Learn about the first electric Jeep, Dodge, and Ram vehicles arriving in 2024
Stellantis, the parent company behind Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Fiat, Chrysler and others, is set to launch several new all-electric vehicles next year to kick off its EV push. Here’s a look at the first electric vehicles scheduled for release next year.
Stellantis will launch an assault on electric vehicles in 2024
Although it will launch its first electric cars for four brands next year, it will launch its first electric cars for four brands later than most of the competition.
Under its Dare Forward 2030 strategy, the auto giant aims for 50% of all US sales (100% in Europe) to be electric by 2030. Plans include several brands going fully electric, including Alfa Romeo, by 2027 and Chrysler by 2028.
Despite this, the company’s first all-electric vehicle in the US, the Ram ProMaster EV, will debut later this year. Next year, Stellantis will step things up with the first electric vehicles from Jeep, Dodge and Fiat.
Fiat will kick things off next year with the launch of its new 500e early next year. The Fiat 500e is the brand’s best-selling electric vehicle in Europe, and CEO Olivier Francois believes it could also make a mark in the US.
Ram 1500 REV electric pickup
Ram’s first electric pickup truck, the Ram 1500 REV, is scheduled to launch in late 2024 to compete with the Ford F-150 Lightning and the upcoming Chevy Silverado EV.
CEO Carlos Tavares pledges that the Ram electric truck will “outperform all competitors” in terms of range, towing, payload and charging time.
The Ram 1500 REV will be built on the big Stellantis STLA frame with dual 250-kilowatt electric motors delivering up to 654 horsepower and 620 pound-feet of torque. Ram says its pickup truck will be able to tow up to 14,000 pounds and payloads of up to 2,800 pounds.
It will be offered with two battery options – 168 kWh or 229 kWh. The former has a target range of 350 miles, while the latter aims for 500 miles. Ram also claims the electric truck can add a range of about 110 miles in 10 minutes with 800-volt fast charging.
Dodge Charger Daytona SRT
Dodge will also dive into the electric vehicle era next year after showing us a sneak peek at what to expect with the Charger Daytona SRT concept.
The automaker calls it the “future of electrified muscle,” with patent-pending features like aerodynamic front wings, an “exhaust” noise system, and a multi-speed transmission with an electromechanical shifter.
The concept is powered by a new Banshee 800 V drivetrain that Dodge says will outperform the brand’s popular SRT Hellcat engine in all key metrics.
The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT features the three-point Frazog badge that originated on Dodge muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s. The return represents Dodge’s electrified future and commitment to its performance heritage.
Jeep will launch its first electric vehicles in the United States next year, including the Recon and Wagoneer S.
The rugged SUV brand has revealed three all-electric models set to hit the market. The first was Avenger, which was released in Europe earlier this year.
Next up will be the Recon and Wagoneer S, scheduled to hit the US market next year. The Recon will be a “rugged, fully capable electric SUV” inspired by the Jeep Wrangler. Like the Wrangler, the Recon will have options like removable doors and windows.
We got a sneak peek at the 2024 Recon Moab 4xe after photos leaked from a dealer event in Las Vegas.
Jim Morrison, president of Jeep North America, said the upcoming Recon “has the ability to cross the mighty Rubicon Trail,” known as one of the toughest off-road trails in the United States.
Perhaps most importantly, Morrison claimed you’ll also be able to “reach the end of the trail with enough range to return to the city and recharge your batteries.”
Jeep’s next electric vehicle will be the Wagoneer S. Jeep’s premium electric SUV has targeted a range of 400 miles, 600 horsepower, and a 0-60 mph time of about 3.5 seconds.
Looking to the future, other Stellantis brands, including Chrysler, will continue their offensive with their first all-electric crossover in 2025.
Ram is expected to launch a smaller electric pickup truck that is expected to launch around 2026. Dodge also has an electric crossover expected to launch in early 2026.
According to AutoForecast Solutions (via Car News), Dodge may also launch a four-door electric Charger in the near future. Meanwhile, the popular Challenger will likely get an electric upgrade within the next year or so.
