January 16, 2024, Auburn Hills, Mich. – In a move electrifying the commercial vehicle market, Ram today unveiled its all-new ProMaster Electric Van (EV), marking a major milestone in the brand’s electrification journey. This debut, featuring two distinct models – the eagerly-awaited ProMaster EV delivery model (open for orders now) and the ProMaster EV non-delivery/cargo model (coming soon) – signals Ram’s commitment to innovative, zero-emission transportation.
The ProMaster EV, not just another van on the block, boasts a robust 110-kWh battery pack, offering a sprightly city range of up to 162 miles. It’s a charging chameleon, compatible with Level 3 DC fast charging at various speeds (50 kW to 150 kW) and also cozy with a Level 2 wall box charger, up to 11 kW. Designed on the ProMaster’s tried-and-true architecture but reimagined for electrification, this van integrates its battery pack seamlessly into a unibody design.
The delivery model, a dream for drivers, features a 159-inch wheelbase, extended super-high-roof, and comforts like a heated steering wheel and windshield. It’s not just about comfort – new safety and security features like Park Sense with stop and dual backup alarms have been added for peace of mind.
Tim Kuniskis, CEO of Ram brand at Stellantis, shares, “The Ram ProMaster EV isn’t just our first electric leap; it’s a game-changer for the commercial market, marrying zero emissions with our renowned capability and technology.”
This launch is part of Stellantis’ Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan, where Ram plays a pivotal role in delivering clean, innovative, and affordable mobility solutions. Over €30 billion is being invested through 2025 in electrification and software by Stellantis, with Ram at the forefront of this exciting revolution.
The ProMaster EV isn’t just about going green; it’s about carrying loads, too. With a payload capacity of up to 3,020 pounds for the cargo van and 2,030 pounds for the delivery configuration, it’s ready for heavy lifting. The electric drive module churns out 268 horsepower and 302 lb.-ft. of torque, ensuring no compromise on performance.
In terms of technology, the ProMaster EV leads the pack. It includes Ram Telematics for optimizing fleet operations, real-time diagnostics, and features like last-mile navigation and Alexa integration for a seamless connection between home and vehicle.
For the hardworking commercial user, the ProMaster EV is customizable to the core, with multiple configurations and an upfitter-friendly design. It’s built to handle the daily grind and then some, offering the most advanced safety, security, and technological features in its class.
Finally, the Uconnect 5 system with a 10.1-inch touchscreen ensures that the ProMaster EV is not just a workhorse, but a smart and connected one, too. It’s a blend of practicality, innovation, and forward-thinking design – a true testament to Ram’s vision of powering the future of commercial transportation.
As Ram continues its journey of innovation and excellence, the ProMaster Electric Van stands as a bold statement – a powerful, capable, and environmentally friendly solution for today’s dynamic commercial needs.
