The core of the Ramcharger’s appeal lies in its innovative powertrain. It differs from traditional hybrids by having a range extender, a 3.6-liter V6 engine that isn’t directly connected to the wheels. Instead, it charges an on-board generator that powers a powerful 95-kilowatt-hour battery, providing a continuous supply of electricity to the truck’s drivetrain.
The benefit is increased driving range.
This sophisticated system offers a number of compelling advantages:
Continuous operation of the V6 engine at constant rpm provides maximum efficiency while minimizing wear and tear. Recharging the battery while driving allows an unrivaled total range of up to 690 miles – a new standard for electric trucks. Given the experience of the BMW i3, which requires minimal maintenance due to infrequent use on daily trips, this feature seems even more practical for a truck designed for long trips and heavy hauling.
Despite its fuel-efficient design, the Ramcharger does not compromise on power and dynamics:
The Ramcharger is equipped with two electric drive modules (EDMs) that provide balanced traction: 335 hp at the front and 319 hp at the rear. This dual EDM setup ensures smooth and responsive handling. With a combined output of 663 hp and 615 lb-ft of torque, this electrified beast is capable of accelerating from zero to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds-an impressive figure for a vehicle in any class, much less a full-size pickup.
Maximum range and capability.
In the world of electric trucks, range and capability are of paramount importance:
With an electric range of up to 145 km, you can perform everyday operations without the use of gasoline. For more demanding tasks such as towing or hauling heavy loads, the Ramcharger boasts an impressive towing capacity of up to 14,000 pounds and a payload capacity of up to 2,626 pounds, proving its endurance and durability.
Charging: Versatile and convenient options.
Charging infrastructure is critical to the ubiquity of EVs. Here’s how Ramcharger addresses this challenge:
Ramcharger supports a variety of charging options, including Level 1 for simple home charging Level 2 for faster charging at home or public stations, and fast constant current charging for those who need to recharge quickly during long trips. With support for up to 145 kilowatts of DC fast charging, drivers can increase their range to 50 kilometers in about 10 minutes – an invaluable feature for busy people and professionals who can’t afford long idle times.
Design: A visionary combination.
Aesthetically, the Ramcharger represents both heritage and innovation:
It incorporates design elements from both classic Rams and their more forward-looking REV models, a combination that recalls the familiar yet emphasizes its cutting-edge character with details like unique taillights and a distinctive front grille profile.
Within the walls of the cabin is a sanctuary where luxury meets state-of-the-art technology:
A huge touchscreen display totaling more than 24 inches provides convenient access to all vehicle functions. Smartphone integration allows you to use your device as your car key: unlock doors, start the engine and recall personalized settings via your cell phone.
Advanced driver assistance features such as Hands-Free Active Driving Assist enhance safety and make long trips less tiring, providing peace of mind no matter where you go.
Protect your piece of electric innovation.

Final Thoughts: A truck evolution that exceeds expectations.
The upcoming Ramcharger isn’t just the debut of another EV – it represents a pivotal change in design philosophy for utilitarian vehicles, combining practicality with environmental stewardship without sacrificing capability and fun behind the wheel.
While we wait with bated breath for pricing details as we get closer to a late 2024 release date, one thing is clear: Ramcharger isn’t just joining the existing market – it’s poised to completely redefine it.
