet Silverado EV, Rivian R1T, GMC Hummer EV and of course the Tesla Cybertruck. At the same time, it can enter the market later than all the main competitors: the presentation was about 2024. However, Mark Koval, CEO of Ram Trucks, is not too worried: according to him, the brand follows its own path in the development of the electric pickup truck, and not in the footsteps of rivals.
There are few technical details about the model yet. It is known that the Ram 1500 BEV will be built on the STLA Frame frame platform. It allows the installation of battery packs with a capacity of up to 200 kilowatt-hours, their charge should be enough for 800 kilometers. By 2025, electrified versions will appear in most Ram models, and in another five years, in general, in general.
