Jeep Presses the All-Electric Throttle at its 4xe Day Event
Jeep announced its comprehensive plan for an electrified future as part of its ongoing transformation to become the leading electrified SUV brand around the globe. The automaker’s plan to introduce four all-electric SUVs in North America and Europe by the end of 2025 is rather ambitious. By 2030, Jeep estimates that at least half of its North American sales will be electric vehicles, while 100 percent of sales in Europe will be all-electric by then. Jeep’s latest plan update fully supports Stellantis’ Dare Forward 2023 strategic plan to electrify all its brands by 2030.
“Driven by the success of our electrified 4xe portfolio in North America and Europe, we are designing and developing the most capable and sustainable Jeep SUVs to date, on our path to becoming the leading zero-emission SUV brand in the world,” said Christian Meunier, Jeep brand CEO. “This is a forward-thinking strategy to help ensure millions of Jeep fans around the world continue to have a planet to explore, embrace and protect. Electrification is great for our brand, making it even more capable, exciting, sustainable, and fun.”
Jeep followed up its announcement with the introduction of two fully-electric SUVs coming to the states, the all-new Jeep Recon and Wagoneer S.
All-new Jeep Recon
The first all-electric offering from the famed automaker is the all-new, all-electric Jeep Recon. Designed from the ground up with reliable Jeep engineering, the Jeep Recon is a rugged SUV in an all-electric package. Off-roading adventures will go on behind the wheel of the Jeep Recon thanks to its trail-rated Selec-Terrain traction management system, underbody protection, tow hooks, aggressive off-road tires, and e-locker axle technology. Other iconic Jeep features potential buyers will find on the Jeep Recon include the classic removable doors and glass and the brand’s one-touch powertop. Prospective buyers will also be happy to learn that the Jeep Recon comes standard with the latest Uconnect infotainment system, complete with detailed travel guides of the most notorious off-road trails.
“The all-new, all-electric Jeep Recon has the capability to cross the mighty Rubicon Trail, one of the most challenging off-road trails in the U.S., and reach the end of the trail with enough range to drive back to town and recharge,” added Meunier.
Jeep will unveil the SUV to the public in the coming year (2023), with production slated to start in 2024 in North America. Beginning in early 2023, U.S. customers will be able to make a reservation for the Jeep Recon. The model is subsequently programmed to be sold in major markets throughout the world.
Although the Wagoneer itself is relatively new to the market, Jeep is already planning for an all-electric variant of the model–the Wagoneer S. The upcoming Wagoneer S will expand the premium SUV’s reach in its segment by offering buyers a sleek, aerodynamic large SUV complete with standard 4×4 capability and advanced Jeep technology. Much like its recent predecessor, the Wagoneer S comes with impressive performance credentials. Buyers can expect an exterior design earmarked by its signature LED grille, as well as up to 400 miles on a single charge, 600 horsepower, and a 0 to 60 mph time of just 3.5 seconds. Just like the Jeep Recon, the Wagoneer S will be unveiled to the public in 2023, with production slated to start in 2024.
“We’ll delight our customers with a premium, highly efficient SUV that is loaded with technology and high-quality craftsmanship, offering 4×4 capability, high performance, rapid acceleration, and a target range of 400 miles on a single charge,” added Meunier.
