Stellantis is joining the electric pickup race later than its rivals, but executives say this has given the automaker time to gauge them and work to surpass them in key areas such as range, towing, payload and charge time.
The 500-mile range for the REV’s 229-kWh battery pack and its targeted 14,000 pounds of towing capacity exceed what’s on the market now. Chevrolet is going after 20,000 pounds of towing for the work truck variant of its 2025 Silverado EV pickup.
Ram said it is aiming for the REV to deliver a 0 to 60 mph time of 4.4 seconds, 654 hp and 620 pound-feet of torque. It’s designed to ford up to 24 inches of water and carry a maximum payload of 2,700 pounds.
Koval has said the REV is a “direct descendant” of the edgy Revolution concept truck that debuted in January at CES in Las Vegas. This influence is evident on the REV’s face, with its “tuning fork” lighting scheme and lit “RAM” logo.
The body shape, however, is closer to its conventional gasoline counterparts.
