    “The Ram 1500 Revolution BEV Concept is our clearest signal yet that we’re on the precipice of something extraordinary at Ram and points directly to where we’re going on our electrified journey.

    Atop the Ram 1500 Revolution BEV Concept is an electro-chromatic roof. Pretty much like the panoramic roof with “Variable Light Control” from Porsche, the one installed on Ram’s concept pickup truck offers owners the ability to adjust its opaqueness. Further, the full glass roof with electro-chromatic panels and integrated roof rails features ambient lightning that’s operated through the overhead console.
