Hybrid Ram a reality

by David Zatz on

Dodge’s Ram blog announced that the U.S. Dept. of Energy has ordered a test fleet of 140 Ram 1500 Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) to be produced in the United States. They will be Hemi-powered as with the Durango, using the two-mode hybrid transmission. Electrovaya has provided a 12 kilowatt-hour high energy density Lithium Ion SuperPolymer® battery system. The new Ram should be able to drive 20 miles on pure electric power.

Once built, the new Ram 1500 PHEVs will be used for three years of testing.
