Stellantis (FCA US) Set To Release Onslaught Of EVs Starting This Year

Here Is What We Can Expect, Moving Forward...

As Stellantis moves forward with its plan to produce an extensive portfolio of electric vehicles (EVs) for the markets in the United States and Canada, we figured it would be beneficial to take a detailed look at the overall timeline of these new EVs and to identify when we can expect them to be on available in dealer showrooms.

2024 Ram ProMaster EV – 

2024 Ram ProMaster EV. (Ram).

The first EV to hit the market is the 2024 Ram ProMaster EV. The ProMaster EV is set to deliver exceptional performance capabilities in part to its European counterpart, the Fiat E-Ducato commercial van. With a rumored larger battery pack and more powerful e-motor for the North American market, the ProMaster EV promises to be a game-changer in the commercial van segment.

One of the standout features of the ProMaster EV is its front-wheel-drive architecture, ensuring uncompromising handling and control, even under heavy load conditions. Furthermore, the vehicle’s battery pack is optimally placed under the floor, leaving the load capacity intact and providing an ideal weight distribution that lowers the center of gravity. This unique feature improves the vehicle’s handling, making it a standout choice in the commercial van segment.

The recent 2023 redesign introduced a new “Super High Roof” configuration on the 13-foot cargo van. This new configuration adds 10 inches of headroom, making cargo volume and height best-in-class. In addition, a new roll-up door available on the back of the vehicle further elevates convenience, especially for those focusing on final-mile delivery. These impressive features, combined with Ram’s recent partnership with Amazon to provide emissions-free vans for their delivery fleet, solidify Ram’s commitment to sustainability and innovation, ensuring that they remain at the forefront of the industry.

2024 Fiat 500e –

The Fiat 500e is set to hit dealer showrooms by year-end, featuring an 87 kW (117 horsepower) e-motor that enables a swift 0 to 62 mph acceleration time of 9 seconds. Equipped with a 42-kWh lithium-ion battery and 85-kW fast charging capability, the 500e can build up enough energy to travel 31 miles in just 5 minutes – exceeding the average daily use requirement. Additionally, the fast charger can juice up the battery to 80% in a mere 35 minutes. The car has a Combo 2 socket on the rear right-side panel that allows AC and DC charging.
The car is a must-have for Fiat dealers who only currently have the compact 500X crossover in their showrooms. 

2024 Dodge Charger Daytona –

Dodge’s next-generation Charger should also arrive sometime early next year. The new Charger Daytona will mark the first-ever all-electric muscle car from the brand. Our sources tell us that the electric versions will arrive in showrooms before the new twin-turbo Hurricane6 engine models. 

The electric muscle car will be od in both 400-volt and 800-volt electrical architectures, with the 800-volt being the high-performance Banshee model shown in the concept. The 400-volt standard models will deliver 455 to 679 horsepower and include a new simulated shifting e-transmission. In addition, all cars will get a new patented “Fratzog exhaust” sound chamber with its own unique tune.

2024 Jeep® Recon (EJ) –

Jeep® has introduced an all-new off-roader called the Jeep Recon (EJ), a smaller offering than the iconic Jeep Wrangler (JL). The Recon will not replace the Wrangler but instead, be a “baby brother” to it. What sets the Recon apart from the Wrangler is that it is being designed from the ground up to be a 100% zero-emission off-roader, offered exclusively as a battery-electric vehicle (BEV).

The Recon will feature true “Trail-Rated” capability, such as the Jeep Selec-Terrain Traction Management System, e-Locker Axle Technology, underbody protection, tow hooks, aggressive off-road tires, and Jeep Open-Air Freedom (One-Touch Powertop, Removable Doors, and glass). The latest generation of Uconnect also comes with the Recon, providing detailed travel guides of notable off-road trails. The off-roader is set to arrive in showrooms in early 2024, offering a unique off-roading experience for adventure enthusiasts.

2024 Jeep® Wagoneer S (KX) – 

2024 Jeep® Wagoneer S BEV. (Jeep).

Jeep is looking to expand its Wagonner premium sub-brand by introducing the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S (KX). Unlike the upcoming 2024 Jeep Cherokee (KM), the codenamed Wagoneer S will only be available as a BEV.

Built on the STLA Large architecture, the new Wagoneer S is expected to deliver an impressive 600 horsepower and a range of 400 miles. It will also feature a new 800-watt electrical architecture, which is anticipated to improve fast-charging speeds. The Wagoneer S is said to have a 0 to 60 mph acceleration time of 3.5 seconds. 

Unlike its larger siblings, the Wagoneer S will be a true global Wagoneer, being offered around the globe. Expect it to arrive in mid-2024 in North American showrooms.

2025 Chrysler Airflow –

Shown in conceptual form twice, the Airflow will be Chrysler’s first EV crossover. The Airflow Graphite Concept offers a reimagined look at a vehicle destined for production for the 2025 model year. Expect the Airflow to arrive in showrooms in late-2024 in a five-passenger configuration. 

Based on the STLA Large architecture, the Airflow Concept features all-wheel-drive (AWD) capability and is powered by two 150 kW (201 horsepower) electric drive motors (EDMs), one in the front and one in the rear (for a combined output of 402 horsepower).

The STLA Large architecture was designed to accommodate larger capacity EDMs, so it wouldn’t be far off to see a possible high-performance version of the Airflow Concept in the future. The Graphite Concept setup here is aimed at delivering a maximum range achieving up to 400 miles of range on a single charge.

2025 Ram 1500 REV – 

2025 Ram 1500 REV Tungsten 4×4. (Ram).

The 2025 Ram 1500 REV will offer customers two all-electric options, including a standard 168 kWh battery pack with a targeted range of up to 350 miles and an optional 229 kWh large battery pack with a targeted range of up to an unsurpassed 500 miles. Both can add up to 110 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes with 800-volt DC fast charging at up to 350 kW, offering customers quick and convenient charging solutions.

Vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-home, and vehicle-to-grid bi-directional charging allow the Ram 1500 REV to charge another Stellantis EV or provide power back to the grid. With Ram’s mission to make lives easier, the truck can also send power to a home during a storm, run the tailgate party or provide power at the camp or job site. An onboard power panel in the bed can provide up to 7.2 kW, while an available onboard power panel in the front trunk (frunk) provides up to 3.6 kW.

Other targeted performance figures include a 0 to 60 mph time of 4.4 seconds, 654 horsepower, and 620 lb.-ft. of torque, up to 24 inches of water fording, up to 14,000 lbs. towing, and a maximum payload capacity of 2,700 lbs. 

The 2025 Ram 1500 REV will be available in five trims, including Tradesman, Big Horn/Lone Star, Laramie, Limited, as well as the return of the beloved Tungsten model. Expect the Ram 1500 REV to hit showrooms in late-2024.

The all-new Ram 1500 REV XR (extended range) model with a class-shattering range will follow the introduction of the all-electric Ram 1500 REV.
