Automaker Stellantis has announced a multiyear agreement with US fleet-management company Merchants Fleet for the purchase of 12,500 Ram ProMaster EV vans, which are to debut later this year. The van will be available in multiple configurations, roof heights, cargo lengths and body styles.
“Our all-new ProMaster EV is Ram’s first EV offering in North America and an integral step in our electrification journey that will offer more efficient options to all of our customers,” said Mike Koval Jr, Ram brand CEO. Introduction of the new van is part of the Stellantis Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan to offer EVs in the majority of its segments by 2025 and in all of its segments no later than 2030.
The agreement with Merchants Fleet follows an announcement that Amazon, as the first commercial customer for the Ram ProMaster EV, will be adding thousands of the vans to its fleet every year.
