The public-private partnership infecting all sectors of the economy has shifted the markets from consumer-driven to corporate-dictated in order to satisfy the demands of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) score-peddling globalists.
Companies from around the world have signed onto a deadline of 2030 to facilitate the transformation to a compliancy-based credit scoring system and those pressures have led the makers of the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel to discontinue the model in favor of an all-electric vehicle.
After previewing the launch of the Ram Revolution concept at the Detroit Auto Show, explaining that the unveiling of the automakers first all-electric pickup would take place in November, Ram brand CEO Mike Koval Jr. issued a statement announcing the end of the popular truck that has been available since 2014.
“Our Ram EcoDiesel V6 engine has delighted consumers with the highest half-ton diesel torque rating and towing capability while being the first to exceed 1,000 miles of range,” Koval bragged of the turbocharged 3.0 liter V6 that would be discontinued in January.
The move to get rid of the model that has offered the best fuel efficiency of internal combustion full-size pickups, as Fox News Digital explained, and a highway rating up to 33 miles per gallon, is part of the long-term strategy of Ram’s parent company Stellantis.
“As we quickly pivot toward an electrified future,” Koval continued, “we wanted to celebrate this last EcoDiesel milestone by offering our loyal light-duty diesel enthusiasts a final opportunity to order the truck they love.”
In March of this year, Stellantis unveiled its long-term strategic plan to offer a full line of electric vehicles by the year 2030 which just so happens to coincide with the United Nations’ “transformative promise” of “equitable and universal access” to resources in a world free of want.
With the electric pickup from Ram slated to go on sale with other 2024-year models, the push for compliance with ESG ratings has continued to ignore the capabilities of energy grids both domestically and abroad well before supply chains were disrupted by the pandemic or the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the sanctions that followed.
As previously reported, the wildly progressive state of California recently declared an energy emergency during a heatwave and cautioned consumers that if they didn’t “voluntarily” cut back on their energy use, they would be faced with rolling blackouts to force compliance.

The order meant that electric vehicle owners were not to waste resources by charging their cars until non-peak hours so that there would be enough energy to go around. This as the state had just passed a law banning the sale of new gasoline-powered vehicles in the state by the year 2035.
Ford had already discontinued its diesel F-150 while, for the time being, similar models from Chevrolet and GMC with combined ratings of 26 mpg are likely not far from the chopping block.
