The RAM electric truck is something the company keeps teasing, with a release date of 2024. There are only a few electric trucks on the market, so there’s a need for more options. The electric RAM offers everything you love about the RAM in an environmentally-friendly choice.
What Are the Features of the Electric RAM?
The electric RAM doesn’t look much different from classic RAM trucks with dual cabs. It looks rugged and can handle as much off-roading as any other pickup truck. According to teasers from the manufacturer, it should be able to tow over 10,000 pounds.
The roof is slightly lower, and the windshield is appropriately steeper to make the vehicle more aerodynamic. A dark panel replaces the front grill since it doesn’t get as hot as standard trucks. This design also adds to the aerodynamics of the truck.
How Do You Charge Your Electric RAM?
There are no specifications yet about how you’ll charge your electric RAM. The manufacturer did reveal that it will have fast charging at 150 kW. It’s less than other brands, though, as Tesla has 250 kW and GM has 350 kW.
Since RAM is bringing its electric truck to market so late in the game, it’ll likely use standard charging options. It’ll be easy to charge your truck at home or a public charging station.
You’ll have to wait to see how quickly it charges and how long a full charge will last in terms of mileage range.
If you’re going to drive your electric RAM in areas that don’t have charging stations, you can opt for the gas Range Extender. RAM is creating this system to ensure you’ll never get stuck without a charge. The Range Extender will also help increase energy use when towing heavy cargo.
