Ram has revealed the all-new ProMaster Electric Van, its first fully-electric vehicle that will offer commercial customers a broad range of EV- and van-focused features, including a 162-mile (260 km) electric driving range.

The new van will be offered in two configurations based on different user needs, with three models available initially – including a delivery model and two cargo models. These cargo models will offer customers a choice between a cargo length of 12 feet, and an extended cargo length of 13.5 feet, with both offering a 159-inch wheelbase. The cargo van likewise offers up to 3,020 lb (1369 kg) of payload, while the delivery version provides up to 2,030 lb (920 kg).

While the delivery and cargo models differ in their design, they share the same EV setup – including a standard 110 kWh battery pack, with a 200-kW electric drive module that delivers 268 hp (197 kW) of power, 302 lb-ft (409 Nm) of torque and standard front-wheel drive. The line-up likewise offers a variety of EV charging options designed to cater to different user needs – including L3 50 kW, 85 kW, 125 kW, and 150 kW DC options, and an available L2 wall box charger with up to 11 kW. Supporting the charging experience are two dedicated features available on all ProMaster EV models – the Charging Station Locator, which searches for nearby EV chargers when the vehicle reaches a low level of energy, and EV Dynamic Trip Prediction, which provides a projected and actual modeled discharge profile (indicating the percentage of battery discharged relative to its overall capacity).

In meeting the needs of the electric van’s customers within the vocational and delivery space, Ram has designed its van to be customizable to the demands of commercial customers and uplifters. Here, the delivery model provides a 159-inch wheelbase with a high roof, heated steering wheel, and a heated windshield. The van’s cargo-handling capabilities are presented through its 524 cubic feet of cargo space, with a standard interior cargo height of 86 inches, as well as a low load-floor height and cargo width between wheel wells. In the future, Ram will look to offer the ProMaster EV in five configurations – including two roof heights, two cargo lengths, and two body styles. For upfitters, the new van will offer a unique front-drive system and body-integral construction, as well as the choice between its various configurations. Upfitters will benefit further from vertically-oriented sidewalls (standing at around 90 degrees in relation to the cargo compartment floor), and the van’s 75.6-inch cargo width.

Provided with the van is a suite of safety and security technologies, including a Park Sense system, for the front and rear of the EV, a white noise backup alarm, and a conventional backup alarm. These systems are supported by an array of standard safety features, including Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning, Crosswind Assist, rear backup camera with dynamic gridlines, post-collision braking, Drowsiness Detection, traffic sign information, auto high-beams, cornering function fog lamps, push-button starter, keyless entry (for all doors) and an electric parking brake. Further features, including a selection of ADAS, are available optionally, such as Intelligent Speed Assist, Lane Keep Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Active Drive Assist system, front parking sensors, a digital rear view mirror, a 360-degree Surround View Camera, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. The new ProMaster will also feature Secure Park, which prevents the vehicle from being shifted out of the park gear unless a key is present.

Inside, the new ProMaster electric van hosts Stellantis’ Uconnect 5 IVI system on a standard, reconfigurable, 10.1-inch touchscreen. In addition to the screen’s split-screen capabilities, Uconnect 5 also provides content from SiriusXM with 360L, in-vehicle Wi-Fi, and up to five individual user profiles (each offering customizable music preferences, apps, mirror angles, and HVAC levels). A fully customizable home screen offers quick access to frequently used features with one-touch operation. Wireless Bluetooth connectivity for up to two devices simultaneously is included, as well as wireless compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The inclusion of the Alexa In-Vehicle Assistant enables the van to be started remotely, with the ability to lock or unlock the doors, play music, check the news, weather, traffic and sports scores in real time. Uconnect 5 also offers OTA map updates for the van’s native navigation system, Uconnect NAV.

Further along the interior, front-row passengers will be able to benefit from an array of standard and available options for charging small electronics devices. These include a standard 12V power outlet, with standard USB-A and USB-C outlets, as well as an available wireless charging pad and an optional 115V/150W power outlet positioned beneath the USB ports.

The new electric ProMaster range ultimately contributes to the Dare Forward 2030 strategy of Ram’s parent company, Stellantis, through which the corporation is aiming to deliver clean, safe, and affordable mobility solutions. Here, it is investing more than €30 billion (£25.7 billion / $32.6 billion) into electrification and software through 2025 for use in its forthcoming BEVs. Ram, itself, plans to support the strategy by delivering further electrified vehicle solutions with advanced technology in the coming years.
