What We Know So Far



The new Ram ProMaster EV lacks two things that traditional delivery vans have: the rumble of an internal combustion engine and the tailpipe emissions that come with it. The ProMaster EV is the all-electric version of the large, gas-powered Ram ProMaster van, and it’s expected to be virtually identical to the Fiat E-Ducato already on sale in Europe. (Parent company Stellantis owns both the Ram and Fiat brands.) E-Ducatos are juiced up by either a standard 47.0-kWh battery or an optional 79.0 kWh pack, and we expect a range of around 125 miles from the smaller battery off—about the same as Ford’s E-Transit. The ProMaster EV’s payload should also be similar to the Fiat’s claimed 4189-pound payload, but so far Ram hasn’t released any official specs. The ProMaster EV is still many months away from its on-sale date, so our speculation may change as we learn more about what it will offer. When it eventually goes on sale, it will join a growing number of electric commercial vehicles, including the Ford as well as the Mercedes-Benz eSprinter.

What’s new for 2024?

The Ram ProMaster EV electric truck is expected to be officially unveiled in the first half of the 2023; deliveries may begin sometime during the second half of the year.

Prices and which one to buy

Chassis Cab Standard Series

$50,000 (estimated)

Truck Standard Series

$52,000 (estimated)

Chassis cab extended range

$54,000 (estimated)

Truck Extended Series

$56,000 (estimated)

We expect prices to start around $50,000, with the larger battery offered as an extra-cost option. We also don’t yet know what body configurations will be available, although the Fiat E-Ducato is available in a cargo van and chassis cab form. Given our limited knowledge of the Ram ProMaster EV model line, we cannot yet make a recommendation.

EV motor, power and performance

The ProMaster EV’s European cousin, the Fiat E-Ducato, uses an electric motor capable of generating 121 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. The US-spec ProMaster EV may come with a different electric drivetrain, but we expect it to be offered with front-wheel drive only. We will update this story when more information becomes available.

Towing and payload capacity

Given that the ProMaster EV is expected to be virtually identical to the Fiat E-Ducato, we expect it to have a similar payload capacity of around 4189 pounds. That’s about 500 pounds less than the gas-powered ProMaster can carry and about 300 pounds more than the Ford E-Transit’s payload rating. Towing capacity figures have not yet been released.

Range, charging and battery life

The ProMaster EV’s standard battery pack consists of three parallel modules while the extended pack consists of five. There’s no word yet on load times. If we translate the current European WLTP range estimate for the smaller battery pack to the more stringent EPA test procedures, we would expect a range of around 125. That’s about as far as the Ford E-Transit can go on a single charge, according to the EPA.
