2025 Ram 1500 REV has some impressive specs, but will come with a bigger battery than the Hummer EV

Ram has revealed more details about its first battery-electric vehicle, the 2025 Ram 1500 REV, at the New York Auto Show, and while the specs are eye-popping, so is the size of the battery in the electric pickup truck.

The Ram 1500 REV still won’t be available until 2025, but when it arrives the automaker says the long range variant will have up to 500 miles (804km) of range. Unfortunately to get that impressive figure Ram says it will be stuffing a ridiculously large 229kWh battery inside it, giving it an efficiency of just 2 miles per kWh. To give you an idea of how big that battery is, it is even bigger than the monstrous Hummer EV which comes equipped with a 212kWh battery, although it has an even worse efficiency of 1.6 miles per kWh.

There will also be a standard range variant of the Ram 1500 EV, which will come with a smaller (but still very large) 168kWh battery pack, giving the truck a targeted 350 miles (563km) of range.

Both variants of the Ram 1500 EV will come with 800V architecture with up to 350kW charging, allowing it to add up to 110 miles (177km) of range in about 10 minutes.

According to Ram, the truck is expected to generate 654 horsepower and 620 pound-feet of torque, enabling it to reach 60 mph in a respectable 4.4 seconds. The standard range version of the truck will be capable of towing up to 14,000 pounds and carrying a maximum payload of 2,700 pounds. However, Ram didn’t reveal tow ratings for the long-range model.

The 1500 REV will have the ability to engage in bidirectional charging with other vehicles, the grid, and your home. Additionally, the truck’s front and rear onboard power sources will supply power to accessories. The truck’s bed panel will have the capacity to produce up to 7.2 kW of power, while the frunk will produce up to 3.6 kW.

The 2025 1500 REV is scheduled to start production in Q4 2024, with deliveries beginning shortly after in early 2025. The price of the Ram 1500 REV has yet to be announced, but it is expected to be significantly more expensive than the gas or diesel-powered Ram 1500, given its larger battery capacity than its competitors.
