The trademark filling suggests that the company has settled on a name.
It's already common knowledge that Stellantis is getting to work on an electrified Ram 1500 EV truck to take on the likes of the Rivian R1T and Ford F-150 Lightning. CarBuzz has discovered a new submission to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and subsequent filings with the Mexican trademark office (IMPI) and Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) from the company, giving us an idea of what this product might land up being called.
As of January 27, 2022, Stellantis has officially filed for the rights to the Ram Revolution moniker with the intent to cover the categories of motor vehicles belonging to the passenger truck segment. This is just a filing for the term, which means we are yet to see the moniker in a font of style as designed by the manufacturer.
Ram announced its EV truck just six months ago with a planned market introduction date of 2024. This means that it would be entering the arena at a later stage than the current set of competitors but it appears that this is not something that fazes the company. Ram boss Mike Koval is insistent that the final product will be beyond what we see from the current set of EV trucks as it promises more range, power, and productivity.
It is already understood that the upcoming Ram EV will employ the group's upcoming STLA Frame body-on-frame architecture, which will also be dedicated to additional planned trucks, SUVs, and commercial vehicles. Using this, we can expect it to offer a range of 500 miles on a single charge thanks to a battery with a proposed embedded energy figure of at least 159 kWh.
As the Ram Revolution moniker suggests, the EV truck is expected to feature a revolutionary design compared to its current language. The initial teaser which was refined by our speculative render suggests that the new model will embrace the modern trend of flowing lines and LED lighting. The blocky silhouette will also be a thing of the past thanks to a sweeping C-pillar design.
Despite this model seeing a late entry to what is destined to be a highly competitive market, Ram feels confident that its upcoming product will win the hearts of many consumers. It aims to do this by offering a product that embraces the modern age of electrification without compromising on core capability and durability attributes which are expected from your average truck owner.
