Ram Unveils New Electric Van to Rival Rivian in Commercial Market

Ram has introduced its first fully battery-electric vehicle, the new ProMaster electric cargo and delivery van. With a targeted range of 162 miles per charge, the ProMaster EV aims to compete with Rivian’s upcoming electric delivery van to lead the commercial EV space.

The ProMaster EV will be available in multiple configurations including cargo and delivery models with varying battery sizes, wheelbases, and cargo volumes. Eventually available in five configurations, ProMaster EV will include two roof heights, two cargo lengths and two body styles, resulting in cargo lengths of 12 feet and 13.5 feet.

Accessibility and cargo-handling capability are the main consideration for van buyers, and ProMaster EV includes best-in-class features, such as 524 cubic feet of cargo space, standard best-in-class interior cargo height of 86 inches, low load-floor height, cargo width between wheel wells and maximum cargo width.

Ram is emphasizing the van’s commercial capabilities like 3,020 pounds max payload, DC fast charging up to 150kW, robust telematics and fleet management tools.

As more companies electrify their fleets, Ram is seizing the initiative in the commercial EV arena. However, notably absent is electric vehicle leader Tesla which has yet to unveil plans for an electric cargo or delivery van – a potential missed opportunity.
