The auto market as we know is going to see a major change over the next two years. In 2020, pretty much every major automaker released a battery-electric vehicle (BEV) plan for the rest of the decade. Many of the goals presented at the time had a target date between 2025-2027 to see the majority of results and new model lineups to populate the market. One of these business strategies was Stellantis Dare Forward 2030. With plants to expand its commercial truck lineup in a new plan called “Pro One” Ram Truck will be expanding its BEV lineup, introduce a new hydrogen-powered pickup truck, and may even introduce a new generation of pickup trucks that feature connectivity and autonomous services.
Stellantis has steadily entered the electrification of its lineup in recent years, starting with electrified Jeep SUVS and the introduction of 4xe vehicles like the Jeep Wrangler 4xe and Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe models. Other Stellantis brands are also starting to offer BEV alternatives, such as Dodge expanding eMuscle with the Dodge Hornet R/T and the Charger Daytona SRT BEV Concept. Ram released the first-ever Ram ProMaster in 2023, already selling an entire fleet to Amazon, and the automaker revealed the specs on the first-ever all-electric Ram pickup truck, the 2025 Ram 1500 REV.
With all of these new BEV models coming to the lineup, Stellantis will need to have a steady supply of BEV batteries to power these new models. Like many other automakers, third-party companies are entering into joint ventures to supply automakers with resources, materials, and technologies. Stellantis and Samsung SDI have entered into such a joint venture that has resulted in two BEV battery facilities being built in Kokomo, Indiana. If the Ram ProMaster BEV and 2025 Ram 1500 REV are the first half of the four new models, then what does that mean for the hydrogen-powered pickup truck?
There’s been a long debate on whether hydrogen fuel cell vehicles could become the next alternative fuel option for the auto industry, and competitor automakers have definitely done their research into hydrogen, such as the Hyundai Motor Group working with Next Hydrogen. Stellantis hasn’t reported much information on its upcoming hydrogen models, only confirming a hydrogen-powered vehicle, most likely a pickup truck, back in 2020 when detailing new models in the Dare Forward 2030 business plan. The fourth model has a few possibilities.
In 2022, a news leak on Ram Truck to reveal a mid-size pickup truck, the Ram 1200 surfaced on the internet, but no official news on that have been confirmed. The previously announced Ram 1500 REV XR designed to extend the range of the all-electric pickup truck sounds more like an expansion pack for the Ram 1500 REV, rather than a new model. This only leaves a vehicle with more connectivity and autonomous services. The latter doesn’t sound very possible still, in terms of America, but Europe claims a hydrogen fuel vehicle with second-generation zero-emission powertrains, vehicle-driver connectivity, and autonomous driving assistance systems is heading for development. Stellantis may be working with Emergency Safety Solutions Inc. to develop vehicle-to-everything (V2X) safety features, but autonomous self-driving cars sound like they’re still a ways off.
