Last week, it was announced that Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares would be giving the keynote speech at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2023 in January at the Venetian Palazzo Ballroom in Las Vegas. Among the highlights of his speech, will be the unveiling of not one, but two Stellantis battery-electric vehicle (BEV) concept vehicles.
One of those is the highly-anticipated Ram Revolution Concept: a preview of what the Ram brand has in store for its upcoming Ram 1500 BEV pickup.
Later that same day, Ram quietly released an unlisted YouTube link to those who signed up on the Ram Revolution website, to be in the know. The 1-minute, 4-second video gives us some minor hints from the Ram Design Studio in Auburn Hills, about the new concept truck in its clay form.
The video highlights many of the design talents we know and love from the Auburn Hills design studio, like Ralph Gilles (Head of Stellantis Design), Mark Trostle (Vice President of Ram and Mopar Design), Ryan Nagode (Chief Design – Ram Interior Studio), Lou Gasevski (Lead Design Manager for Ram), amongst others.
In the short video, we get some teasers of its design in clay form and even a couple of quick shots of what appear to be scaled-down models in the wind tunnel.
Now, for those who are skeptical of its design remember, that this is only a concept vehicle to highlight some features that may and may not be coming to the actual production truck that is scheduled to arrive in 2024.
Early prototype mules are already running around the Auburn Hills campus, as we showed you in a post a few weeks ago. The production vehicle will be based on an evolution of the current fifth-generation Ram 1500 (DT) architecture dubbed STLA Frame. It should share the independent rear suspension (IRS) design from the popular Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer (WS) models and offer a range of up to 500 miles according to what the automaker promised us at its EV Day Presentation in 2021.
The new Ram Revolution Concept BEV will make its official debut a month from today, on Thursday, January 5th, 2023.
