February 12, 2023,  Windsor, Ontario - The Ram Truck brand unveiled its highly anticipated all-new Ram 1500 REV battery-electric truck for the first time today as part of the brand’s Big Game efforts. The commercial also signaled the official launch of Ram REV Insider+ Contest for a chance at an early reservation at ramtruck.ca.  
 
The 60-second commercial, “Premature Electrification,” was released early today across Ram’s Canadian social media channels, as well as ramtruck.ca. The spot features Emmy-nominated actor Jason Jones (“The Detour,” “The Flight Attendant,” “The Daily Show”) as he addresses head-on some potential electrification anxieties that consumers may have about purchasing an all-electric vehicle, including range, power and payload.   

“We created this commercial to speak directly to Ram truck owners and potential truck owners to bring some lighthearted humour to the high-tech, EV conversation, which rightfully takes itself very seriously,” said Olivier Francois, global chief marketing officer, Stellantis. “We wanted to directly address any potential concerns about EV truck ownership using an approach that we believe will resonate with our truck-buying consumers. The intent of the spot is to let our buyers know that we have listened to their concerns as part of our dialogue with them over the last several years as we prepare to introduce the all-electric Ram 1500 REV to the market in 2024.” 
    
“The Ram brand has redefined the pickup truck segment before and will once again with its all-new Ram 1500 REV,” said Mike Koval Jr., Ram brand CEO – Stellantis. “We believe in bringing the right range of powertrain solutions to our customers, and the Ram 1500 REV will be the first in a lineup of electrified solutions that will add to our current award-winning truck lineup. We are on an exciting electrification journey that will see Ram push past the competition in areas customers care about the most: range, payload, towing and charge time.”    
 
It is paramount for the brand that Ram 1500 REV buyers have the same level of confidence in their Ram truck purchase that they’ve always held for the brand. As the Ram brand’s award-winning lineup expands to include the all-new, all-electric Ram 1500 REV, the brand is giving its owners more choices than ever to fit their individual truck needs, with the intention to deliver the right EV truck at the right time.   

In addition to the debut of the all-new, all-electric Ram 1500 REV, the Ram brand kicked off the Ram REV Insider+ Contest for a chance to win 1 of 200 early reservation access codes to pre-order a Ram 1500 REV — and get one step closer to owning a piece of Ram history.
