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 800-kilometre range for the REV’s 229-kWh battery pack and its targeted 6,350 kilograms of towing capacity exceed what’s on the market now. Chevrolet is going after 9,070 kilograms 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-100 km/h time of 4.4 seconds, 654 hp and 620 pound-feet of torque. It’s designed to ford up to 24 inches (63 centimeters) of water and carry a maximum payload of 1,225 kilograms.
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.
