Ram unveiled its electric truck concept on Tuesday, which is scheduled to debut at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on Jan. 5.
The Ram 1500 Revolution BEV Concept was scheduled to debut this fall, but in November parent company Stellantis announced the reveal would be pushed back to CES.
For now, we get a short video that focuses on the design process, with sound bits from designers and glimpses of color samples for the interior and a clay model being sculpted.

A production version of the concept will be launched in 2024. Ram said its electric truck will outperform the competition in terms of range and charging times, as well as trailer and payload capacities. However, the brand does not name the price.
Until the Ram electric pickup arrives, it will face a lot of competition from the Ford F-150 Lightning, Chevrolet Silverado EV, GMC Sierra EV and the Rivian R1T.
Ram’s electric truck will ride on the STLA Frame chassis, which is one of four EV platforms Stellantis plans to launch in the coming years. The STLA frame is said to be designed for body-built vehicles like pickup trucks, large SUVs and commercial vehicles, and could offer up to 500 miles of range on some models, Stellantis said.
Ram has said it will offer electrified powertrains across the majority of its lineup by 2025, and across its lineup no later than 2030, but it hasn’t specified at what level of electrification. Efforts could include 48-volt mild hybrid systems, such as those introduced on the 2019 Ram 1500.
A refreshed Ram 1500 on the horizon will likely expand electrification efforts, but there won’t be a turbo-four powertrain like General Motors has used to improve fuel economy in its big trucks, said Ram CEO Mike Koval, Jr , opposite Motor Authority.
