The Ram Revolution will wait until January 2023.
The electric pickup niche is growing steadily. We still have no Tesla Cybertruck, but we do have the Rivian R1T, the Ford F-150 Lightning, and soon enough, the Silverado EV and GMC Sierra EV. And soon, we'll be welcoming the arrival of Ram's electric pickup, which we were expecting to see unveiled this month at the LA Auto Show. Ram previously confirmed that the vehicle would be presented before the end of the year, but now that timeline has changed.
Ram has not explained why the vehicle has been delayed, but we can only assume that Stellantis has too much on its plate right now. The automaker has simply supplied another shadowy teaser image of the electric pickup and said that the Ram Revolution BEV Concept "is a visionary roadmap and a glimpse into the future."
Ram boss Mike Koval has promised that the electric truck will overdeliver in terms of the "core attributes" required by truck buyers: "More and more truck intenders are open-minded to the idea of electrification in their pickups, but they're not willing to sacrifice our most core attributes that make a truck a truck, like towing, like hauling, and the future, range and charge time."
Koval has also promised that the Ram electric pickup will "push past what others have announced." That means the Ram EV should be more powerful and go further than what Ford and General Motors have revealed. The F-150 Lightning's top trim offers 580 horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque, while GM's Chevy Silverado EV and GMC Sierra EV each produce 754 hp and 785 lb-ft of torque.
Perhaps the arrival of these GM products has prompted Ram to improve its truck so that it can keep its promise of beating rivals in all key metrics. Whatever the reason, it's clear that the electric truck segment is becoming more competitive, with or without the arrival of the Cybertruck.
