report ram to show 1500 revolution ev concept at ces

Early November isn't the only time the automotive world looks towards Las Vegas.

Sin City finds itself back in the spotlight every January for the Consumer Electronics Show. Automakers have long had a significant presence at CES, and now a report suggests Ram will be taking the wraps off of an EV concept there.

This is mildly surprising, given the LA Auto Show takes place in a little over two weeks. But not that surprising, given the history of automakers doing reveals at CES. Not to mention Ram can separate itself from the LA show news cycle.

The concept will bow 18 months or more before the production truck does. The production truck will use the STLA Frame electric platform. The battery pack is reported to be somewhere between 159 and 200+ kWh and the range is expected to be up to 500 miles.

We'll know more in January.

    I doubt even 200 kWh could make it go 500 miles.

    For those two battery sizes, I'd expect a range of 300 to 450 miles under ideal conditions. Half that if towing a full load, less than that if speeding or cold climate.

    A 2024 reviewer will be shocked that he only got 130 miles while towing 7000 lbs through a mountain pass at 70 mph in February.

    Time to resurrect the Ramcharger name.

    I'm listening.

    Batteries over 200kWh have a chance of towing my 1kWh/mile-ish trailer some distance. It's at least close enough to look at the stats.

    My current ICE-powered hybrid truck goes about 225 miles on a tank of gas while towing, with a planning distance of about 200 miles.

    An EV-powered towbeast would need to do do the same while towing this same trailer.

    The first batch of EV trucks are suitable for the suburban cowboy types, which is a very large segment - even if nobody wants to admit they're part of it. Mayhaps the second round will be suitable to replace my towbeast? We shall see!

    I'm thrilled with my EV family car / DD. Now it's time to replace the rest of the fleet!
