During Jeep’s 4xe Day event, the brand announced it would introduce four new Jeep EV models by 2025.
Jeep and other American Stelantis-owned brands Dodge and Chrysler have been late to the electric vehicle market. Still, Jeep intends to change that by introducing four new all-electric models by 2025. In their 4xe event, they announced a fully electric Jeep Wagoneer, a Jeep Wrangler-inspired Jeep Recon (an all-new model name), a Europe-based Jeep Avenger (what has been previously teased as a Jeep Jeepster), and a slew of PHEV models that will come to North America.
After hemorrhaging money in paying for carbon credits, primarily in Europe, the American Stelantis brands are now introducing their first all-electric models as part of their 100% EV sales goal for Europe and 50% EV sales goal in the U.S. by 2030.
Jeep Wagoneer S EV
The first model shown in Jeep’s 4xe event was the all-new Jeep Wagoneer S EV. This electric rendition of the now incredibly popular Jeep Wagoneer offers far more angular styling and lighting and a series of aerodynamic upgrades to aid in the vehicle’s efficiency. Most notably, the Jeep Wagoneer EV now adopts a BMW X4 coupe styling as the back window is aggressively slanted, as a wing compliments the rear of the vehicle. Jeep shared a few specs for the Wagoneer S EV; the SUV would have ~400 miles of range (643.738 kilometers), 600 horsepower, and a 0-60 of ~3.5 seconds. No other specifications were released.
Jeep Avenger EV
Jeep’s Avenger, the first of two new model names announced, will be Jeep’s first all-electric offering in Europe and will be available early next year. The Jeep Avenger is the vehicle that has been inaccurately rumored to be the Jeep Jeepster, though it may come to the U.S. under that model name. The small crossover SUV is ideal for the European market and offers a playful look and feel. Similarly to the wagoneer, limited specifications were released, but the vehicle will have ~400 kilometers (248.548 miles) of range.
Jeep Recon EV
Finally, the Jeep Recon is the brand’s new serious all-electric off-roader. Inspired by the Jeep Wrangler, the vehicle has styling reminiscent of the Ford Bronco and Land Rover Discovery. Jeep gave no specifications for this vehicle, but the brand stated that it was focused on maximizing off-road capability, fun, and freedom. If built off of the Jeep Wagoneer EV platform, the vehicle would likely not be capable of the same 400-mile range due to its decreased aerodynamics and more capable suspension setup but could retain the incredible 600 horsepower.
Excitingly, Jeep only showed off three fully electric vehicles that would be introduced by the end of 2024, but they stated that the brand would release four. Some have speculated that the brand may be working on an electric truck model based on their Jeep Gladiator platform.
Overall, this is exciting news for the heritage brand! Jeep is one of a few brands attempting to infuse fun and enjoyment into each vehicle. With electric powertrains, their vehicles can become more fun and cleaner simultaneously, and it is good news that they have recognized this fact.
