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.

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.

In another thread there is a discussion of Stellantis pondering which charging standard to adopt, the SAE J1772/CCS or the Tesla NACS. This order for the ProMaster EV is sizable and it also follows after the fleet order for Amazon. I'm assuming these will have the J1772/CCS receptacle because Stellantis hasn't officially announced otherwise. Remember Ford and GM have already built and sold battery electric vans with SAE compatibility, and fleets most likely bought matching charging units.

How many EVs does the USPS have already? I'm sure they are considering the ProMaster EV, despite the next generation delivery vehicles on the way. What standard does the Post Office use and want?
