    Key Points:

    1. FCA CEO Mike Manley announced that an electric pickup will be joining the lineup.

    2. Other than an ambiguous release date, no details were provided.

    3. It will compete with the Rivian R1T, Tesla Cybertruck, Ford F-150 electric, and more.


    Not surprisingly, another electric pickup truck is set to be released soon. This time it's from FCA's Ram and is expected to be based on the 1500 pickup's platform. Seeing as most upcoming electric pickup trucks start at around $70,000, the Ram will probably land somewhere around there as well. The only real surprise is the 12 mpg 700+ horsepower Ram TRX that was just released - it seems like Ram is having a bit of an identity crisis.

    According to the Detroit Free Press, Manley said ""stay tuned for a little while" during the earnings call. The FCA's EV lineup isn't very big at the moment, with the only electric models available including the Jeep Wrangler 4xe, Chrysler Pacifica, Maserati GranTurismo and GranCabrio, the MC20 supercar, and now the Ram EV.

    Electric truck manufacturers like Ford, Hummer, Rivian, Tesla, Bollinger and Lordstown are ahead of Ram on this one. I would expect the electric Ram pickup to be on sale for the 2023-2024 model year, with details coming in a few months. As far as pricing, $65,000-$75,000 is about where I would expect it to land.

    • As long as it looks better than the Cyber truck it's okay in my book

    • I don't REALLY hate EVs like some folks do, but I will hate the RAM EV. I know I will. Soon I'll never see one of those 'Yeah it's got a Cummins' vanity plates again! :-(

      • Of course it is. Because real truck still buy them. And the Cummins is only in the heavy duty.
