The new Jeep EV will enter into a comprehensive plan last year for Stellantis, a multinational conglomerate formed last year when Fiat Chrysler merged with France’s PSA Group to electrify the model lines of most of its brands. This includes the EV version of the Ram 1500 pickup and the Dodge electric oiler.
On Tuesday, Stellantis also teased a future Ram 1500 truck with images showing the car’s lighting installation. The image seems to be just a design sketch, leaving open the possibility that Ram has not yet decided on the final look of the future electric truck.
Ram is also producing the ProMaster electric van, which will be included in Amazon’s fleet from 2023, the report said.
Both the Jeep EV and Ram 1500 EV are likely to use the STLA Stellantis platform, which is one of four platforms used by automakers for the future EV lineup, he added.
