Ram is set to revolutionize the battery-electric vehicle (BEV) market with the introduction of the highly anticipated 2024 Ram ProMaster Electric Vehicle (EV). Building on the success of the recently redesigned ProMaster, the ProMaster EV offers businesses, construction sites, and commercial fleets a game-changing all-electric solution.
In collaboration with leading fleet management company, Merchants Fleet, Ram aims to deliver innovative, efficient, and customizable EV solutions through the ProMaster EV. This strategic partnership signifies Ram’s commitment to driving the adoption of electric vehicles in North America.
The Ram ProMaster stands out in the commercial van segment with its outstanding customization options, including various roof heights, cargo lengths, and body styles. Designed to adapt to the diverse needs of different industries and upfitters, the ProMaster sets new standards for cargo volume, turning radius, interior cargo height, load-floor height, cargo width between wheel wells, and maximum cargo width. Its best-in-class features ensure exceptional versatility and flexibility for businesses.
In a strategic collaboration, Merchants Fleet, recognized as North America’s fastest-growing fleet management company, has committed to purchasing 12,500 Ram ProMaster EVs over the coming years. This exclusive partnership enables Merchants Fleet to offer its clients a comprehensive range of short- and long-term electric vehicle leasing options. The alliance between Ram and Merchants Fleet supports the growing demand for electric vehicles and provides fleet managers with sustainable and flexible solutions tailored to their evolving needs.
Built on the original, uncompromising front-wheel-drive architecture, the Ram ProMaster EV follows in the footsteps of the Fiat E-Ducato, catering to customers’ specific requirements. The batteries are ingeniously placed under the floor, retaining the ProMaster’s impressive load capacity while optimizing weight distribution and lowering the center of gravity. This design not only enhances handling but also ensures the vehicle performs flawlessly under varying load conditions.
The ProMaster EV’s versatility and cargo space make it a perfect match for last-mile delivery services. With the availability of a “Super High Roof” configuration, the ProMaster EV offers an additional 10 inches of headroom, best-in-class cargo volume, and cargo height. Further enhancing its suitability for delivery services, a roll-up door on the back facilitates easy parcel handling, meeting the demands of e-commerce companies like Amazon that require emissions-free vehicles for their fleets.
The 2024 Ram ProMaster EV will begin to arrive in fleets later this year.
