It looks as if everybody nowadays is getting in on the electrical pickup truck pattern. Ford’s acquired its electrical F-150 coming, then there’s the R1T from Rivian, the Hummer EV from GM and so forth, however the one firm that has but to throw its hat within the ring has been Ram.

Based on an announcement made on Wednesday by Fiat Chrysler CEO Mike Manley throughout FCA’s third-quarter earnings name, that is altering. Particularly, he mentioned that “I do see that there might be an electrified Ram pickup within the market, and I might ask you simply to remain tuned for a short time, and we’ll inform you precisely when that might be.”

No, he did not provide up any particulars past that, however that will not cease us from firing up our Wild Hypothesis Machine (patent not pending) to hazard a guess at what an electrical Ram may appear to be. That is powerful, as a result of in comparison with the opposite two members of the Huge Three, FCA has the least quantity of electrification happening.

Nonetheless, we might assume that this electrical Ram can be primarily based on the 1500, which is a totally trendy truck with a fairly trendy electrical structure. We would anticipate to see two or probably three motors and four-wheel drive. We may also be very upset if Manley and the gang do not use the hell out of the identify “Ramcharger” when deciding what it will be known as.
