Fiat Chrysler plans to offer its Ram pick-up with an electric drive in the future. The company has thus joined the list of automakers who want to sell the most popular vehicle segment in the USA with powerful electric motors and batteries instead of large combustion engines.
General Motors recently presented the GMC Hummer , which is supposed to drive exclusively electrically. Tesla's Cybertruck and the Rivian R1T are also new developments. Ford also wants to run its best-selling Ford F-150 model electrically. Most electric pickups are expected to hit the market in the next 24 months.
Fiat Chrysler has so far shown little initiative to switch to electric cars. On the contrary: In order to prevent fines for excessively high fleet emissions, the manufacturer wants to pay Tesla up to two billion US dollars in order to get their emission rights.
Fiat Chrysler CEO Mike Manley confirmed in the analyst conference on the occasion of the quarterly figures that the company will build the pick-up Ram in an electric version, as the newspaper Detroit Free Press reported . Details are not yet available.
