STELLANTIS CONFIRMS ITS FUTURE EVs
By Éric Descarries
It seems that the new automotive giant Stellantis is not yet as involved in the commercialization of electric vehicles (EVs) as its main competitors. However, it recently confirmed that, like them, it will be putting aside the majority of its internal combustion engine vehicles in favour of EVs.
The first of these vehicles would be, in all probability, an electric version of its Ram Promaster delivery van. It would be followed by an all-electric version of its Ram pickup, the REV, due to go on sale in 2024. Rumours (well founded) tell us that a mid-size pickup, offered in electric configuration, should be unveiled as early as 2026, followed by a mid-size CUV from Chrysler in 2025. Obviously, after the unveiling of the Charger Daytona SRT styling study last year, we can expect to see electric replacements for the Dodge Charger and Challenger within the next few months.
On the Jeep side, observers believe in an all-electric version of the Wrangler after seeing the Magneto prototype as a follow-up to the current 4xe plug-in hybrid Wrangler. However, the brand’s European fans will soon be able to get their hands on the compact Recon, while in the USA, Stellantis has already announced the arrival of an all-electric Wagoneer S for 2024. The vehicle does not yet have a specific name.
There are other electric vehicles to come from Stellantis, which should already be bringing the Fiat 500 back to America, but only in EV form, while its Alfa Romeo products won’t go electric until 2027 and Chrysler in 2028. By 2030, more than half of Stellantis’ vehicles will be electrified, but the automaker is aiming for 100% in Europe over the same period.
