Jeep revealed its plans to become the leading zero-emission SUV brand in the world with the introduction of four all-new, all-electric SUVs in North America and Europe by the end of 2025. This next phase of production, which was announced on Jeep’s YouTube channel, aligns the brand with the net-zero carbon emissions targets set by Stellantis during the Dare Forward 2030 long-term strategic plan.
As part of Jeep’s sustainable transformation, 50 per cent of Jeep brand sales in the US will be fully electric by 2030, while 100 per cent of European sales will be all-electric by then. The video shared by Jeep, titled Jeep 4xe Day: Freedom Is Electric, teased the first images of two fully electric SUVs – the all-new Jeep Recon and an all-new Wagoneer, code name Wagoneer S. These models are expected to arrive in North America and other regions around the world, while the all-electric Jeep Avenger is slated to launch in Europe early next year after its unveiling at the Paris Motor Show on October 17.
The expansion of Jeep’s electrified product range is incredibly exciting for fans of the brand, as the Jeep Wrangler 4xe is currently the best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) in the US, and the recently introduced Grand Cherokee 4xe has been met with no shortage of praise. With these new electrified SUVs, Jeep hopes to “enhance the brand’s legendary capability and expanding its reach in North America, while redefining freedom and adventure in a way that only the Jeep brand can.”
Notably, the all-new Wagoneer models will deliver powertrains that target an estimated 500 miles of combined range. “We’ll delight our customers with a premium, highly efficient SUV that is loaded with technology and high quality craftmanship, offering 4×4 capability, high performance, rapid acceleration and a target range of 400 miles on a single charge,” shared Christian Meunier, Jeep brand CEO. The all-electric Jeep Recon, on the other hand, will boast capability to cross the mighty Rubicon Trail (one of the most challenging off-road trails in the US), with enough range to drive back to town and recharge.
The new Wagoneer BEV will also be displayed to the public next year and production will start in 2024 in North America, with customers in North America able to make reservations in early 2023. The Jeep Recon BEV SUV will be open for reservations to customers in early 2023, and will be sold in major markets around the world, including Europe. The Jeep Avenger, the first-ever fully electric Jeep SUV, will debut in Europe during the Paris Motor Show press day, on October 17, with reservations opening for customers that same day.
“Today we shared only a glimpse of our new portfolio of all-electric SUVs, providing tangible evidence of what is to come in the next 24 months and why we say that 4xe is the new 4×4,” said Meunier. “This powerful combination of Jeep design, legendary 4×4 capability and electrification will reshape the SUV market, allowing more customers in more countries and in more segments to join us on our path toward Zero Emission Freedom.”
