Stellantis announced a Ram ProMaster EV coming later in 2023, with the electric Ram 1500 pickup due in 2024.
Stellantis today unveiled its future business plan, Dare Forward 2030, during a global press event in Amsterdam, Netherlands. It focuses on electrification, mobility, data as a service, lower carbon footprint, improved customer service, and so on, as one might expect. Stellantis anticipates more than 100 additional product launches between now and 2030.
- Stellantis said today that it will bring out the first fully electric Jeep in early 2023.
- The image shown with the announcement appears to show a vehicle about the size of the Compass, but no name or details were provided.
- The Jeep EV is only one of 100 planned EV launches from the multi-brand automaker by 2030, including electric muscle cars and family vehicles.

Jeep’s first electric vehicle, due in “early 2023,” is one of the highlights. There’s no news on whether that’s a new model or an electric version of a current Jeep, though the timing strongly supports the latter, and based on the image, we’d guess it’ll be similar in size to the Compass. The new Jeep EV will debut in 2024, ahead of the previously promised Wrangler EV.
A Ram ProMaster van will be the next battery-electric vehicle to be released in late 2023, followed by a Ram 1500 electric pickup in 2024. (teaser image above). Although the company acknowledges that they are late to the burgeoning EV pickup market, CEO Carlos Tavares claims that the Ram will outperform all others in terms of range, towing, payload, and charging time, including the Rivian R1T, Ford F-150 Lightning, Chevrolet Silverado EV, and even the Tesla Cybertruck. That’s a big assertion, and we’ll be waiting to see if it comes true.
In addition to Jeep’s “Lifestyle Family SUVs” and Dodge’s first electric, dubbed a “Performance Muscle Car,” the Wrangler EV will debut in 2024. In 2025, Chrysler will finally join the party with a “Lifestyle Family Car” based on the Airflow concept presented at CES.
By 2030, the goal is for electric vehicles to account for 50% of all sales in the United States, and 100% in Europe.
In addition to battery-electrics, Stellantis is also planning to delve further into hydrogen-powered vehicles. Last year, the company introduced a hydrogen-powered version of the Peugeot e-Expert and Opel Vivaro-e mid-size vans, and it will expand those offerings to larger models in 2024, with the U.S. getting a hydrogen-powered full-size Ram ProMaster van in 2025. Tier 1 supplier Faurecia is a technology partner on the hydrogen effort, which is likely to be exclusively a fleet offering. The company plans to further expand hydrogen powertrains into heavy-duty trucks.
Interestingly, it appears—from the above slide at least—that Stellantis is operating under a No Brand Left Behind policy. Even Vauxhall and Lancia are included! CEO Carlos Tavares said, however, that no additional Stellantis brands will be coming to the United States, so apparently, Francophiles can forget about seeing DS or Peugeot automobiles here.
