When preforming a search on Dodge RAM the results are trucks models of all years but Dodge RAM EV the results are all Dodge vehicles other than trucks
When using RAM truck EV the results are smokey pictures of headlamps and tail lights…

I fixed the link and added the Ram Revolution url.



I know EVs are boring, but they will be all over the place in 10 years. I just hope we still see gas motors being developed at the same time, but I doubt it.
I would look toward the technology the
MITSUBISHI TRITON PHEV TRUCK
and where it’s going and perhaps a crossover towards its shared technology
with FCA
Mitsubishi is planing to release a 1 ton version on the Triton PHEV that is longer with a wider wheel base with very closely protected body design projected release dates if 2023 in AU

quote” The publication from down under spoke to the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross’s chief engineer, Masahiro Awano, in December 2020, who said that they were studying a variety of plug-in hybrid powertrain options including tri-motor and quad-motor setups which could form the basis for performance-oriented models too. Thus, the Triton could become the world’s first mainstream hybrid 1-tonne light commercial vehicle.“

“The next-gen Mitsubishi Triton, at some point in its lifecycle, could acquire a sporty Ralliart variant that goes up against the Ford Ranger Raptor. During the announcement of FY2020 Financial Results, Mitsubishi confirmed that it’s relaunching the Ralliart division and teased a current-gen Triton Ralliart.”
RAM TRUCK PHEV

RAM 1200

RAM DAKOTA

Mitsubishi Pistachio

During Lee Iacoco’s presidency of Chrysler he sought the help of Heavy Industries Giant Mitsubishi Motors Division
with the tougher and more restrictive US emissions regulations
In 1999 they made a vehicle called the pistachio but only a small production run to prove the possibility of a near zero emissions internal combustion engine that tested at 70 MPG … with a 5 gallon fuel tank that’s a range of 350 miles

With some of this technology such as the automatic stop - go ASG “ a system which turns off the engine while the vehicle is stationary and automatically restarts it when the clutch is depressed.”
Aluminum hood , aluminum wheels have been adopted by late model RAM’s.
2021 RAM PHEV
With the advent and adoption of the ZF line of transmissions I believe the next step is creating a better (synthetic) fuel that us independent of the petroleum industry to create a vehicle that surpasses or matches the EV industry

Politics change, that will determine what happens over the next 10 years.

EV's are trendy, but i would never buy a used one of any brand. The batteries cost an average of $20,000. So, buy used you might be in for a shock. that being said, would that effect the actual trade in value? I mean, who wants to buy a used EV, only to find out you have to replace thee batteies? And, if you bought a new EV for, say, $60,000, would the dealer offer you a fair trade in value?

Also, an EV requires a charging station of 75 amps. You have to hire an electrician to wire up your garage for this because you just can't plug them into a 120 volt outlet because it would take at least 2 days to fully charge. So, figure out an additional cost of $2500 to $5,000 . And keep in mind there have been many garage fires they don't report with EV's catching fire while charging. (friend of mine is a firefighter)

If the Ram truck is a hybrid, meaning it will run on gas or electric, i might be interested, but, i doubt i'd buy of lrease one. IF i did lease or buy i'd have to have a lot of warranty questions...in writing..about all that's covered, including the trade in value.

Another thing to consider is that with a possible change in government, gas prices might go back down because the pipelines would be opened once again.

Just my opinions.
